I bought this trilogy while I was at University (a fabulous second hand bookshop where you could return other books to count towards new purchases) and I remembered enjoying them at the time. In the intervening years the trilogy has grown somewhat – Piers Anthony has a tendency to keep extending series beyond his original intent.
A great idea, well constructed. Both a science-fiction universe and a fantasy universe in the same book. They overlap and some people can even move between the two worlds. The trilogy follows the main character of Stile as he discovers the fantasy world and his attempts to manage responsibilities in both worlds.
Not particularly challenging or complex in style, but the ideas are all intriguing and well presented, and the pace remains high and the story is fun and engaging.
