About Garland of Pleasures:
As part of a prison work program, Tack designs interactive virtual sex games. In a scant three years he has developed a reputation as a “span master” whose imagination can always bridge between two lusting organic life-forms in a coupling of wild ecstasy. That’s how the warden advertises his services on a galactic billboard. Although his contact with clients is always on-screen, no matter who the client is, or how far away, Tack has yet to design a virtual sex fantasy that fails to please humanoid pleasure seekers. Whether it’s the perverted and deranged, or desperate and desiring, he has to please them all, because a single failure would see his warden sending a signal to his collar shackle that would blow his head off.
Tack was born in a refugee compound, sold into slavery as a child at a federal auction & spent twenty years serving a syndicate of gangsters who set him up. He was then was charged with piracy and incarcerated in a federal prison where he is unhappily but safely serving his sentence—until one day when a client walks into his prison cell.
She is Sayal, a gorgeous young girl from a backwoods colony. She wants him to design a virtual sex postcard for her fiancé who just happens to be the sadistic son of the gangster who set Tack up three years ago, and is the reason why Tack is in prison.
The moment she walks into his prison cell, Tack is seized with a horrible foreboding that, unlike his prison sentence, his luck has just run out.
