When I read "mind-blowing orgies" in the 70's, I assumed Collide contained some element of sexual adventure. So I was surprised to find that the story had much more in common with a traditional male/female romance. COLLIDE is a well-written and fascinating tale of the relationship that develops between Emm and Johnny on two levels. In present day, he is the older artist and former B-movie star who catches her attention. In the fugue states she falls into as a result of a childhood brain injury, he is the you young, passionate, and lost Johnny of the movies. I really liked Emm and Johnny together, past and future. I enjoyed to "time travel" element and the uncertainty about what was really happening to Emm. The story had strong erotic elements, though orgies were only implied ;-)
