The Catalyst and Other Works is a collection of Laura Antoniou's writing, including the stories The Catalyst (obviously) and Brian on the Farm. Not to be missed, this collection shows off some of Antoniou's best writing!

Praise for The Catalyst
Hot Talk: "a frankly honest yet impassioned exploration of SM play between adults discovering it for the first time." "In a world of melodramatic, highly nonconsensual and frankly improbable plots and characters, The Catalyst is a refreshing change."

Prometheus: "Covers just about every sexual combination you've ever fantasized about, and then some. This is definitely one-handed material."

The fourth book in the Marketplace series.  Taking up where The Trainer left off, as Chris Parker and dozens of other Trainers journey to Okinawa for the annual meeting of Trainers and Spotters, this book explores both the strict, hidden order behind the men and women who train the exquisite Marketplace slaves and the mysteries behind the life of Mr. Parker himself.

In an entirely new form of literature, The Academy is a full length novel incorporating independent short stories written by Guest Authors.  Karen Taylor, Cecilia Tan, Michael Hernandez, david stein and M. Christian delve into the world of the Marketplace and turn up tales of power, sex, and surrender, the kinds of stories Trainers tell each other to inspire, teach. . .or warn.

What is Chris Parker's mission during this Academy, and why is the Trainer of Trainers, Anderson, not there? Who are the top slave Trainers in the world, and how do they work? Will Michael LaGuardia, now in service as a junior trainer, ever understand the essence of submission or ownership? In addition, in a special novelette begun for this book, when did Chris Parker first meet Anderson, and how did he enter the Marketplace?

THE REUNION (back to top)

In The Reunion, two of the most popular characters in the The Marketplace series are re-united. Robin (The Slave, Book Two in the Marketplace Series), recently released from her contract, meets her old trainer Chris Parker on a trip to Ireland where they will join dozens of other slaves for a week at a centuries-old Castle (now 4-star hotel), at a Marketplace-sponsored Reunion.

For Robin, now a veteran slave, the week at Kaleigh Castle will give her time to consider whether she is ready to return to the auction block. During the Reunion, she will meet slaves from all walks of life, as well as their spouses, significant others, and even children. Some of her new friends are also struggling with their own futures, whether they are still in the Marketplace, retired, or returning to service.

As for Chris, it will be a trip back in time to a place where he learned many of the skills that made him so valuable to the Marketplace. But never completely on holiday, he hopes to meet with a handsome young Earl and his millionaire American bride, whose talents for slave-training have gained them special attention. . . including the attention of a nosy tabloid reporter, who is hoping for the biggest story of his career -- a real-life international slave trading ring.

DHAMPIR:  CHILD OF THE BLOOD       (back to top)

Vampyres walk amongst us.  Here, for perhaps the first time in this century, a vampyre of the Clan of Lilith invites us into her life through letters to her newly made "cub" and to those she calls her "food."  In Dhampir, Child of the Blood, the myths come alive, but they are not as one expects from the myriad fictional accounts.   You will see what it means to become Vampyre, what they endure, what they sacrifice and why, how a vampyre feeds, hunts and how they feel when the "beast" is upon them.  Courageously, Johnson uses her real name, discusses real people and events and passes on to us the history, legends and wisdom of The Clan of Lilith handed down by her sire when he made her.  Frank, explicit letters from a mother to a daughter about life and survival as one of the newest members of the vampyre Clan of Lilith.

Within these pages are the real life experiences of an extraordinary woman as recorded in her journal. Vi Johnson is one of the most loved and respected women in the leather community.

The life recorded here reveals that realities, which are quite different from the fantasies. Most of all this is the journey of a woman following her dream.
