#Free Short story #TheTrainStation and two more stories by #AlpMortal all for #Free
This is a short, fun and erotic story, as erotic as I will ever write, for you all to enjoy for #Free.
When asked by Alp if I wanted to contribute a short story for his blog, where he from time to time shares his own work, I was thrilled and very flattered by the chance to do so, since Alp is not only a good friend but a great author himself.
Also, at the time I was editing (still am) a book I wrote called Love of the Game and an idea hit me, something I wanted to try to write and was tying to do with my full length novel but didn't know how well it would turn out. So, I used this as a perfect time to not only write something fun to share with both Alp and you guys but to spread my wings and see how well I did. Personally, I have to say I am pretty happy with the outcome.
In this short story of mine you'll meet Johannes Alm, a Swedish SHL (Swedish Hockey League) player, a year before Love of the Game takes place.
Blurb for The Train Station:
Johannes Alm is at the starting point of his career as a professional hockey player, when on his way to Stockholm for an event his train gets delayed leaving him with too much time to kill. Bored he gives his lover, Adam, a call hoping to be invited over for a quick tumble in bed but Adam has something else in mind. Before Johannes knows it he's been lured into a game of hide and go seek, the kinky kind, right there at the Train Station.
And for all it is worth don't miss out on Alp Mortal's two freebies, #TheLocksmith is by far a big all time favorite short stories of mine and knocked me off my feet when I read it. Just ask Alp my initial reaction to reading it.
Thank you a million Alp for including me in this very fun project! hugs!
This is the third book I read by Alp Mortal, it is the third book and the more I read by Alp the more I’m starting to love his style. He doesn’t just have one. I’ve read Brave, listened to New World (and damn it Stuart Campbell who narrates that book the voice, SPOT ON!) and now the Last Jötunn.
I’ve been looking for words or ways to describe Alp’s way of writing and it the best thing I can describe it, that it feels as if you are being spoken too. The words flow, the characters reactions, thoughts and actions are so clear and clean, for the lack of a better word that it’s like they’ve grabbed you by the hand and is saying: “Come let me tell you a story.
Alp mortal writes fairly complicated stories with what I so far say is a lot of different twists and turns which from my knowledge and experience demands quite a lot of research and common knowledge about a lot of different things. The thing about it though when you read his books you will be stunned by the accuracy and lack of inconsistency his books has.
In this particular case, being a Scandinavian myself, and pretty familiar with Norse Mythology (even though I unlike Alp hasn’t read the poetic Edda) am after reading this fairly short but well written book stunned by his fantastic imagination. It takes skills and true interest to be able to put that magical it/myth into a story that merely or fully exist in the world as we know it and it fitting like a glove, and without having parts that doesn’t make sense. Everything about the Last Jötunn makes sense nothing of the magic and “it” factor that appears seems the slightest bit odd.
The Last Jötunn, is about a man named Jack, a single gay man in his 50’s, who is currently visiting his friends who lives up in the mountains. They have gone away to Hawaii to get married and Jack is there to take care of their place and their dog while they marry and honeymoon.
Jack is at crossroads in his life, he’s just sold his company and is currently pondering, what to do with the rest of his life, to find someone to share it with and if that is worth it and how one goes about finding that special someone. Jack isn’t grumpy but he’s fairly humorous in moments of high frustration, like when he’s out in the deep snow in slippers and with a torch looking for the dog whose refusing to come back inside for some reason.
In the middle of being acquainted with Jack, both Jack and the dog he is taking care of are confronted or at least partly confronted with what Jack thinks is a huge boar and for the longest time we are kept at suspense on what or who it is Jack have seen and what takes place when Jack finds out wasn’t at all what I had expected to happened, it was way better!
I hope that Alp continues to be inspired by the Poetic Edda and Jack and his friends fate and that there will be a continuance to this story, because I for one would love to find out what happens next.

Brave, by Alp Mortal, was the first book I read by this author, and what a great start it was! I think this type of book is one of my absolute favorite kind of books, with a lovely love story mixed in with a great suspense story.
What I like most about it, is the fact that it starts out really calm and sweet, well besides the fact that one of the main characters, who later will chose his name to be Archie, is hit by a car that belongs to a wealthy and kind man named Joseph. It starts out that way but Alp Mortal has this fantastic way of slowly building up and sneaking in suspicion in you, the readers, mind without you really knowing it or being able to pinpoint it but when shit hit’s the fan you’re like, I knew it!
Archie is at the time he gets hit by Joseph’s car, homeless and living on the street, and has done so since he was a young child. His time on the streets has been so long and lonely, that he’s forgotten his own name. In Joseph’s care he’s taken care of by Joseph himself and his chauffeur and butler, Jacob, who both becomes his close friends. In the midst of this enter Anthony, who is a teacher who is there to teach Archie about the world, to read and understand the world around him; and foremost enter Nathan.
Nathan is there to help Archie to care for him, help him with his physical therapy and make sure that he heals. Between taking care of Archie, and Archie learning about the world from Anthony as well as choosing his own name with Joseph’s help, Nathan and Archie slowly starts to fall in love. Just as Archie and Nathan has fallen in love, and is exploring this love, odd things starts to happen, things you can pinpoint exactly what they are and one night Jacob comes to their room only to tell them that they are going to have to leave very hastily and never look back, them and him, which they all do.
The second half of this book, is a mix of heart beating suspense and heart beating love, and the beginning of a new family. As a reader you are torn between worrying about what will happen, will they find each other again, will the evil in men who Archie and Nathan thought were their friends find them, who is a foe and who is a friend. The suspense is dragged out to the very end and the ending is top notch. It keeps you wanting more but Alp Mortal still manages to wrap you up in a nice warm blanket.
Alp Mortal has a excellent skill of telling a story, he seduces you with easy words, well thought out characters and plot, which all helps keeping you on your toes. Do not miss this book and the journey of young love trying to conquer evil in it’s truest form, human greed.
