The Year: 1885, a time of industrial revolution and sexual frustration. The Heroine: Pricilla, a beautiful woman who knows what she wants...and wants it all the time. The Husband: Robert, a scientist and inventor - unfortunately, the only thing he can keep on his mind is his work. Ah, but what does a scientist love more than a problem to solve? Some gears, some springs, the proper appendages, a little extra lubricant, and a little extra love and voila! Chester 5000-XYV is born! Chester is the perfect tool to soothe Pricilla's desires...but what if Chester is more than just a machine? What are the consequences of attempting to engineer love? A sepia-toned delight for adult readers of all stripes, Jess Fink's "Top Shelf" debut reads like a whimsical love-child of steampunk, silent film, and erotic comics. "Chester 5000-XYV": Because sometimes love comes with detachable body parts.
