New Lovers 4: My Wet Hot Drone Summer

by Lex Brown




“A sci-fi romp with sex acts stacked on top of each other in a sort of dripping post-modern parody”


“Literary raunchiness”

—New York Journal of Books

“Using the cloak of the erotic novel, which historically has been seen as light entertainment and even farce, Brown’s discussion of body politics, privacy, and surveillance feels remarkably subversive”

—Full Stop

“Hard to put down”


The year is 2056. Hotshot lawyer Mia Garner needs a fresh start after dumping her cheating boyfriend. So she goes on a cross-country drive with Derek, her handsome tech stepbrother, to meet Xavier Céron, a mysterious CEO who wants to acquire the game-changing nanochip Derek invented. But when Céron’s sadistic plans for the chip are revealed, what—and who—is Mia willing to do to stop him?

My Wet Hot Drone Summer by Lex Brown is one of the New Lovers, a series of short erotic fiction published by Badlands Unlimited. Inspired by Maurice Girodias’ legendary Olympia Press, New Lovers features the raw and uncut writings of authors new to the erotic romance genre. Each story has its own unique take on relationships, intimacy, and sex, as well as the complexities that bedevil contemporary life and culture today.

Each novella in the New Lovers series is an independent story of about 12,000 – 18,000 words in length. My Wet Hot Drone Summer is a high stakes action-adventure thriller about sibling loyalty, robot studs, and drones that takes the reader to the edge of sexual possibility, making them reconsider what turns them on.

The design of New Lovers pays homage to the classic covers of the books published by Olympia Press. The “soft-touch” lamination and embossed lettering on the front covers of the paperback editions make these novellas a precious edition to any library. Both paperback and ebook editions feature special color endpaper artworks by Ian Cheng.
