The Science of Love

Short Story Collection

The Science of Love by Carol Anne Strange is a forthcoming collection of short stories, observations and reflections.

From a small town by the English coast to the exotic shores of Zanzibar to the head-spinning vastness of deep space, each story in this collection has its own distinctive mood. Focusing on the rhythms of life, weaving between the ordinary and the extraordinary, love is at the core of this exciting collection.

Spanning past, present and future, each story explores love, loss and longing.

An extract: ‘But what is love? I find it difficult to quantify. Being a scientist, I’ve attempted to dissect love, unravel this enigma and try to understand its mechanics and intricacies, but the explanation has eluded me. Well, of course it has. Love goes beyond sub-atomic particles. It exists but can’t be explained. It is mystifying, tantalizing and, I find, is consuming me in a way that only leads to more questions that can’t be answered. Here I am, tasked with searching for intelligent life out here in the lonely obsidian desert of space – a worthwhile mission, yet my search for understanding the impatient and irrational call of my heart is taking me on a new journey that I just know will blow my science apart with the rays of a thousand suns… It seems simple to me now. To love and be loved: what is more?’ ~ The Science of Love

The writing aims to be bold, curious, and eclectic, inspired by music, art, mood and memories, and the book will feature black & white photographic artwork created by the author.

The Science of Love is close to my heart… an inspired set of stories and observations exploring the essence which connects us all. – Carol Anne Strange
