This collection of futuristic, erotic romances with a gay male spin will warm your heart and arouse your mind and libido; within its pages, love truly knows no boundaries.
Science Fiction is tricky. Throw lust in the mix and it becomes trickier. Add in budding, strictly-male love affairs and the narrative begins to defy gravity - which, in this case, is the conventional sentiment that romance is purely for the heterosexual.
"Impressed" by Maura Anderson takes Hawaii from its days as a sailing hub to a seedy airship port full of opium dens, illicit pleasure clubs and press gangs that can be bribed to impress just the right man -- for a price. In "Omakine" by Ralph Greco, love - or at least lust - can happen between two species...as can prejudice. In Michael Mandrake’s story "Longing for a State of Vertigo", one man’s quest to find love ends up being a heavenly experience. "The Universal Language" by Kiernan Kelly details how Mishau’s life is spent battling nature and struggling for survival, while Kurt’s world is far more technologically advanced, but when circumstances throw two very different men together, they quickly realize that lust is a language understood by everyone. The Test by Sascha Illyvich has one lover regretting what he did wrong with his life until he’s seduced by someone very special.
