A HOUSE OF HEALTHY REPUTE... Welcome to Lady Sally's, the House that is a home -- the internationally (hell, interplanetarily) notorious bordello. At Lady Sally's House, the customer doesn't necessarily come first: even the staff are genuinely enjoying themselves. Wife of time traveling bartender Mike Callahan, and employer of some of the most unusual and talented performing artists ever to work in the field of hedonic interface, Her Ladyship has designed her House to be an equal opportunity enjoyer, discreetly, tastefully and joyfully catering to all erotic tastes and fantasies, however unusual. Like her famous husband, Lady Sally doesn't even insist that her customers be human, ..as long as they have good manners. Small wonder, then, that she and her staff encounter beings as unique and memorable as the superhuman Colt, whose banner never, ever flags...Diana, the deadly dominatrix who cannot be disobeyed...Tony Donuts, the moronic man-monster even the Mafia doesn't want to mess with...or Charles, the werewolf with a distinct difference..… (more)

Wears well, if oddly over the years. ( )

Another fun collection of stories from Spider. There's never been a house of ill repute like Lady Sally's House. ( )

Spider Robinson’s book is a lusty, fun-filled romp that is only marginally science fiction since really only the beginning and end have any resemblance thereof. But the book is full of people who are proud to have “carped us some diem.” First-person narrative is one of Robinson’s strengths and his characters jump off the page. I can’t recommend this book enough! ( )

This one was fun, but less fun than the others (and I apparently missed Callahan's secret completely). I set them aside, and moved on to other things. Life is finite. ( )
