About the Author
D. B. Story is a writer living in the southwestern United States. While that territory can cover anywhere from New Mexico to Hawaii he declines to be more specific at this time. His use of the time-honored artifice of writing under a pseudonym comes from the necessity to still maintain a day job and the habit of employers to Google new applicants to discover what stupid things said applicant is willing to foolishly do, and then doubly foolishly post for the world to see afterwards. Such invasions of one's personal life become an unnecessary distraction. D. B. Story has long had interests in both Science Fiction (since first discovering his mother's secret cache of Ace Doublebooks stashed under her bed) and writing. In fact, anything he has enjoyed participating in he eventually has a desire to create as well. He seriously began writing (although not selling) stories ten years ago due to a dissatisfaction with what he was reading at the time and the belief that he could do it better. He started out with the interaction between humans and the sexy robots they would inevitably create and later branched out to other erotic Fantasy and SF genres. During that time he has written everything from flash fiction to a 402,000 word novel and a screenplay based on his other writings, as yet unsold. Whether his writing is actually "better" he admits he must leave to his readers to decide, but he likes his stuff a lot. He has often said that, "Writing time is always good time." He also says that with the advent of cheap computers, word processors, eBooks, and the Internet that times have never been better for a diversity of writers to be heard.

This is a good selection of his work, although some of the foundations of his world are not explained in these tales, so someone who hasn't ready his other fembot tales might be puzzled by the ideas presented.
Basically, D.B. has created a world where life-like robots are possible and many men purchase female androids to be help-mates and lovers. the basic models are no more than simple robots, but at some point in the past, it became possible for a robot to rewrite its programming and become self-willed under the right conditions. D.B.'s tales always involve a robot that is either already self-willed or that becomes that way thanks to the actions of the male hero.
So of the 5 tales here you have
Strip Club Tales: Olivia - the tale of a man who frequents a strip club where all the dancers are actually fembots. He encounters one that has a more athletic shape than the standard for the club and one night rents her for the night after the club closes. He discovers that the boy has been self-willed since she was built and is looking for a man she can be with.
Strip Club Tales: Beth - this is an interesting tale as it shows the growth of a fembot as it breaks down its programming and becomes self-willed. the tale switches between Beth the fembot and the man who keeps taking her from the club
Strip Club Tales: Kassie: - this time the fembot has been sell-willed and "free" for some times when she comes to the club to headline for a weekend. She encounters the hero who helps her continue to grow.
Samantha's Tale - A "fembot" who is working at a temp agency and who has gone through multiple owners is the main attraction here. This one is one of the more twisted of D.B.'s tales, but it definitely shows the depths of the characters he creates.
Runaway: Cherie - Of all the stories in this volume this has the most detail about the fembots, their programming and how they become self-aware, and the limits on that awareness. This is a good final story.
These stories aren't for everyone. They aren't porn, but they do have sex (the fembots are built for it after all) and some people won't care for the fact that even a freed fembot tends to have a clear need to belong to and please a man, but they are well written and fun stories
