Alien Sex

19 Tales by the Masters of Science Fiction and Dark Fantasy

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Ellen Datlow, including rare photos from the editor’s personal collection.

From Publishers Weekly

May 01, 1990 – Sex in science fiction is far from conventional: it can take place between humans and extraterrestrials, by telepathy or by proxy. But as this remarkable collection shows, sex in the best sci-fi serves the same purposes as it does in mainstream fiction--exploring and illuminating the human condition. As Datlow, fiction editor of Omni , points out in her introduction, these 18 stories and one poem are `` really about . . . how male and female humans so often see each other as `alien.' '' Some writers adopt a lighthearted approach to the battle of the sexes--Larry Niven's classic look at Superman's sexuality, ``Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex''; Harlan Ellison's polymorphously perverse ``How's the Night Life on Cissalda?'' Others, like K. W. Jeter and Lewis Shiner, take a far bleaker view of human sexuality and relationships. Most effective are Connie Willis's ``All My Darling Daughters,'' a tough look at child abuse; Pat Murphy's ``Love and Sex Among the Invertebrates,'' a melancholic post-doomsday reverie; Jeter's ``The First Time''; and Bruce McAllister's ``When the Fathers Go''--the high point of the anthology--a complex look at love and deception.
