The Bachelor Machine

Now available in ebook for the first time, 18 short stories of crackling erotic futures by the master of erotic voice, M. Christian. Men, women, hackers, derelicts, enforcers, hustlers, and whores in every combination inhabit the streets and beds and back alleys of Christian’s imagination. This is erotic science fiction at its best.

Praise for The Bachelor Machine:

The experience of reading The Bachelor Machine is not just one of technological wonder or erotic arousal. It’s also one of confusion and uncertainty, of equal measures dread and desire. These are stories that lead you on, draw you in, and take rude liberties with your expectations.
—Sally Sapphire, Bibrary Bookslut

There is an uncommon variety of material in here, from cyberpunk to space opera, alternative history to dystopia. The science-fictional settings are manifold, as are the sexual positions and inclinations–and, more importantly, the role of the inevitable explicit sex within each story. From the frivolous to the poignant to the socio-politically scathing, there’s something in this book for everyone.
—Johann Carlisle, The Future Fire

Christian is one of a kind and he again proves that here. By using satire and irony and combining that with science fiction and erotica, it is almost to say that he has created an entire new genre.
—Amos Lassen

M. Christian’s stories squat at the intersection of Primal Urges Avenue and Hi-Tech Parkway like a feral-eyed, half-naked Karen Black leering and stabbing her fractal machete into the tarmac. Truly an author for our post-everything 21st century.
—Paul Di Filippo, author of the Steampunk Trilogy

When I pick up a book by M. Christian, I know that I’ll be surprised and delighted. Whether he’s targeting horror, thriller, sci-fi or erotica genres, or some creative mixture, he never fails to deliver an original perspective.
—Lisabet Sarai, author of Incognito and Fire

M. Christian is one hell of a writer. He paints his universes and characters in full, living color, thrills the reader with non-stop action. A no-holds-barred storyteller, he embraces his reader at the start and doesn’t let go until long after the end.
—Mari Adkins, Apex Publications contributing editor

M. Christian is the chameleon of modern erotica. One day punk, another romantic; one day straight, another totally perverse and polyamorous. But always sexy and gripping.
—Maxim Jakubowksi, editor of the Mammoth Book of Erotica series
