Oh man, how much do I love Black Sun Rising? Enough to comment!Has he read Piers Anthony? I have this sense that the Bio of a Space Tyrant, Xanth, Apprentice Adept and Incarnations of Immortality series' all make up some sort of gauntlet that any young geek must pass through.
Actually, I hit Anthony first, but the only books available were much, much later in all of the series that you mentioned. I was looking for Xanth, specifically. Half Price is, as you know, a crap shoot.- Ark
I think I have the first book in Xanth somewhere, and possibly even Bio. I'll dig around and if I find it, I'll bring it along.
The Boy says 'thanks.' He really likes the title of 'Bio of a Space Tyrant.'- Ark
COLDFIRE TRILOGY!'nuff said.
And if you liked Coldfire Trilogy I'm sure you'll also love In Conquest Born. CS Friedman rocks!
