The Felliverse

The Dr. Fell series started as one short standalone story, "Pet Sitting."  They run from the 1990s when Dr. Fell was in college to the present day.  Several stories were published later on in the series that looked back at the characters and their earlier lives, and are intended to be enjoyed with the benefit of hindsight about the characters. “The Ivory Dungeon”, “Back in the Day”, and “Huckleberry” all happen before the “official” first Felliverse story, “Pet Sitting”; however, I think they are best enjoyed after the events in the Complete Dr. Fell volumes one and two.

he Complete Dr. Fell Volume One: Lost 

Homeless after his mother's funeral, John Fell can't stop mourning his murdered lover, Rob, and he clings to his goal of fulfilling his and Rob's dream of completing his PhD to become Dr. John Fell. Looking after his best friend's sub, Charlie gives him the resources to write his thesis and fight his homophobic father for his inheritance. John retreats to his cabin in the woods, but pet-sitting Charlie has shown him a new path. Putting aside his doubts, he finds solace in helping boys learn to serve their owners, and for owners to be worthy of service. Dr. Fell's poverty, pride, and loyalty to Rob hinder his quest for a new boy, but his sense of duty can't let him walk away from someone in need. Forced to confront his responses to abuse and neglect, dispirited by the imperfect relationships of his fellow tops and their subs, and struggling to make ends meet, John gives up the academic dream that sustained him through the lean years with Rob. Time and again, Dr. Fell is drawn back into the outside world by boys in need and by the irrepressible Charlie, who just won't let him be. The center of a growing circle of family and friends, John slowly returns to life. But is all that enough to help him find his 'forever boy'? Will John Fell, PhD, be smart enough to let his past go and make a new future for himself?

The delicate balance he manages is rocked when he is confronted with new information about Rob's death. His reaction could jeopardize everything he has so painfully reclaimed.
