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.

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...more
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.

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.

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

Ok for a freebie.....but not sure about the ending, it didn't make sense at all!!
Surprisingly entertaining. Not as lurid as the title or cover suggest.
It kinda ended abruptly, but was enjoyable enough while it lasted.
Started off good but just lost me at the end 2.5 stars
