What People are saying about this

Arlene Germain
An EXCEPTIONAL collection of 14 stories of remarkable and wondrous erotic science fiction. While exploring the spectrum of human emotions, the quintessential hallmark of GREAT STORYTELLING, the various talented authors take the reader on a magical and sensual sojourn. A CAPTIVATING AND COMPELLING reading experience awaits those who dare to venture beyond the ordinary. . . . Well worth the time to enjoy. There is something to satisfy everyone within these covers. . . . A GENUINE GALACTIC JEWEL. . . . Offers an odyssey which will fascinate, excite, and enlighten any reader. (Arlene Germain, Contributing editor, The Crown)
Sheela Ardrian
Works on all three facets: as erotica, as Lesbian literature, and as science fiction. Many of the stories emphasize one or two of those facets over others, but a few manage to balance all three with thrilling results. This is also A FINE SAMPLING OF WORK FROM TODAY'S PROMINENT WRITERS OF QUEER AND SPECULATIVE FICTION. . . . Fans of dystopic science fiction will be especially delighted. This would make an ideal textbook for a class on queer literature or dystopic fiction. GRAB A COPY BEFORE THE FUNDIES SET THEM ON FIRE. (Sheela Ardrian, Reviewer, Fearless Books)
