On a beautiful spring Saturday in Orsen, cosplayers from all walks of life gather at
Valhalla Hall for the Con, a fantasy laced conglomeration of business and pleasure. Each attendee has an agenda. Some may seek a rare comic. Fanboys are looking to hook up with fangirls. Some may delight in meeting a celebrity, acquiring a long-sought autograph. A few come to sell Blue Magic, a seemingly harmless drug with a hidden danger. Others, with even darker purpose, seek to kidnap a girl.
For Steve Lawson, writer and photographer, the Con is opportunity for book sales to his biggest audience ever. Photographing beautiful, exotic women in luxurious fantasy costumes for loredagger.com is his dream job. Business can truly be a pleasure.
For Miranda Carter, the Con is one chance to break away from her humdrum waitress job to accomplish her two life goals, enlarging her fledgling Mystic Potions perfume dynasty as well as her breast size. Both goals were chosen to give Miranda the better life she dreams of and hopefully, the man she loves. Big boobs and a warm smile can take a girl places.
Dee Dee Carter, sales assistant and cousin to Miranda, is at the Con strictly for business.
Yet, meeting up with multimillionaire Mel Varnos, head of MelVar Studios, could change her life forever. Becoming a superheroine does have advantages.
Alley Yo, cosplayer champion, is there for yet another win. Taking a brand new trophy
home and stealing Miranda’s love interest would be great fun. What could go wrong?
Linda Lowen, body builder extraordinaire, is there for the fun of it all. Will her well
guarded secret bring her closer to Steve, or end their business relationship?
Yes, lives will change at the Con, but in ways no one saw coming. Drugs, money, sex and even death are all tools used by the mysterious Slone in his quest for power. Will he corrupt the Con itself for his own evil goals? Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.
