Issue#8 is all about Love, Sex and Romance. In Experimental Subjects by Cheryl Morgan we see if two abducted humans can find love in space. A mermaid watches clubbers from afar in Where the People Are by Emma Whitehall, a contemporary reimagining of The Little Mermaid. A hero goes to rescue a princess from an ogre, but finds something quite different in Sleeping Beauty by Ian McHugh, and a couple on their third date learn about the magical history of Manchester, whilst discovering more about each other in The Water Museum by Eliza Chan. March's bonus story is Pulse by David Hartley: electronic objects fuse with humans, who are now waiting in line to be fixed in a bizarre yet mundane queue. April's bonus story is Speed of Love by Deborah Walker: love between different species of humans must find its own pace.
