Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0586020926, Paperback)

"The Lovers" is one of the most controversial and groundbreaking novels in science fiction. Sent by the religious tyranny of a future Earth to the planet Ozagen, Hal Yarrow met Jeanette, an apparently human fugitive, hiding in ancient ruins built by a long-vanished race. Un-consecrated contact with any female was forbidden to Yarrow - and love for an alien female was an unspeakable abomination. But Yarrow's lifelong conditioning was no match for his strange attraction to Janette. "Flesh": The starship captain had made the mistake of landing on a forgotten planet colonised centuries ago by believers in ancient pagan rituals. Unless he could escape, he would be made part of a fertility rite which would conclude with a very unpleasant death. "Strange Relations": five novelettes of unbounded imagination telling of strange - and often deadly - encounters between human and alien.
