Probably far more risqué when it was new, this is still a lot of fun. The most notorious women who ever lived are presumed to be a social club in Hell, and they get together to tell the real stories behind their legends. Eve, Salome, Cleopatra, and more. The Art Deco line drawings are gorgeous. ( )

Fantasy of history's most [in]famous wicked women, who get together in the infernal realms and swap gossip. Among those present are the usual suspects: Helen of Troy, Cleopatra, the queen of Sheba, Lucrezia Borgia, Delilah, Salome, Sappho, Thais, and others. Great quasi cheesecake front cover art of some of title characters in the style of Ray Johnson's art for Dell 414 (Cleopatra's Nights).
"Naughty, but still quite funny." -- from a Chicago Trubune review of the original edition.
