Amazon.com: Tucker Teaches the Clockies to Copulate eBook: David Erik Nelson, Chad Sell: Kindle Store

"A dark comedy, wonderfully absurd, riotously bawdy, populated by a full set of fantastically flawed characters, such as Two-Ton Sadie the madam, who helps [Dickie] demonstrate the art of copulation, and 'Rabbi' Emet Kohen, who ministers to a congregation of Hebrew Zunis. Yet it is also a poignant tale of wanting to belong, wanting to be counted as a human among humans."--Lois Tilton, The Internet Review of Science Fiction
[“Tucker Teaches the Clockies to Copulate”] is at one level nearly wacky, but it has deeper concerns, reflected in the examination of the treatment of such disadvantaged individuals as alcoholics, Confederate veterans, the Chinese, Jews, and of course clockwork ex-soldiers. It all comes together very effectively.--Rich Horton, Locus, Recommended Story

[1] FYI, this Amazon Prime Lending Library deal *does* pay authors royalties, just like a purchase--in fact, owing to the wonky funding mechanism for the "library loans," someone "borrowing" the novella can actually result in a higher royalty payment than an actual "sale." Just another little magical-thinking corner of the ebook revolution.
