* Mike Resnick's "Secret Sex" (short story, non-genre)

Probably the worst Lucifer story I've read yet. Set in Delhi & Khajuraho, both in India. I found the humor in bad taste. Facts are generally right, but interpretation wrong. And a couple of plot elements are utterly incredulous - someone lending an elephant to a stranger, e.g.! I am not sure this is the India western audiences expect or believe, but I cannot identify with it & I've lived here all my life. Title is corruption of "secret sects" as the phrase passes through men speaking different languages.

Collected in.
