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 ofdick euphemisms
Perform said rewrites for a well-lubricated crowd
Here, in book form, you'll find the most outrageous wrecks in Shipwreck's three-year history, drawn kicking and moaning from twenty-three of history's most cherished books and illustrated for your pleasure. 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.
