(The eighth book in the Relationships series)
A collection of stories by Piers Anthony
This is the 8th volume in an ongoing series!So what do we have this time? A story about an android in the form of, yes, a beautiful woman, who achieves consciousness and makes the most of it, to the dismay of the company boss. Another of a mother who means to repay a significant favor a boy does for her son, off the record. One of a rather unusual stage show that may freak you out. That's "Power of Pizzazz," and if you don't care for aberrant sex, stay clear of it. One of an ill woman who, faced with Death coming take her life, instead seduces him. And their daughter, ambitious to take over that job. Three-party love in virtual reality. A skeptic takes on the sexy mistress of Hell. An alien woman faced with bad trouble makes an unlikely deal with an alien enemy man. Twins crafted in a laboratory grow up to be quite special, as they are shape-changing geniuses. And a boy's imaginary friend turns out to be more than he bargained on, leading into a possible change in the way the world operates. If such notions bore you, maybe you can get your money back for this book so you won't have to read them. I never promised you an alien rose garden.
