Our stories are the complete and total product of the author's imagination and a work of fantasy, thus it is completely fictitious, i.e. it never happened and it doesn't mean to condone or endorse any of the acts that take place in it. The author certainly wouldn't want the things in these stories happening to his character(s) to happen to anyone in real life. The theme explored in these stories are FANTASY. Just as one can enjoy violent videogames or movies without committing or condoning violence in real life, a person can enjoy violent fantasies of abuse without promoting abuse in real life.
The co-authors of this fantasy do not condone the things that happen in this saga, they happen well into our future so nobody can go and try them out either! The characters in the main act within the laws and customs of their time and culture, but within these many things that some will not wish to read about happen. So if you do not like reading about sex, love, abuse and torture between adults and boys, as well as many deaths, stop reading now and don't bother to complain if you do… If you hated De Sade's 120 Days in Sodom, or Steven King's The Long Walk; then Tribute Boys is going to really disgust you. You have been warned!
If you really feel angry at our fantasy just stop and consider a moment that in our present day world the lone male 'abuser' or even those like us who spin elaborate fantasies, is condemned and vilified. Yet hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of children are subject to a whole gamut of unspeakable abuses, or even loose their lives. These actions are carried out by National Governments, Police, Armies, Multi National Corporations, Terrorist Groups, Religious Fundamentalists, or Idealistic Separatist Fighters. But of course they get either money or power out of the child's suffering, and so by and large nobody cares. The only times we have ever seen real terror on the faces of a children in photos or reality, the 'abuser' was a Social Worker, a Policeman, or a Member of the Armed Forces. Some groups also preach withdrawing help from the poor, a sort of Sociological Darwinism, attractive as it promises even greater wealth for the already wealthy. Our Tribute World just develops these concepts to their logical conclusion.
But if like the co-authors it pleases you to play with the blackest of fantasies and even recall how much you would have enjoyed them when adolescent then read on and enjoy! Indeed if you enjoy this fantasy and want to make comments or suggestions the authors would be glad to hear from you. Finally if our world fascinates you as it does us and you feel so inspired to feel free to write about it. But place the action in different countries from ours and invent your own characters. But please do play by the rules and laws of the time, we think you will find this gives you ample scope to enjoy.
