Overview

Still Life: Barbara introduced a world just slightly shifted from our everyday one where, under the right circumstances, a mannequin might unexpectedly come to life to become your amazing lover. Now in Still Life: Lyssa the story continues as James, a friend of Mike and Barbara who had exactly that happen for them, wants to find his very own Barbara – as anyone knowing their story would. While the lovebirds are quite willing to help him out as best they can, James is about to learn that what you think you want, and what is actually offered up to you instead, may not be quite the same thing. The operational rules of this special world are inscrutable when viewed from only one side, which can end up presenting the hopeful lover with a Hobson's Choice of either taking what is being offered so generously to him, or losing it all if he can't overcome his own adult biases and prejudices. While you don't always get what you think you want, you may just be getting exactly what you need – if you can recognize it in time. (It is not necessary to have read Still Life: Barbara to understand and enjoy Lyssa's tale.)

Meet the Author

D. B. Story is a writer living in the southwestern United States. While that territory can cover anywhere from New Mexico to Hawaii he declines to be more specific at this time. His use of the time-honored artifice of writing under a pseudonym comes from the necessity to still maintain a day job and the habit of employers to Google new applicants to discover what stupid things said applicant is willing to foolishly do, and then doubly foolishly post for the world to see afterwards. Such invasions of one’s personal life become an unnecessary distraction. D. B. Story has long had interests in both Science Fiction (since first discovering his mother’s secret cache of Ace Doublebooks stashed under her bed) and writing. In fact, anything he has enjoyed participating in he eventually has a desire to create as well. He seriously began writing (although not selling) stories ten years ago due to a dissatisfaction with what he was reading at the time and the belief that he could do it better. He started out with the interaction between humans and the sexy robots they would inevitably create and later branched out to other erotic Fantasy and SF genres. During that time he has written everything from flash fiction to a 402,000 word novel and a screenplay based on his other writings, as yet unsold. Whether his writing is actually “better” he admits he must leave to his readers to decide, but he likes his stuff a lot. He has often said that, “Writing time is always good time.” He also says that with the advent of cheap computers, word processors, eBooks, and the Internet that times have never been better for a diversity of writers to be heard.
