Poisoned Eros: Mind-bending Tales from the Dark Side of Love

128 pages1 hour


A post-apocalyptic tyrant with a pre-apocalyptic fetish. A restaurant where cannibals can take their dates. An interstellar alien come to lure human victims through her dating profile. A young woman who inadvertently murders her male teachers. These are just a sampling of the outlandish fictions you'll encounter in this collection of short pieces from the delightfully-twisted imaginations of O. A. Beckett and Peter Nemenoff. The stories involve a daring mash-up of genres—science fiction and romantic comedy—and are guaranteed to delight, disarm, and disturb. So reader beware: love may be blind, but Cupid's poisoned arrows hit true to their mark… often with unintended consequences.
