Summary (From the publisher):

—An adolescent boy obsessed with sex becomes host to a terrifying power.
—A pair of apparently genderless children baffle science by reproducing.
—Sexually-charged space fugitives read their captors' homoerotic fantasies.

These are only some of the far-out forays into the ultra-erotic worlds of tomorrow, from our most fertile imaginations.
