Welcome to the world of Weird Science, the strange marries with gay romance to produce eight stories that combine humor, the paranormal and love.
Doctor Tentacles and the Pheromone Incident by Liz Brooks shows Carter playing the mad scientist, Dr. Tentacle, but no one draws his eye — or his nose — like the new intern, David. In Frog, Kiernan Kelly presents George, a college student with a brilliant mind. When a cutting edge experiment goes wrong, he’s left with an unusual result that tests the strength of his relationship with his lover. In Aidee Ladnier’s The Applicant, Dr. Forbes Pohle knows interviewing lab assistants can be a tedious process — luckily the malfunctioning robot bear in the other room helps liven things up. Meanwhile, in Kevinium by Diane Sheridan, Matt lusts for hunky housemate Kevin, who sees Matt only as a buddy. Then Kevin invents a new gas that has surprising sexual side effects.
In Test Subjects by M. Durango, An ESP project introduces grad student Evan to sexy professor Marcus, but an equipment glitch may lead to more than they bargain for. GS Wiley gives us Love Potion 3.5, where diner cook Tony loves Marilyn Monroe and his Chrysler New Yorker, but can’t figure out why he’s a flop with chicks until scientist Frank moves in downstairs. Jade Astor’s A Meeting of the Minds, finds Dane, a neuroscientist, studying ESP when he meets Jesse, who claims to be psychic, and seems to know exactly what is on Dane’s mind. Wrapping up the anthology is Bronze by Alexis Hall, where a shy watchmaker turns his talents to the creation of an ideal lover, but where does love begin and programming end?

Doctor Jacob Tavers is a young, respected man in a picturesque Puritan village–who has a string of dark secrets. Jacob has been keeping his true nature under wraps for most of his life. Taught herb lore by his mother and medicine by his father, Jacob walks a fine line–one that threatens to snap when a neighbor accuses him of witchcraft.
To make matters even worse, the Inquisitor is Marcus Swan, whose deep blue eyes and fine legs are making it incredibly difficult for Jacob to hide his other secret: a deep attraction to the man who has been sent, in all likelihood, to kill him.
