Macnacious | 1 comments I am looking for the title of an unusual Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Erotic Book from 1978-1982. It was unusual in that the book was quite sexually explicit for its time, and yet it was featured on the Sci-Fi shelves of various mainline bookstores for several years. However, it is fair to say that the Sci-Fi / Fantasy aspects of the book overshadowed the eroticism. In any case, I did not come across another book in that era that was so explicit, and yet occupied the general Sci-Fi shelves.

The plot seemed to be about a Biblical apocalyptic setting (?). The most memorable story arc in the book centered around a group of people (demons?) capturing a young woman (virgin?) and taking her to a convent, possibly in order that the apocalypse be staved off. The young woman was interrogated and physically probed (possibly in regard to virginal status?) by the Mother Superior, while the Bishop watched from a concealed location. I do not remember how it ended.
