Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities

$49.95 buy

Inspired by Kepler’s quest for earth-like planets, Strange Attractors envisions the
sexualities of beings that may some day be encountered—if not in outer space than at
least in our dreams! Strange Attractors includes the work of 70 artists, writers and filmmakers who have created remarkable explorations of possible extraterrestrial life forms and their multifarious sexual desires.

A joint publication of Encyclopedia Destructica and The Institute of Extraterrestrial Sexuality, Strange
Attractors straddles the line between speculative scientific exploration and artistic imagination.
