Piers Anthony, the author – thoughts?
I enjoyed his incarnation of immortality series
I found out yeeeaaarrrrssss (like, 20) after I read the “last” one that THERE WAS ANOTHER!!! I still must read “Velvet Cloak”!!!
Wait… there’s another one?
YES!!!! It’s about Death or a Vampire or SOMETHING, called “Wearing a Velvet Cloak”…….THAT’S IT, going to the library today now!!!!!
Oh wow, I might need to re-read all of them now, it’s been so long!
For some reason, I always remember “honey blonde vs wheat blonde” or somesuch being a crucial thing…..yeah, time to get them ALL back in-hand!! (quietly crying that I threw away my snake ring in a fit of rage so long ago…..)
Loved that series too. It was one of my first experiences with interconnected books.
My favorite series to date!!
I love him for a light read, his atrocious puns make it that much more fun.
He’s got some pretty dark/heavy stuff too…..ever read “Firefly”?
That book was very disturbing
No, I read a lot of the Xanth series and the Adept series.
Loved his work when I first read it. Re-read him recently and the writing’s not great and it’s very misogynist, but I still love the plots/underlying ideas.
Yes, he does tend to cast women….in the traditionally stereotyped negative way too often…but I always figured it was just generational/lazy and let it slide (he’s like, what, 84 now?) I’ve never read anything of his more than once, but perhaps…..
Loved him when I was reading fantasy
Love love love him!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially his older books.
I liked his older books.
*facepalm* I’ve never actually sorted his stuff out chronologically, only tore thru one series at a time…..I should see what was printed when to get a better “feel” for him!
I LOVED his older books.
I wish I could find it….the ONLY fan letter I EVER wrote was to Piers Anthony, when I was 44 years old…..and he wrote back to me!!!!! No matter what, THAT was one of the coolest mailbox visits of my LIFE!!
I️ fondly remember our shared Xanth phase.
It’s up to something like 36 books and still going…..
Zach read the first 5, the ones that Sid left behind. **sigh** gotta find the used book store out here….and then go there when he has some money!! He keeps re-reading stuff and it’s making me nuts to see him stalled on a new series he was enjoying!!!
@Jenn PM me your address! I’ll look for them on Amazon 👍🏻
I devoured his Xanth books when I was younger because they were quick, easy reads. I haven’t read his stuff in many years, though
On a Pale Horse is one of my favorites (incarnation of immortality)
As a kid, I found him amusing. Once I learned about his life-long mission to legalize and normalize pedophelia, I became incapable of tolerating his writing.
well that would explain “Firefly”…..seems as though I need to do a little more looking-into here…,.
