Harlan Ellison, Richard Christian Matheson, Connie Willis, and many more contribute to a compelling psychological exploration of the many shades of love.
An incubus disguised as a high school girl puts a disturbing spin on the teacher/student fantasy. An engineer creates a robot with unexpected consequences during the end of the world. A man becomes the pet of alien invaders. From stories of aliens in other worlds to those living among us, these tales will move you out of your comfort zone and open you up to experiencing something - or someone - completely different.

Not for the Faint-Hearted
Unusual and engaging, sometimes creepy, somtimes disturbing, these stories none the less hold one's attention. Very interesting.

An odd but entertaining read
Not what I expected from the title. There was more mind f***ing being done by the authors than the physical kind being done by the characters. It held my attention.
My low score for performance was because they completely butchered “Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex” by reading all the footnotes at the end of the story rather than in-line. If you are not familiar with the story, the finial collected footnotes make no sense.
