      This was a lot of fun. I got it for free on Kindle for my Droid phone. It may have been shocking at the time it was published, but it is a funny mystery, too, in a way. Why are the Greek Gods on Earth in the 20th Century? What a difference it makes to one's daily life. No wars. Humans in service to the Gods.Forrester, a history professor and acolyte to the Goddess Athena, has women throwing themselves at him at an increasing clip. When he is chosen to become a demi-God for Bacchus, he has to pu [...]

      A local used book store had a shelf of old pulp fiction paperbacks, and I picked this one up on a whim. It was a reminder of why these pulp fiction stories are remembered more for their cover art than for the writing.

      Surprisingly entertaining. Not as lurid as the title or cover suggest.

    4. Jared on said:

      This book is fun and frothy. It's about aliens who think they are ancient gods in modern day New York. If want some light and charming sf that's maybe a little dated, this book will delight.

      Another in the "youth of the 1950s - 1960s couldn't trust ever-so-sexy sci-fi cover illustrations" series.The Greek Gods returned sixty years ago and solved the world's problems. Sure, human development seems to have stopped, but that isn't much of a concern to either our lead character, a priest of Athena, or most others. But he is forced to start thinking about it when he is tapped to be the avatar of Dionysus.Reasonably enjoyable, and Garrett/Janifer did keep me guessing. Some sexy situations [...]

      The title and cover make this book look like a happier 50-shades version of a century earlier Even though the book was without doubt controversial back then, it doesn't come anywhere near explicity. The story is very nicely paced. The writing style is pleasant and funny! The characters, especially the main character, had their own set of personality traits. The storyline was interesting and entertaining, but the genre was yeah, what was the genre?It started off with a typical shortstory telling [...]

      Very silly future world where the gods have come back. In need of a substitute Dionysus, they rope lay acolyte William Forrester in as a demi-god. Being as he had been a lay acolyte of Athena, he' a little embarrassed by how well he gets into the orgy bit of being Bacchus.Which, like, not very dirty scenes, but not "kiss and the screen goes dark" kind of stuff either. You get a nice impression of lots of enthusiastic touching before passions overwhelm into a fadeout. And! Then Forrester goes and [...]

      This ebook which can be found for free in multiple places is sort of a Mad Men meets the Greek Gods meets pulp SciFi. It is a relatively quick read given its short length but still drags a bit because it is a bit silly and you have to make an effort to keep reading Don't let the title scare you off - this is pretty mild mannered stuff. But, if you aren't a fan of old styled pulp SciFi you may want to avoid it even at the free price.

      Not terrible--as pulp sci-fi/fantasy goes. The cover and title give the impression of a more explicit story than we get, but that might be just as well. It's short and there isn't so much a character development as giant leaps in the protagonist's abilities without too much delving into his psyche. And, again, I say that might be as well, because the psyche we see fluctuates between bland and bitter. Eh, it was free.

      Ok for a freebiebut not sure about the ending, it didn't make sense at all!!

    11. Jesse on said:

      It kinda ended abruptly, but was enjoyable enough while it lasted.

    12. NRH on said:

      More a novella than novel I thought this premise and execution attempted to be original and competently handled. I enjoyed it for the coffee table / pulp novel it is.

    13. Frank Shedd on said:

      very amusing the old greek gods have come backand wreck havoc and in some ways make things better for one guy anyway

    14. Lisa H on said:

      A quick read. Interesting idea but not very fleshed out. Also, the title and cover make it seem kind of racy, but there are true Greek myths racier than this story.

    15. Ali Nazifpour on said:

      This book is surprisingly good. The ideas are very interesting and it is worthy of a single read for entertainment.
