Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

The Source of Magic - Piers Anthony Of all Anthony's Xanth novels, I love this one, the second one, the best. [book: A Spell for Chameleon] is also another favorite and was the first ever Xanth novel. But I like this one better because we see Bink on a quest, knowing his unique magic talent, with a group of fellow adventurers, searching for Xanth's source of magic. And when Bink finds it, he does what any self-respecting hero would do - he sets it free - and leaves Xanth just like Mundania - magicless. True to the cliche that "if you love something, set it free," the source of magic returns of it's own accord (or does it?) and Xanth returns to "normal" again - full of outrageous puns and exotic adventures.
