Early Review: Loose Lips: Fanfiction Parodies of Great (and Terrible) Literature from the Smutty Stage of Shipwreck by Amy Stephenson and Casey Childers

Sep 23, 2016







Fanfiction Parodies of Great (and Terrible) Literature from the Smutty Stage of Shipwreck 
You've probably heard rumors about regions of the internet dedicated to fanfiction-vast, unmapped territories for fans so taken with their favorite books and movies (not to mention video games and cartoon cereal mascots) that they write their own continuing adventures. You've probably also heard the stories get real dirty and weird. Everything you've heard is true.

In 2013, humanitarians Amy Stephenson and Casey A. Childers took fanfiction from the internet to the stage with Shipwreck, a monthly erotic fanfiction competition. Shipwreck is simple:

Invite (bestselling, Hugo, Nebula, and Rita award-winning) writers to rework literature into low humor, erotic pastiche, and, like, LOTS of dick euphemisms
Perform said rewrites for a well-lubricated crowd

LOOSE LIPS will destroy your favorites, shock everyone in your book club, broaden your perspective, and (hopefully) make you laugh until you pee a little.

Plus, a foreword by Seanan McGuire!

4STARS

 STAR
Loose Lips just may be too bizarre and boisterous to put into words.  Loose Lips is a must read especially if you are an aficionado of fan-fiction. Outrageous takes on classics and then some.  If you are looking for foolery in troves then read Loose Lips!
