On the technological, decadent world of Proton, someone was trying to destroy Stile, serf and master Gamesman. His only escape lay in Phaze, a world totally ruled by magic.

And if he used any magic at all, his friends were determined to kill him at once!
Piers Anthony is refreshing, hilarious, extremely creative, and I love how well developed he writes his characters. The world of Proton and Phaze are easily imagined given through his writing. And of course, it is easy to get carried along in a story that can be categorized as both science fiction and fantasy.

I don't know, but I think we really should start. It's quite charming, and I feel a certain sense of freedom and inspiration diving back into his various worlds.
