When Tanel's lover takes him to see the teller of naughty stories, he does not expect it to be a neuter, nor for it to challenge him to examine his own preconceptions, his fears... his ability to love. A story of aliens, originally published in Strange Horizons, "Unspeakable" won the Reader's Choice award, was a finalist for…
– and the only thing between him and his ruin is the gentle Calligrapher, Farren Nai'Sheviet-osulkedi. When they are dispatched by the god of Civilization to Qenain, the House of Flowers, they find it in disorder, having fallen prey to a mysterious influence... an alien influence... a human one. Can one man heal Shame in time to save him and Qenain both? Or will they both fail? And what will happen in – and to – the House of Flowers?
A genteel, conversational fantasy of society, culture... and the perversions that threaten them.
