As other uedin youths face their futures with hope and excitement, Elenn must try to understand what it means that he is barren. It is a syndrome that not only deprives a uedin of his passing-of-life; it means that he is destined to deteriorate into depravity and die in misery. This knowledge poisons every aspect of life for Elenn, but can he find a way to cope, to bide his time, perhaps even to summon the strength to bear his burden with uedin dignity?
In Version M, the androgynous uedin are referred to with masculine pronouns. Consider the option of Version F which uses feminine pronouns. Which version to read, Version M or Version F? That is the challenge that I present to my readers before they even buy the book. At one time I was suggesting that readers who identify as male should read M, and those who identify as female should read F. But ...

Divorced, disillusioned and drinking too much, television writer Alex Munn is on the edge.
For two years he's been working on the ultimate drama series, a ratings-winning schlockfest of sex, adventure and violence that uses Virtix, a virtual reality technology so good the viewer won't be able to tell the difference between real life and Real Life, the new show.
To get away from it all, Alex has written an altogether darker story of his own: a Virtix program he calls Munn's World.

His nemesis is a lone cop called Alex Munn.
What happens next is impossible, unscripted, and utterly terrifying. For the Fishman has somehow escaped his virtual domain and followed Alex into the present, turning his world into a living nightmare...

"The power of Fun City Punch lies in the details, the rich language, the torrid corridors of verbal fireworks that lead into post-modern echo chambers crammed with the screams of a thousand and one wasted human narratives." Tom Vater,
"Fun City Punch is like a runaway train." Christopher Moore.
FUN CITY is made up of six major areas - The Beach, the Red Zone, the Central Business District, Metroland, Main Street and the Dark Side. These zones are all connected by alleyways and tunnels, a cryptic network of mazes not unlike the back lanes and alleyways that connected 18th century London. Perilous passages are rebuilt as soon as they are demolished. Bars, riotous patrons, and the homeless exist both in spite of and because of this labyrinth of decadence. There was the widespread use of illicit substances, distribution of sexual diseases, an escalating murder rate, the general acceptance of corrupt officials, ...
