Love is not just a single premise. In this collection, multiple award winning authors look at seven versions of love. From Philautia, loving oneself, to Agape with a love for all on earth; and from Storge, a natural fondness for family, to Hysteria, a frantic, obsessed kind of love. Seven authors, seven simple stories, seven concepts of love.

“All seven [stories] score an outright win in the battle to make the ethereal real.” – Country Life
