The Letter So Far:
Dear Mr. Anthony,
"Just want to say thanks for all of your terrific writing (including all the non-Xanth books). You've given me entertainment that can be read over and again without losing any of the thrill. You are truely a sorcerer destined for a position among the Immortals.
Can't thank you enough." writes Scott Hnatowicz-Warner, remembering a favorite book.
"Thanks Mr. Anthony.. Loved the Xanth books as a child!!" writes Ansley.
| Trojan writes these words, "Letter 1 |
Mr. Anthony? I love your Xanth books. I haven't read any of your others, just XANTH! I love Xanth. I somethymes (always) wish i could be in the books, or meet a character, or at least a character model! Overall, Xanth has so far made a big dent in my small life, and that dent isn't a bad one. I love all your books.
I have an idea for a character. If you haven't already used the name, that is. Charlie/Charles centaur. I just realised that I might just be another crazed fan that really wants to be in Xanth. So you don't NEED to put Charlie in. But if you decide to, his talent is to make dolls become animated or inanimate. Not exactly like Grundy, more like action figures. Thank you, Good Bye.
You have written so many books, I don't know the order. Now I have paid the price for reading two stories, one on the weekends, one on the week.
1. Aw, Umalt isn't real. Too bad.
2. I keep thinking Cube is going to castle roogna and Umalt has the magic pouch! Darnit!
"Thank you so much for many, many hours of fun. I have read all the Xanth novels 3 times. My son hated reading, but had to do it during the summer holidays. I gave him a Xanth book and now he has read all of them and in the process learned the joy of reading. My world would be poorer without your imagination!" writes Rocn_robyn, remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Cortastrophe writes, "Mr. Anthony, I've spent many a day coming up with puns, characters, and talents to send off to you, but I've always decided not to bother you in respect for your work. I first snatched "Castle Roogna" as it sat on my dad's desk in my fourth grade summer. I read the first chapter, and after realizing that I had no idea what was going on, I demanded that my father relinquish his entire collected series to me, which he grudgingly did. Now, in my sophomore year of high school, I have delightfully collected your entire Xanth series so far, the entire Incarnations of Immortality series, and the entire Apprentice Adept series. When I was younger, I read somewhat spuriously, darting from the then-popular Harry Potters to the widely unknown Animorphs, but never finding anything that was really enthralling. After reading my dad's copy of "A Spell for Chameleon" three times (thymes?), cover to cover, I was an unstoppable Xanth-reading annoyance to everyone around me. My teachers were, at first, angry because I'd rather read about Xanth than listen to their lectures, but, as I introduced them to the series (and took a fun little "I-bet'cha-haven't-been-paying-attention" test) they came to accept that my Piers Anthony books would be constantly present in the classroom, which I took to be a minor victory against those close-minded Mundanes. |
As I went through my middle school years, many a tragedy befell my family in the form of accidents and losses. My most distinct memory of those times is when I snatched up my new copy of "Isle of View" so I could escape the anxiety and harshness of Mundania. Now, in high school, my backpack is crammed with books, half of them Manga (japanese comics), and half of them Xanth. For Almost as long as I've been an avid reader, I've been an avid reader of your books. Your writing style is amazing, and oftentimes I find myself aloof to the loud things around me, feeling as if I've been sent along with the Xanthians on their Quests. Thank you for all the adventure, comedy, inspiration, understanding, hope, and puns you;ve given me over the years, and I hope there are many more of those years to come."
"I have been reading your novels for over a decade, being first introduced by a friend who had Castle Roogna on their windowsil, which I stole from them. I was entranced by your writing: how vividly you could describe something so amazing and bring life to imaginary people and situations. Everything seemed to make sense and have a proper fit within its own span of time. Since that first novel, I have strove to find and collect as many of your publications as possible, including all the Xanth series, the Incarnation series, and Adept series, as well as being a very proud owner of your Bio. Though I never pursued being a writer(much to my own dismay), your writing inspried me all through my life, in all forms of my own writing. For that, I am eternally grateful to you, sir." writes Sat(u/r)n.
| Jewel writes these words, "I started reading your books in the eighth grade when I happened upon Centaur Isle in my classroom, and since then I've been hooked. Thank you for creating this brilliant and original series, though I do have a few grumbles about the way vampires are represented in Castle Roogna. Your work is incredibly imaginative and there are almost no continuity errors."|
"When I was younger, probably close to eight years old, my dad was reading one of your novels and I was curious, so I read it after him. That book was Harpy Thyme. Ever since then, I have been reading your books and I love them. I would find myself laughing in class during some of the books and of course people wanted to know what was so funny! Your books got me through some tough times, just in growing up and I still love them. I have re-read many, but am still working on reading, and owning, them all. Thank you." writes Nataru, remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Gwendolynn writes, "I've recently started reading your books and now im addicted. A couple days ago i went on ebay to find some of your books but i cant find the whole xanth series which makes me mad...but untill ifind it ill have to keep borrowing them from lie-berries all over new york. |
keep writing-cuz ur good at it!!! =) =P (="
"(write your thanks here)i'd just like to thank you for so many fun, and exciting novels, i've read all your books and look forward to reading more of them. i reside in the small town of havana, florida, and its nice to getaway in a good fantasy. i imagine that i'm actually there when i'm reading. demetria is my favorite character from the series, i think of myself as a sexy demon." writes Jenny.
| Clio writes these words, "I really love the Xanth books. When my father convinced me to start reading them I was a bit annoyed but now I'm totally stuck. I've gotten to know the land and the characters so good through the books that it almost feels like coming home when I start reading a new one. You rule in making books!!!!"|
"Tamara a thanks for giving hope...:)" writes , remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Andrew writes, "Dear Mr. Anthony. I often day dream about sending you a letter, but by reading your author's notes in the Incarnations of Immortality, I felt it would be rude of me to bother you. Well, now I can finally tell you all that I wanted. You are my favorite author, the first book series I ever completed was Incarnations of Immortality. I am now working my way through the Xanth series, just to see what all the fuss was about. Well, I must thank you,Incarnations has gotten me mostly through high school, considering I read a few of them each year, finishing the last yesterday. Your books are also getting me through my grandma being in the hospital. You see, she had an anerism(pardon my spelling if it s wrong) and is very lucky to be alive. Once again, thank you so much for the gifts you have given me and the rest of your readers, you keep writing them, I'll keep reading them even after you are done. |
-Andrew Bailey, March 15"
"When I was 9, I was diagnosed with cancer and while I was in the hospital, I got some books from a nurse. The first 4 of your books were included, and ever since then, I've been hooked! I love all of the puns and sometimes think for hours on end for ones that I can use. XANTH BOOKS RULE!" writes Laugha_bull.
| bkat~Kyrvin writes these words, "Dear Piers Anthony, |
God, do I love your books! I'm a bit annoyed because I read A Spell
For Chameleon and Source of Magic, plus Castle Roogna by using the
advantages of my mom's and dad's bookstore! But I saw Centaur Isle and
didn't grab it before it got sold (or maybe it's just hidden away in storage
while we close for the winter) but anyways I regret it so much! I can't
find another copy anywhere! I just skipped to the next Xanth book I
could find and continued on in the 'teens! I loved all your books and the
puns in them! Although I'm off on vacation for six months and I've
forgotten the exact titles, I repeatedly reread and read again A Spell For
My dad used to call me Binky after the name Bink (he's still my
favorite character) but I hadn't even known your books existed then. Then I
discovered A Spell For Chameleon and found "Bink" and got hooked on
your books. Like most other things, he thought I would not grow up to like
them and sold all your books, and I wish he hadn't! Now I'm on a
three-year hunt for Centaur Isle and can't wait until I can get my hands on
your next book!"
"At first, i was just reading the first xanth book cause i was waiting for another book series to come out with the next book and i needed another few books to read. After i read the first one, i searched to see if you had a second. After reading the third one, I looked around the web to see how many you had written, and then i realized your 27th book had just come out. I made myself a promise i would finish all of them by the end of that school year. I drove my family crazy dragging them out to the book store but i did it. Soon afterward your 28th book came out and i was soooooo happy. Keep writing the xanth books please. their absolutely amazing. I don't think i've ever read the other book i was waiting for in the beginning, and i know it would never compare to your books. I'm always seeing things in the mundane world that remind me of xanth and all of your puns. keep up the good work and thank you for making the mundane world a little less mundane." writes Robster639, remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Evan (-E!) writes, "Oh man...When I was a kid and read the Xanth novels, my family decided to visit our relatives in Florida...I spent that ENTIRE vacation attempting to hunt down both Piers AND Xanth. Many a phone directory was slaughtered during that vacation. I also have incredible memories of Through The Ice (My first favorite book), and Total Recall. Piers, thank you."|
"(Many years in service of the Christ King)Mr.Anthony after I read Man from Mundania I knew I had entered into a love affair with Xanth. Xanth is place I dreamed of living. Thank you for making each person and their talent individual and original. Thank you for Xanth" writes Jason.
| Kirsybuu writes these words, "Thank you, Peirs. I have enjoyed all your Xanth books that I have read, which is everything up to Harpy Thyme. I'll catch up to you sooner or later. You truly are one of the best writers out there. Well, I'm off to read Geis of The Gargoyle now!"|
"My mother bought me the first three books as a hardbound anthology, and my best friend bought me the second three also as a hardbound anthology... I've been hooked ever since!" writes Steven, remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Warbard aka David writes, "In 1988 a coworker introduced me to a spell for a woman, both pretty and ugly. Actually it was your first Xanth novel. Oddly the spell worked on me, a man. I've been compelled since that day to read all your Xanth novels. Even when the spell was abolished during the time of no magic I was unaware and kept reading to this day (with breaks of course). Keep up the magic."|
"Your writing has brightened the field of SciFi/Fantasy. I am much in awe over your writing. You are clever beyond any other author I have seen." writes Tubamaster.

"Much much thanks from me. One day a few years ago (was it really 6?) I was bored and so I scowered the house for a book I hadn't read, and I found "A Spell for Chameleon". Now I'm hooked and own the first 17 books! ^_^ If I had to go too a deserted (desserted :-P) island and could only bring one book series, it would be Xanth, no question. Thank you!" writes Kelsie_human.
| Mar-iha writes these words, "(write your thanks here)Mr Piers, Ah its seems like only 5 years ago my english teacher actually made us pick up a book and read something for the required reading time at school... One day i picked faun and games up and it was great, I read all the books she had on the shelf after that. When i finished those I began reading everything. Then one day I was taking a stroll in a book store and I saw in bg letters Xanth! And i rememebred my love for these books, i have all the books now in my mini library, so I would like to say thank you for re awakening my love for reading all books, especially inviting us to your world of Xanth! Thanks Man!"|
"This is one series that I enjoy continueally. It is not only enjoyable but it often requires a great deal of thinking to keep track of plot twists and of course, the puns. I hope that there will be even more Xanth books in the future." writes William, remembering a favorite book.

"Mr. Anthony, I come before you with a humble heart, thanking you for years of entertainment by your words. It's because you wrote so many enthralling stories that I began reading a new novel every week. I head to the local library daily, as there are no bookstores within a 40 mile radius, and look for any of your books that I have not read, and I'm proud to say I haven't found any. Thank you for all of your hard work, and I sincerely hope to read the same stories to my own children one day." writes Trust.

"Alas, I am a newcomer. I have only read the first book, and I have fallen in love. My good friend has agreed to let me borrow her entire collection, and I cannot wait.

| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Lifree writes, "Good Sir, |
I started reading your works well over 20 years ago, then hit a lull for about 1&1/2 decades. Now I have re-discovered them and they are the ultimate in relaxation therapy. My daily commute is 4 hours on public/state transportation and they really do make time fly.
Again Thanks for your time and workmanship."
"To Piers Anthony:
| Your_luvin_teddy_bear writes these words, "(write your thanks here)dear mr anthony- i do not know if i fit the regular demographic for readers- however several years ago- i was blessed with a copy of night mare- i told a pen pal about this wonderful author and series i found- she responded by telling me that it was a must that i read them in order- and thus so far i have.incidentally i also LOVE the apprentice adept "trilogy". mr anthony sir you are truely a gift to the world of fantasy. thank you so very much"|
I thank you so much for your Xanth books. They are my life at school, I've nearly exhausted the library's supplies of books, and I even made up a new word in favour of Xanth - Puntastic. Instead of reading other, tiny little short midget books, I read Xanth. On the weekends, I sit in my chair next to my computer and I read. I'm twelve years old, in grade 7, and I don't think I'd survive without the puntastic punny world of Xanth by my side. Thank you SO much for making these books, all of us love them, and I will read them all until I attend the fade-out party." writes Jenny elf.
"I had started to loose interest in reading when I found my copy of "A Spell For Chameleon". Since then I have been unable to put down a single book. Of all the series I am only missing 3. I just want to say thank you for renewing my interest in reading." writes Gangrelangel, remembering a favorite book.
| Remembering time spent reading about Xanth, Blucamelia_kt88 writes, "The first ever xanth book i got was "Zombie Lover" in an old antique bookshop. It was worn n used , until now i just dont know what made me bought it. It might have been the synopsis or the interesting book cover..who knows, But,i'll never regret it in my lasting life. That was the book that sent me hunting for more of Piers Anthony books like The Apprentice Adapt, Incarnations of Immortality Series and so many more.The books took me to a world full of fantasy and unbelievable things , and advanture i've never before dreamed off.. I used to think that fantasy books were a waste of time and only suitable for kids...That's what got me to opened my mind towards fantasy books..It's actually a challenge on how far your mind uses imagination.. And since then,i have learned never to shunned down any fantasy book...And Mr Piers Anthony, i thank you for writing such wonderfull,exciting books...i'm just speechless... The rest off the fans who post out their thank you notes are way far better than me in showing their appreciation... I would just like to add to the fans that..it's not true that our world is like dreaded Mundania.. If you look really carefully..you will find Xanth starring right infront of you.. Its people and authors like Mr Piers Anthony who frequently remind us of that particular place that everyone's able to visit and see... You just need the effort to find it and believe it, in all your heart.... Sincerely forever a Fan of Piers Anthony and many great authors, Blu KT XXX"|

Mr. Anthony, my bookshelf at my house is filled with every single Xanth book published to date. The first full-length book I ever read was Demons Don't Dream (I received it with the Companions of Xanth), and I remember reading it at the doctor's office when I was 8, and making friends with the lady who worked at the counter, AND the doctor herself. Obviously, I can appreciate the humour of the books more now, but your Xanth series was what actually hooked me on the fantasy genre itself. Thank you for providing the world with a beautiful, funny, charming place we all hope to visit someday." writes Alliskin.

"I would love to thank you so much. It is because of Xanth that I kept a happy outlook through my treatment for childhood leukemia. I read all of the Xanth books, more than once in almost all cases, and still want to re-read them. They helped me get out of the boredom of the hospital room, and into a land where things actaully turned out good for good people. Thankfully I am now a survivor of cancer, and off to Hillsdale College. Now I wish I had more free time to read Xanth, and immerse myself in that world, I have only been able to read three of them since I got here, but they help the stress of college.

Anyway, I'll be sure to read some of yourn books as soon as I get a chance, but for now I'm off to download that game. I'm feeling rather nostalgic... I'm pretty sure I remember how to play...

"Thank you for brightening up my dreary existance with your books. Normally I end up laughing so hard that I cannot remember what I have read soon after I finish it, and end up reading the books I purchase or borrow many times insteadof just once. I'm currently looking for a replacement copy of Faun and Games since my dogs destroyed the first one I had. I wanted to dismember them for it, but since it happened in NoRemember I had to let it pass. (cue rimshot) Anyways, I only have to say one last thing, more books please!" writes Xanaphia, remembering a favorite book.

First of all i would like to thank you for the endless hours of pleasure your excellent books have provided.Truly,you have considerably lessened the burden of "dreary mundania" from my shoulders.I used to write under the name of John Cena before,but for some reason i was deleted when the site crashed.I loved your books so much,that after a long time i find myself drawn to the website that offers me a glimpse of the fantastic world you created.I m poor and live in india,so am not in a position to buy your books,i read on hire from a friend.But whenever i read them,i feel as if i m reading about myself.The characters are brought out very beautifully.My final thought is this:-May Allah give you a long life,and may you give us a lifetime of godd books to read.I want to be an author myself,but i know however hard i try,i wont be as good as you.Hope you get even more successes in life.
your enthralled fan;

"I've always loved the books, right from the first page of A Spell for Chameleon all the way to Cube Route(which I might add that we were learning about cube routes in geometry class the day after I got done reading it...thanks for helping me get ahead in geometry). I've really learned alot from your books, even though I think the main point is a cross between comedy, fantasy, and pleasure. For instance I didn't know what the word 'pun' was until I read your books...not to mention random geometry terms. If I had written this to you a while back I would remember my list of puns and such...but as of now I cann't remember any. I do remember my talent idea of having somebody touch a person to make them deaf or able to hear again, and the same thing with blindness also. Anyway...that doesn't matter. Thank you for all of your hard work, from the seventies till now. Your the best." writes Askain, remembering a favorite book.

"I honestly didn't think I liked the Xanth series when I first started reading because it is so unlike any other fantasy book I've ever read. I just finished book 4 and am moving along at about the pace of a new book every 2-3 days. (I do stuff in between too!) I must say, Xanth is a world I've come to love, and Mundania seems so boring now that I mention it. I thank you for your awesome talents and unlimited imagination. I'm sorry to admit, but The Magic of Xanth has become my favorite book series (overriding my original obssession of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.) Don't quit writing! I would be very disappointed and upset if I learned that Pet Peeve is the last book. 29 just simply isn't enough!" writes Khyy.
| Lemuel writes these words, "I love the world of Xanth that you created. I stumbled across your first book, and after I finished it I was glad to later find out that it was a series versus a single book. I'm grabbing as many as I can :D Thanks for a great series and a great escape."|

| autumn writes these words, "Hello
I just wanted to let you know that I am delighted that you decided to continue making books.

| Audrey writes these words, "Your books are wonderful. I admire the way your words flow with ease and create such a magical paradise in the mind. The first book I ever read of yours was 'A Spell for Chameleon', and I have to say that reading your work changed my life. I know that sounds rather dramatic of me, but its true. Your novels opened a part of my imagination that I can never close again. Ever since I started that first novel, which I might add, I only started reading because my seventh grade language teacher threatened to fail me if I didn't actually read the book I was reporting on, I haven't been able to stop my mind from spinning with tales and lands of my own. I next to own my personal library now, all of the Xanth and your various other series included of course, and am happy to be slowly but surely working on my own novels at the moment. I'm up to three now, all a work in progress sad to say, but one day my mind will be in print too, and I can owe many of my thanks to you. Thank you."|

Reading your books have been a pleasure now I am reading xone of contention and I'm loving it. Thanks."|
"Mr. Anthony, I have utilized your books to help my children learn to enjoy reading. My oldest son, now deceased, hated to read. I introduced him to the Xanth series. He got off to a slow start but he got interested and then started to use his own money to get the list of books current. My daughter used to think that all reading was boring. I used your books and the memory of her brother to motivate her into reading as a valid way to spend idle moments. She too contributed her own funds to keep the collection current and to replace some of the volumes that were worn out. I am very thankful to you for writing the Xanth series. I feel that your books should be used in schools to help other children to learn to enjoy reading and to help them build active imaginations. I too have enjoyed reading your various series of books. I started reading them when I was about 15 years old. I am in my 40's now and I still pick them up to read agina and again." writes John.

Thank you for making our lives brighter."|
"I discovered your books during the summer after seventh grade. I was at a neighbor?s house and looking through her books and one of them was A Spell for Chameleon. After taking it home and reading it, I was already hooked onto the Xanth novels. I have not read any other books that have action that flows so smoothly, or such well-written humor. I have also read the Apprentice Adept novels, and am halfway through the Incarnations of Immortality as I type this, and it is a year after my discovery of your books. I cannot wait until the movies come out. They will surely be just as entrancing and magical as your books. Never retire Piers Anthony!

I was bored with reading before I discovered Xanth. To be truthful, I first read Mercycle for a report in the 7th grade and was very intrigued. I discussed it with a friend who told me to read A Spell For Chameleon. Nevertheless, I began reading and have been reading the series ever since. Thank you for giving me a joy in reading and thank you for not stopping writing the stories of Xanth. I cannot wait to read the next book!"|
