I have read so many Xanth books that they make my head swim LOL
I have also read Pierce's biography it's very interesting...he is quite the character
If you get a chance read his incarnations of immortality series it is awsome....
OMG, this is sad when I am the last person to post for this INCREDIBLE author in like 4 months!
Come on ppl, we all know we are talking about a great old dude! I'm sure he'd love the name
Before you ask, I have read all of the Xanth's todate, all 7 Incarnations of Immortality (every one several times... I love that series!), the Shame Of Man series (I forgot the actual series name), Firefly, and whatever other books I can find by him. Haven't read the Phase books, tho. Only so many hours in a dat
LOL actually Piers himself termed himself an Ogre
Yes, I love the puns and wordplays.....one reason he never runs out of ideas for these things is because his fans keep sending him more to use in his books.
According to him he has so many that he is not sure he will ever get to use them all LOL
I didn't get the Adept books, unfortunately, because the book store I frequented never carried them (except for one... Out Of Phaze). However, I sure liked the Mode series... and I was sad when it never finished... or maybe I need to hit the library!
I really went off Piers Anthony after about the sixth Xanth book, when I was heartily sick of the same old crap again adn again. Apart from the Xanth series, though, I really enjoyed some of his stuff, particularly Prostho Plus. It's the only book of his I consistently recommend to people.
I've read two Piers Anthony novels: If I Pay Thee Not In Gold and Firefly. I enjoyed both books, although I view them purely as entertainment, although I will admit that on occassion he throws out a gem of a thought. He has a great imagination.
Of the two books that I read, If I Pay Thee Not In Gold was my favourite, and Weyr...well....rawr.
I'm interested in reading the Incarnations series. I've heard a lot of good things about those. Also, the synopsis for the Geodyssey series is very intriguing to me.
Ive read the first 5 Xanth Novels by him , thought them to be wonderfully entertaining but had no desire to read any more. Ive read his Novels Cthon and Pthor both great reads but vry leak reads. Ghost is an excellent and very underrated novel.
