Here's a roundup of the online fiction and e-books that I've brought out since September 2013. I write original slash, original gen, and original het. My latest roundup is strongest in prisonfic and servantfic, but there are a few other items too. Here's my official bio:

Honored in the Rainbow Awards, Dusk Peterson writes historical speculative fiction: alternate history, historical fantasy, and retrofuture science fiction, including lgbtq novels, original slash, and other types of diverse fiction. Suspense plays an important role in many of the tales; the conflict in those tales is both external and internal. Peterson's stories are often placed in dark settings, such as prisons or wartime locations. The mood of the stories, however, is not one of unrelieved gloominess; romance, friendship, family affection, and faithful service are recurring themes.

Peterson is the author of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Dark Light, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, and The Eternal Dungeon) about disreputable men on the margins of society, and the men and women who care for them. Set between the 1880s and the 1910s, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. One of the series in the cycle, Waterman, combines elements of the 1910s with retrofuturistic imagery from the 1960s. Dusk Peterson has also written The Three Lands, a fantasy series inspired by conflicts between nations during the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages.

Note that some of the online fiction links may convert to e-book links in the future as I bring out new e-books. If that happens, you can still find the online fic mentioned below at my AO3 account.
 

Lots of fic, plus two mildly NSFW coversCollapse )

For those faithful few of you who remember the old days of the Boys in Chains archive, I've got exciting news: the archive is coming back.

For those of you who weren't around at the time, I'll explain: Boys in Chains was a multifandom archive for both fiction and art, with a focus on stories about emotional bonds between people of different ranks or status. Boys in Chains opened in 2000 as an m/m slash slavefic archive. It later expanded its content to become an archive for works representing power imbalances, including slavefic, prisonfic, hookerfic and fic with BDSM themes. It welcomed fan fiction and original fiction, as well as art depicting similar themes.

The archive is now moving in with the Archive of Our Own (AO3). To reflect its openness to f/f slash, het, and gen, the archive's name will be changing to Chains: The Powerfic Archive. For further information, please see the announcement post or contact Open Doors.

The Chains archive has been offline since the middle of the last decade, so I'm very pleased that it will be open for business again.
 
 
Title: Coded Messages.
Author: Dusk Peterson.
Where to find me: Website, DW/IJ/LJ/list, AO3.
Series: Life Prison, a speculative fiction series about male desire and determination in nineteenth-century prisons. You don't need to have read the other stories in the series to understand this one (though the first story in the series is free, if you prefer to read the series in order; "Coded Messages," a side story, is chronologically second).
Categories: Original gen, with original slash subplots. Prisonfic and mentorfic.
Length: Short story (3,000 words).
Note: This is an older story that I've put back online.
Feedback: Yes, please.
Rating: PG-13.
Summary: One of them rapes prisoners. The other wants to help prisoners. So why are they talking to each other?

As guards send each other telegraph messages through their prisons' coding offices, strange developments occur in the life prisons of the Magisterial Republic of Mip: hardened prisoners become reformers, idealists dally with danger, and the prison keepers struggle to keep control. The strangeness will only become odder when two guards, who hold very different views on the proper handling of prisoners, strive to find common ground.

"Sweet blood, Tom, sometimes I wonder at your innocence. Why do you think that your prisoners were sent to prison? It wasn't for lacing daisy chains."

Also, I've posted my August 2014 newsletter, listing my recent e-books, free fiction, bestsellers, and news.

In the Silence (Life Prison)

The prisoner can't speak. He can barely see. He experiences only fear and the faint whispers of something he had once known.

But an intruder into his secure retreat from danger will pull him into awareness of what stands before him. What stands there is renewed danger. . . and the hope of something more.

¶ PG-13; gen/slash; e-book.

Images came, like flickers of a candle: Dark stones. Dark metal. Faint fire. A spoon in his hand, as someone urged him to eat. A stinking pit that he knew he was duty-bound to fill. A loom nearby that he vaguely remembered he had once known how to work, but which now stood as silent as the rest of his world.



*

Cell-mates (Life Prison)

Sentenced to life in prison, Tyrrell didn't have many opportunities for bed-play . . . unless he could count what the guards did to him as "play." So his future seemed brighter when he was paired with a cell-mate he'd been eyeing for a long time with affection and lust.

If only Tyrrell could keep from becoming his cell-mate's latest murder victim . . .

PG-13; gen/slash/het; asexual and bisexual characters; e-book.

They had to settle the issue of sex first.

Never (The Eternal Dungeon)

She was attending the ball at the palace to dance. That was all. Which made it annoying to face a proposal of marriage from a guard who was distinctly not the sort of man she would ever consider marrying. Certainly not.

It was even more annoying to find that she kept thinking about the man. Why would she want to continue to speak to a guard who rudely implied that she led a frivolous life?

And why oh why were all the balls in the capital suddenly so boring?

¶ PG; het/gen; 50 Darkfics challenge; e-book and online fiction.

He had not seemed a threat at first, even after it became apparent that he was attending as an honored guest. He had no fortune, his face was pleasant but nothing to boast about, and he said not a word about his deeds, though he might easily have done so, with the Queen's medal of honor glittering upon his chest.
