Piers Anthony is one of my favorite authors. I started with the Xanth series (my sister gave me the first couple out of the series) I read everything I can find by him. I am a major sci-fi/fantasy fan. Thanks to Piers, so are my children, and their children...(I'm 60) I am also very fond of Steven Asprin, Steven King, Anne McCaffery, Anne Rice, Mercedes Lackey, Douglas Adams.....well, I could go on listing, but you get the picture, lol. I also re-read the major series over and over. No matter how many times I read them, I get something new and more in depth each time.
