Please welcome Zarug Thane to our blog, promoting the book Enos, an erotic fantasy novel. Below is the blurb and an excerpt, and you have the chance to win a $25 gift card.
Enos is a private investigator with a problem: he’s four months behind on the rent, and he hasn’t had a decent case in months. When the beautiful Jayleen walks into his office, matters go from bad to worse. Not only is she hoping to locate her missing roommate (who will almost certainly appear on her own within a matter of hours), Jayleen isn’t able to pay Enos’s normal rate. At least, she isn’t able to pay in cash….
To his surprise, Enos discovers that not only is Jayleen’s roommate truly missing, the young woman has been kidnapped for a most sinister purpose, by powers best left alone. There are dark forces at work, and Enos finds himself far more involved in the simple missing person case than is good for him.
Continuing his practice of having sex with anyone who doesn’t say no fast enough, Enos is soon in danger not just of eviction, but of evisceration.
Warning: For Adults Only. Heterosexual and homosexual behavior; coerced and reluctant participation; light dominance and discipline.
The kitchen of the Amenhotep filled half the basement. Enos walked past rows of stoves and ovens, long prep tables, and hanging gardens of kitchen implements that made him think of torture. Steam rose up from huge pots, staff in stained white coats and hairnets sliced onions or peeled shrimp, and a mix of smells wafted about, some wonderful like bacon going crisp, some not so wonderful, like raw seafood sitting patiently at room temperature.
White speckled arms pointed Enos hence, until he reached a woman in an awkward corner of the huge cavern, stacks and loose sheets of paper scattered about her on a flat metal work table: menu plans, supply requisitions, staff schedules, and who knew what else.
Though it still wasn’t much past noon, the woman looked ready to leave for the day, her white coat and mushroom hat (if she subscribed to such things) replaced by a waist-length black leather jacket, unzipped over what looked like a plain white t-shirt.
In her early forties, Andrea Vinwar showed her age mostly through the deepening smile lines around her mouth. Besides that, her blue jeans clung snug around plump hips and thighs, implying she’d produced a child or two along the way. Her eyes had the direct look of someone used to being in charge.
Slapping a pair of leather gloves against her opposite palm, she listened to Enos describe his situation. Enos started off with no idea what her role might be, other than that she happened to be in charge at the moment.
“I’m looking for a missing young woman,” Enos said.

About the author:
Zarug Thane was first born in the late 600s CE. According to Thane’s scattered autobiographical writings, his father was Prince of the Qinduara — a primarily Arabic people but with heavy infusions of Mongolian blood — which held dominion on the eastern fringes of the Persian Empire.
During his youth, Zarug Thane’s skills as a musician and storyteller earned him much affection from his people. However, he was ultimately forced to flee because an older brother, fearing Thane’s popularity, saw him as a political threat. In this case, Thane’s flight carried him out of the frying pan into the fire, for his travels delivered him into the clutches of Abdul al Hazred, “the mad Arab,” author of the demonic Necronomicon.
During the more than twenty years that Thane spent under al Hazred’s control, he wrote a huge body of literature, much of it now believed lost. Of what remains, some may represent real events, but most strike the modern reader as clearly the result of drug-induced visions, nearly all of them pornographic in nature.
Today, having been reincarnated as the son of southern California suburbanites, Thane believes he is to prepare the way for al Hazred’s return, in fulfillment of the End Times prophecies. In addition to having al Hazred’s body reconstituted via cloning, Thane will use his writing to further corrupt the moral values of the modern age, paving the way for humanity’s descent into utter depravity.
