The Orchardman is a dystopian tale of male pregnancy (mpreg) and childbirth. It takes place in a setting very much like Children of Men or The Handmaid’s Tale, where infertility causes society to collapse. If you’ve read the Daddy’s Boy/Appalachian Bred series, you know about the Monachee, a clan of hill folk whose men can conceive and bear a child. The Orchardman follows Shep Boone, a Monachee from the Virginia hills. When he is kidnapped (along with all of his kind), he is imprisoned in a hospital whose sole aim is to produce offspring for the wealthy helmsmen. This bizarre work of fiction was found among Peter’s personal files, kept under his bed.
The Longshoremen is a different kind of mpreg story. Ralph is a two-spirit, born with both genders. He chooses to live as a man, but he longs to be with another man. When he meets Alec Shore, an enormously gifted longshoreman, they fall in love. Ralph discovers he is pregnant. He struggles to navigate the uncharted waters of male pregnancy on his own.
