Oh, Venus. Doesn’t that just roll off the lips like a lover's kiss?
What image does it draw to your mind? A great planetary body of deadly gases neighboring Earth, existing as its own world, mysterious and alluring? Or an image of a more fantastical nature, such as the jungles described by Edgar Rice Burroughs?
Or do you think, perhaps, of a goddess who holds power and beauty beyond measure, whose name, throughout the ages, has been synonymous with love? Perhaps you imagine something in-between, with adventure and romance. Love, of any kind, has the power to bring the magic of the gods into the events of men.
Within this book, you will find tales of wonder, some of space, some of the heart, some that follow in the footsteps of the goddess herself. Listen, and be enchanted!
These are the stories of Venus: tales of the planet, of the goddess, and of love.
