Piso and Syra are friends, but is it more than that? Sextus and his non-binary friend, Valens, help Piso understand his new feelings, how to express them, and how NOT to express them! This is a story of desire and discovery. Could it be love?
In sitne amor?, the Pisoverse characters are getting older in their world. This novella picks up on perhaps one of the most mysterious and powerful emotions—love. Ancient Romans and other Latin writers have been obsessed with the topic for centuries.

||Lance Piantaggini, also known as Magister P: "Love is complicated, relatable…timeless. Perhaps that’s why my students requested a love story among their top choices for a next novella. This love story takes a lighthearted, comical turn. Piso crashes and burns, falling flat on his face, and deals with all the feels of a young adult. A tale, therefore, that includes all the blunders of someone trying to figure it all out for the first time, perhaps not unlike many Latin students!"
