Every small town has secrets but when Sheriff Olsen begins an investigation of weird events in Santa Maria, he discovers close encounters of the kinkiest kind.

Invaders from the Outer Rim is a mind-bending tale that explores the unfulfilled desires of the female psyche. 

Literary critics agree this collaboration between award-winning authors Eric Coyote and Walt Morton is a groundbreaking achievement in erotic science fiction.

GUEST POST
Venus Vs. Mars - how men write erotica 

We're not even sure how to respond to this question. As writers, we believe in narrative above all else. Gender doesn't enter into the equation. With Invaders from the Outer Rim, Walt decided that since Eric spent so much time doing yoga in classes filled with predominately women, he should write the female characters; Walt concentrated on the classic sci-fi elements of the story. This decision forced Eric to become, in essence, a woman as he worked on those sections of the book. He had to channel his inner feminine mystique in order to believably think, act, and talk like the heroines of the story. In the process, he was compelled to approach human sexuality from a distinctly female perspective. Eric achieved this by flipping the script. Instead of the standard patriarchal hierarchy, unadulterated sexual gratification is the brass ring every female character grasps while the menfolk in the tale are left limp-d***d, frustrated, and confused. 

For the record, Eric will neither confirm nor deny he wore lingerie from Victoria's Secret to feel more like a woman as he wrote the sex scenes. It does not matter. At the end of the day, we're all human. Unless you're an alien.
About the authors: 
Eric Coyote and Walt Morton both attended the University of Southern California’s prestigious film school, which is (in retrospect) poor training for anyone writing erotic science fiction.

Eric is the author of the ultra noir detective novel The Long Drunk, named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best of 2012. Walt’s debut novel American Ghoul is a dark fantasy beloved by fans and food critics. 

Both men live in Venice, California, but almost never go to the beach, and neither surfs.
