"RAIN IN THE DOORWAY is Smith's other masterwork. Snatched into an adjacent dimension where all women are willing, work is a joke, and booze flows like water, Mr. Hector Owen finds himself partner in a firm reminiscent of the establishment run by the Marx Brothers in The Big Store (1941). Accidentally forced to return to our own sorrowful, rain-drenched world, Mr. Owen manages to retain the company of his new girlfriend, who promises to brighten even this vale of tears." - Paul Di Filippo in Pringle, ed., St. James Guide to Fantasy Writers, pp. 532-33.
