An omnibus collection of the first six Oviposition Chronicles, darkly erotic tales of egg implantation.
The human body is the perfect cradle for bearing life. But not just human life.
Over nameless aeons, aliens have used us as host for their unknowable brood. For what safer place to lay their countless eggs than to hide them in the warm belly of a human female? Inside a fertile girl whose body is receptive, ripe for filling with the dread larvae of a slavering alien beast? An inquisitive girl who yearns to see her belly swell as new life grows within her womb? A naïve girl who secretly craves the wicked delights of being corrupted? A vulnerable girl who – even as she realises the fate that awaits at the bulging tip of the ovipositor – will still meekly come to have it done?
Beware the cold night. For the alien lurks in darkness. And a woman is the warmest place to hide.
Tales included in this collection:

Five Star Reader reviews for The Oviposition Chronicles
“Beautifully articulated and presented, the attention to detail and insight left by the author are mesmerising. An unexpected gem masterfully written.”
“This series hits my sweet spot for near perfect erotica balance – my inexplicable oviposition fetish, just enough characterization, just dubious / reluctant enough consent, an attention to detail, and perfect length. The author says they wrote these stories because they wanted to see more of this style of work out there, and I do too. Excellent stories.”
“There’s no violence in this story, and none of the cruelty or humiliation that too often comes with taboo erotica, and yet this is one of the eeriest tales I’ve read – and that’s a good thing! Writing a monstrous erotica story from the monster’s own perspective is an ambitious touch, and having the monster not only narrate the encounter but draw the reader into it lends it an unsettling quality that’s hard to describe. The language is vivid and poetic, the touches of dry humor here and there are all the sharper for being so sparing, and there’s a compelling blend of darkness and gentle affection throughout the story. Dark erotica doesn’t need to be brutal or degrading to leave a haunting impression, as this story perfectly demonstrates.”
“Probably one of the best oviposition stories I’ve ever read. No punches are pulled. The story is dripping with eroticism but also doesn’t shy away from the reality of the situation. Very much recommended.”
“This story is easily my favorite, probably because it’s dark, and involves insects and web bondage. The author’s note says it was written first and it took a long time to find the right balance of darkness. I think the resulting work is just dark enough, but in the middle of the story, the hints of how dark it could go interested me.”
“In case you missed the first four entries in the author’s excellent oviposition stories, and share that particular kink, here they are in a cheaper collection featuring two new short stories of five thousand words. The new stories are both excellently framed and paced, though less directly erotic, I felt. Scrambles has stuck with me as a haunting story made extremely vivid with its attention to detail, giving it that sort of more real than real feeling. Harvest is a fascinating sort of idea-story, again using negative space of just-enough exposition to let your imagination fill in the culture and dynamics of such a lifestyle. (Though I do wonder which villager first thought to herself, “Hey, you know what I should try?”)
Hoping to see more in the future”
