Astral Liaisons is the second collection of eight short stories from lesbian author and sex-advice columnist Cassandra Duffy. Using a 1950’s pulp comic book motif, the eight erotic romance short stories take part in the rich science fiction tradition of space adventure, time travel, alien invasions, alien abductions, and inter-dimensional exploration. Cassandra has upped the naughty, kinkier side of her stories, represented by her alter-ego Lizzy Dark, including new toys, group sex, and BDSM while keeping the steamy side of her softer sweeter stories represented in the sun sections of the Day Moon Press release.
Each story includes an original art piece created by emerging graphic design artist Katiie♥Kissglosse. The cover was created in a combined effort between Katiie and the author.Cassandra Duffy aka Lizzy Dark encompasses the full experience of living and loving as a lesbian while adding playful humor and some Easter Eggs from classic science fiction, biology, and pop culture set against the backdrop of a sexually rich science fiction setting.
