Sluts in Space was written by Katie Cramer and it tells the adventure of two women with high sex drives who crash land on the wrong planet. They encounter an evil warlord, a captured prince, a devious sexual interrogation device and just enough techno babble to satisfy the space nerd in all of us.
It is hard for me to be unbiased in reviewing this story because this is exactly the kind of story I love to read. The two main characters are the classic duo of a smart sexy girl and the less smart sexy girl. They are brave, mostly competent and more amused by sexual threats than upset. They kick ass and come close to taking it up the ass. It is women in peril where the women rescue themselves.
If I have any complaints, it is that more of it could be science fiction. The names of Stacy and Abigail don’t exactly invoke a brave new world. I was also a bit dissappointed when someone used a Taser when it could have been a stun beam, a gas gun or other high tech babble thingy that stuns. Having said that, the Octogasm was awesome and worth the price of the book.
It is the first book in a series but it nicely episodic so it wraps itself up quite nicely with no cliffhanger. It is short at around 19 pages but it was still fun and sexy. I am looking forward to other installments.
I give it Four out of Five Pam Griers.
