A bond of love is a beautiful thing, but what happens when outside pressures force it into forms both strange and strained. A lovesick youth encounters a mysterious shapeshifter with the ability to take on the appearance of his beloved. A hitman forswears pleasure, but cannot shake the fun-loving angel determined to follow him on his assignments. Two circus performers keep explosive secrets from one another while sharing the trapeze. And an android finds himself malfunctioning under the gaze of his pet human.

Melting Lover explores the shadowy territories of love through Bukuro Yamada’s sweet art and gentle literary touch.

    This is a fascinating collection of speculative fiction stories. As often happens with anthologies, not every story held my attention and some of the storytelling felt a bit uneven, but I thought it was worth reading just for “The Circus After Midnight”. That story does deal with physical and sexual abuse, but handles it appropriately and keeps it implied offscreen. The rest of the stories certainly are a bit on the odder side as far as bl goes, but definitely worth trying if you want more sci-fi or fantasy in your bl.
