About the Author

Piers Anthony, sometimes called Pier Xanthony, is the pseudonym of a Mundane character who was born in England in 1934, came to America in 1940, was naturalized in 1958, and moved to Xanth in 1977. His first story was published in 1963, and his first novel, Chthon, in 1967. His first Xanth novel, A Spell for Chameleon, won the August Derleth Fantasy Award as the best novel for 1977, and his fantasy novels began placing on the New York Times bestseller list with Ogre, Ogre. He shifted from writing in pencil to writing on the computer, and Golem in the Gears was his first novel created on the machine; naturally, the computer found its way into Xanth.

This book is excellent I love how the charactors blended it's sort of a beauty and the beast type of story told the only way Piers could tell it this book is based on one of the co charactors from the last book I love the wy Piers turns the co charactors into main charactors and he just keeps adding new and exciting people and things as well as keeps the old one alive and it's very eciting to see the land of Xanth broaden and get bigger with each book as you'll notice if you check the map this book was fun and romantic if you think a ogre is romantic and it was just an overall good book thank you Piers another great book

This was the first novel-length book I read, back at the relatively innocent age of 13 or so. Xanth became a major part of my life for and continues to inspire. It was something for me not unlike what Harry Potter has become. Ostensibly it’s for children or young adults though the material is universal, especially for the modern world and can be appreciated by people of any age. Anthony’s writing style is nuanced and infused and good humor (and witty puns!)  The half-ogre Smash journeys across Xanth in search of the magician Humphrey and discovers that, perhaps, his question is his answer. This was my introduction to the magical world of Xanth. At the time I was not able to appreciate fully the importance or lasting significance of these books for people crossing that magical and mysterious threshold. The only thing I would change now is to read the books in the order of the series, but this is a small matter.  To the review(er) from March 3, 2011, it's your loss you that apparently didn't actually read the book but  only wrote a cynical review based on very little information -- obviously taken wildly out of context.  Ogre, Ogre certainly made me laugh -- and sob and experience a kaleidoscope of human feelings. I can't think of a more appropriate place for this book than a school library.  I wish for my child to experience the wonder Mr. Anthony provided me. I will be recommending these books to my son -- and all people –- especially of that age though certainly not exclusively. Thank you, Mr. Anthony.
