The Shousetsu Bang*Bang Museum of Fictional History is pleased to announce the newest addition to our collection: Issue 98. This lurid anthology is a remarkable example of the best smutty queer romance the internet has to offer today. Readers will thrill at the sordid tales and images of history contained within, and at their delightfully sexy conclusions.

Issue 98 joins us as part of the museum’s permanent collection. It can be viewed alongside the rest of our exhibits in perpetuity.

The Shousetsu Bang*Bang Museum of Fictional History is a completely unlicensed, unchartered, community-sponsored no-profit organization. If you love Shousetsu Bang*Bang and believe in our mission, join today! Become a member by reading the issue, leaving appreciative comments for creators, sharing links on social media, and even contributing your own works to future issues. With a little generosity from friends like you, our mission can continue on into whatever the future may (or may not) have in store.

(For summaries, creators’ notes, and more, we would usually tell you to see this issue’s entry on the Shousetsu Bang*Bang wiki. In the interim, however, please visit the relevant Google Doc of contributor commentary for similar content.)
