Tiptree-nominated Novelette

What is love? A profound and life-changing emotion, or a heady brew of neurochemicals washing through your brain? Two young medical students take a break from their studies to enjoy a night out at a neuromance palace, where for a mere $40 you can fall deeply in love and out again in a single carefree evening. Here's a romantic comedy about sales techniques, square-dancing, and hormones gone wild.

This story was first published in Asimov's Science Fiction in June 1993, anthologized in Flying Cups and Saucers: Gender Explorations in Science Fiction and Fantasy (1998), and later collected in Strange But Not a Stranger (2002).
