Piers Anthony könyvei a rukkolán
Piers Anthony - Az emlékmás
Kicserélik a titkosügynök énjét, ellopják és átformálják a tudatát. Csak egyre nem számítanak: hogy a rideg, számító és szakszerű ítélet-végrehajtó gyilkos beleszeret egy lányba. Az utána való vágyakozást elfelejtik kiölni belőle. Az Emlékezet RT.-hez fordul segítségért. Egy Marsra történő utazás emlékélményeit plántálják az agyába, aminek következtében lassan megvilágosodik előtte minden. Azonosulva új énjével, titokban visszatér a Marsra. Gyilkos bandák vadásznak rá. Sorsa megpecsételődött. A titok, amely egyre határozottabban dereng elő tudatából, felismerésre készteti: már nemcsak a saját és szerelme élete a tét, hanem az egész emberi civilizáció léte. Nincs választása: szembeszáll a gyilkosokkal...
Piers Anthony - For Love of Evil
For Love of Evil begins as a touching love story set in twelfth-century France. Parry is a young apprentice and gifted musician; Jolie is a village girl whom he woos and wins—only to lose her to an early and violent death. But Parry survives and prospers; first as a powerful sorcerer, later as a monk, and finally—in this mortal lifetime, at least—as a powerful Inquisitor.
Piers Anthony - Chthon
Chthon was Piers Anthony’s first published novel in 1967, written over the course of seven years. He started it when he was in the US Army, so it has a long prison sequence that is reminiscent of that experience, being dark and grim. It features Aton Five, a space man who commits the crime of falling in love with the dangerous alluring Minionette and is therefore condemned to death in the subterranean prison of Chthon. It uses flashbacks to show how he came to know the Minionette, and flashforwards to show how he dealt with her after his escape from prison. The author regards this as perhaps the most intricately structured novel the science fantasy genre has seen. It was a contender for awards, but not a winner.

Piers Anthony - Omnivore
Three scientists came to the mysterious planet Nacre to discover, to explore, to record. Utterly defenseless, they trekked through the grotesque jungle of multiform mushrooms and dense spore-clouds, hoping to unlock the secret of this strange world. The stunning climax of their mission was just the beginning of a complex drama in which their survival--and return to earth-could spell the extinction of humanity.
Piers Anthony - Well-Tempered Clavicle
For an animated skeleton, kept alive by the Magic of Xanth, Picka Bones has lived a fairly uneventful life. The high points of his day consist of patrolling graveyards with his sister, Joy’nt, and picking out tunes on his ribs with his own collar bones. All that changes, however, when three curious creatures, a dog called Woofer, a bird called Tweeter, and a cat known as Midrange, challenge Picka to discover what magical talent he might possess by seeking out the enchanted princesses Dawn and Eve. But Princess Eve has gone to Hades, and Princess Dawn has troubles of her own. At the ripe age of twenty-one, she is still unmarried, having failed to find a suitable prince who is not intimidated by her power and beauty. When Picka, Joy’nt, Eve, and the three musical pets ask the Good Magician Humfrey for answers to their perplexing problems, he responds by dispatching them on a daring mission—to locate and tame Caprice Castle, a feral palace so errant that even Humfrey can’t determine its whereabouts. For legend has it that the Castle contains the fabled Pundora’s Box, which once contained the worst puns in Xanth, until they were carelessly released a century before.
Piers Anthony - A Spell for Chameleon
Xanth was the enchanted land where magic ruled--where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. That is, except for Bink of North Village. He was sure he possessed no magic, and knew that if he didn't find some soon, he would be exiled. According to the Good Magician Humpfrey, the charts said that Bink was as powerful as the King or even the Evil Magician Trent. Unfortunately, no one could determine its form. Meanwhile, Bink was in despair. If he didn't find his magic soon, he would be forced to leave....
Piers Anthony - Var the Stick
Sol controlled the mountain, and Sos the Empire. No one could calculate the destruction which would follow if they went to war. Var - half animal, half man - rescued from the badlands was the chosen one. Exiled from his own legion, supported only by his courage and skill, he wandered the Earth, fleeing certain death for him and for Soli, the valiant companion he loved more than life itself.
Piers Anthony - Phthor
The return to the caverns of Chthon! The planet Chthon was a prison world of ruby caverns where rebels and outlaws were exiled to endless darkness. Aton's crime was loving a minionette, one of the sensuous woman warriors it was death to touch. His son Arlo was both minion and human. Arlo's destiny was war with the deadliest enemy of all - the very planet Chthon, which was alive and furious at the life forms within its depths. Piers Anthony is the acclaimed author of more than 100 novels and short story collections. His works include the Xanth series, the Mode series, Chthon and Total Recall.
Piers Anthony - Orn
The trio of scientists had been ordered to survey the planet's flora, fauna and mineral resources, and from the very beginning of their mission everything they observed led to one startling conclusion-the mysterious world was virtually identical with the Earth of the Paleocene period, 70,000,000 years ago at the very dawn of the age of mammals! Their names were Cal, Veg, and Aquilon, the most resourceful-and rebellious-of Earth's explorers, and with them came four alien companions, the mantas. Strange flying beings, half-animal, half-fungus, the mantas possessed the keenest senses of any creatures in the universe, a gift which immediately saved the mission from complete disaster. Detecting strong vibrations coming from a great distance, the mantas warned the humans, and Cal realized that it could mean only one thing: an earthquake-one large enough to produce a tidal wave that would totally inundate the small island where they had set up camp. Veg, the strongest member of the team, constructed a crude sailing raft, and the party put out to sea to escape the doomed island. It was the beginning of an incredible series of adventures which would lead them to discoveries as momentous as they were deadly. Sailing for weeks, the raft took them to a region vastly different from the island they had left behind. And when a brachiosaurus, supposedly extinct in the Paleocene period, nearly swamped the raft, they knew they had reached an area of priceless scientific value-an isolated enclave of the Cretaceous period where the full spectrum of the golden age of reptiles was present! But just as incredible as the dinosaurs was another creature they were soon to meet-Orn, a man-sized bird who belonged to the most advanced species ever to develop on this world. Unsurpassed racial memory enabled Orn's mind to reach millions of years into the past, and it was his presence that led the three humans and the mantas to open revolt. Determined to prevent man's destructive exploitation of this world, they must pit themselves not only against the creatures they wish to save from extinction, but also against the all-consuming greed of Earth's powerful authorities. As rich in scientific detail as it is in breathtaking excitement, Orn is a masterwork of the imagination and a tribute to the creative genius of Piers Anthony.

Piers Anthony - Roogna kastély
Millie, Dor dajkája kísértet volt 800 évig. Xanth mágiájának hála, most újra élő, őrjítően vonzó nő. Bármely férfit megszerezhetne magának, akit akar… kivéve azt az egyet, akit tényleg akar: Jonathant, a zombit. Dor, Bink és Kaméleon fia immár tizenkét éves, teljes jogú varázsló, és Xanth trónjának várományosa Trent Király után. Trent úgy véli, itt az ideje, hogy a fiú leckét kapjon az önálló gondolkodásból és problémamegoldásból, amire majd szüksége lesz az uralkodáshoz. A feladat szinte magától adódik: Dor induljon el, és szerezze meg az elixírt, amellyel Jonathant vissza lehet hozni az életbe. A megoldás azonban nem túl egyszerű: Az elixír titkát csak a Zombi Mester ismeri – aki 800 évvel korábban élt, a Roogna Kastély építése idején. Dor visszamegy hát a múltba, egy mágikus faliszőnyeg és egy speciális varázslat segítségével, ahol egy barbár megszálló testében találja magát – szemközt egy rémületes kinézetű óriáspókkal. Később találkozik a 800 évvel fiatalabb, de nem kevésbé elbűvölő Millie-vel, és ráébred, hogy jelenlegi teste egyáltalán nem tizenkét éves… _Xanth földjén új hősök veszik át a stafétabotot, de az előttük álló akadályok semmivel sem egyszerűbbek, vagy kevésbé veszélyesek, mint eddig. Sőt talán még nehezebbek, hiszen Xanth múltjában a mágia még nyers és kiforratlan. Dor azonban ugyanolyan szívós és kitartó, mint az apja… És ugyanolyan hűséges Xanth földjéhez és uralkodójához, aki ezúttal Roogna Király._
Piers Anthony - Blue Adept
In Book Two of the epic adventure that began in _Split Infinity,_ Stile discovers life on Proton and Phaze is getting more difficult.

Piers Anthony - Unicorn Point
The combined magic and technology between the parallel worlds of Phaze and Proton is not enough to save the planets from a conquering invasion. Only Mach and Bane - robot and wizard, linked between worlds - have any chance of stopping this threat.
Piers Anthony - Split Infinity
_Split Infinity_ is the first book in Piers Anthony's Apprentice Adept series. Here two worlds exist side by side: Proton and Phaze. Proton is a science fiction world, where everything works in a logical and scientific manner. Phaze is a fantasy world similar to Anthony's Xanth in that there's no such thing as science - it's all done with magic! The wild plot involves a young adventurer named Stiles who lives in Proton and learns that his "double" in Phaze has been murdered. To solve his own demise, Stiles must travel between the two realities, each abounding with the expected confusions and unexpected plot twists for which Anthony is famous. An artful blending of SF and fantasy clichés and situations, _Split Infinity_ shows Piers Anthony at the top of his ingenious game(s).
Piers Anthony - Varázslat Kaméleonnak
Xanth bűvös világ, ahol a mágia uralkodik. Minden polgára rendelkezik valamilyen különleges varázslattal, amelyet kizárólag ő képes végrehajtani. A kentaurok, sárkányok, baziliszkuszok földje ez. Az Északi Faluból származó Bink számára azonban Xanth nem mesevilág: a benne élők közül egyedül neki nincs mágiája. És ha nem talál magának, méghozzá nagyon gyorsan, száműzik. Humfrey, a jó varázsló viszont meg van győződve róla, hogy a fiú igenis bír valamilyen varázslatos képességgel. Tulajdonképpen egy dzsinn és a bűvös falitábla is egyaránt megerősítette, hogy Binknek van mágiája. Ráadásul ugyanolyan erős, akár a királyé – vagy épp mint magáé Humfrey-é. Vagy mint Trenté, a gonosz varázslóé. De akárhogy is legyen, a fiú rendkívüli mágiájának természetét senki sem tudja meghatározni. Bink teljesen kétségbeesik – ez még rosszabb, mintha egyáltalán nem lenne mágiája… És így is, úgy is száműzik! _A Xanth mágikus világát bemutató könyveknek sokmilliós olvasótábora van, rajongói klubok százaival szerte a világban. A szenzációs fantasy-sorozat első kötete végre magyarul is olvasható. Vigyázat! Függőséget okoz! Még a szerzőjének is…_ _Piers Anthony eredetileg egyetlen könyvet akart írni – ez volt a Varázslat Kaméleonnak. Olvasói követelésére szőtte aztán tovább Bink történetét előbb trilógiává, majd kilenc kötetes regényciklussá._

Now the Evil One was laying a trap to ruin Niobe's granddaughter Luna, who threatened his plans—and he had tricked her son into Hell.

Piers Anthony - Ogre, Ogre
Smash knew all about ogres. After all, despite his having a human mother, Smash was an ogre himself.

So what was he doing here with seven assorted females looking to him to guide them and save them? Even in Xanth, where magic made anything possible, why should Tandy the Nymph trust him and seem fond of him? And how could all that high-flown conversation be coming out of his mouth?
