It's one thing to go into outer space... but other universes??? Marvelous, horrible, uncanny, and even empty universes???
Wonderlands, wizards, white rabbits, black hats, Lilliputs, Camelots, knights in armor, and even ornithopters.
When two male and two female supremely sensual, unspeakably cerebral humans find themselves under attack from aliens who want their awesome quantum breakthrough, these two dynamic duos take to the skies - and zoom into the cosmos on a rocket roller-coaster ride of adventure and danger, ecstasy and peril.
In Gay Deceiver, their trusty space-time interstellar coupe, Zeb and Deety, Jake and Hilda attempt to search and avoid, evade and destroy the blue-skinned, green-blooded Black Hats who want them vaporized.
