I saw a new Xanth book out 'Airs Apparent' I believe is the title. (well new to me who just recenly emerged back into real life, hehe)

I love Piers Anthony's Xanth books too. I actually got into SciFi before fantasy.

Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov were the two I started with. I don't remember what fantasy was my first.

I learned about fantasy literature when I was 12 years old (in 2000) - I was in a bookstore and got my hands on "The Seeress of Kell", the final book of David Eddings' Malloreon quintet.

Since then fantasy literature has been my favorite genre - I think I've read over 300 fantasy books in these past 10 years.

Dave is my favorite author - I find his stories amazing despite the self-plagiarism (besides, his dry and snarky humor is simply perfect)... and well, he was the one that introduced me to fantasy in the first place. It's really too bad he has passed away - he seemed to be a nice and funny man in real life.

My first introduction to sci-fi occurred at the age of three, watching Star Trek on my father's lap. It is one of my first memories, actually.

Though, I thank Janny Wurts for the first, crucial step into reading science fiction. When I was 10 years old, my uncle loand me three worn, dog-earred books with the words, "This genre is long overdue for you, young reader." Those three books comprised the Cycle of Fire.

A week of sleepless nights ensued before I reluctantly returned the books to my uncle, read from cover to cover. He then loaned me, "That Way Lies Camelot". I can never thank him enough.

Nor can I understate my gratitude to Janny Wurts for the wonder inspired by those books and the books that followed.
