In the shadows, behind the scenes of the world you know, exists a secret world of professional domination and submission. All over the world, there are men who love men, who also love pain and discipline. Some are masters; some are willing slaves. Others… not so willing. One thing they all have in common is a desire to seek others with their inclinations, to seek respite and satisfaction among the society of masters. The Society of Masters is an overlapping, multi-author universe exploring the men of this world.

In the world of The Society of Masters, major “players” include:

* The Masters’ Circle is an exceptionally discreet English gentlemen’s club, with members placed in the highest positions in British government and society.
* The Company is an American criminal cartel, supplying prostitutes to rich men and women with exotic tastes and hardcore fantasies.
* Diadem is a fetish club and pornography studio.
* Manse is an exclusive gay nightclub where the Doms and subs come out on Saturday nights.
