Piers Anthony Guest Blog - Special 3 Day Sale!

Many folk speak disparagingly of horse opera, which surely bears little relation to the historical exploration of the American West, but is entertaining on a superficial level. Similarly they sneer at space opera, which is horse opera translated to space. Bat Durston jumps into his spaceship and warps to Planet X where humanoid monsters are terrorizing the colonists. He whips out his blaster and goes after the monsters. Bang bang, you're dead. The colonists are grateful.

Okay, I have trouble doing anything conventionally, so when I set out to do space opera, I started from the plight of the Vietnamese and Haitian Boat People in the 20th century, so that was my historical basis, and went from there. The refugees in the space bubble encounter the same sort of pirates and most are brutally slaughtered. But a few survive, one of whom is Hope Hubris, who goes on to become a naturalized Jupiter (America) citizen and finally comes to rule Jupiter. He is the Space Tyrant, in the sense of one-man rule, not evil. It's a pretty wild and gritty and often sexy adventure. Critics never liked it, being too dull to understand what I was doing, but readers, being smarter, loved it. Why don't you sample it and see what you think?

The complete Bio of a Space Tyrant series is on sale at Amazon for Kindles this weekend through Monday from my new publisher Premier Digital Publishing. The first book is FREE and volumes 2-6 are only $.99. Can't beat that.

  2. I'm a Kobo owner, any chance of you bringings Premier Digital Publishing works to that platform? 7 million users and growing on Kobo, so there's a market there.

  3. Looks good. I also write Westerns (my fantasy is usually in a desert setting), but they are less horse operas and more modern Westerns. ;-)

    Anyway, I am glad to seeing some bits of the genre come back.

  4. Modern westerns have also been my mainstay also. But the space westerns mentioned sounds like the movie Cowboys vs Aliens with Harrison Ford. The old Clint Eastwood and John Wayne movies still hold true.

  5. I hope you update again soon!

    You're my all-time favorite author, and I hang on your every word like a love-struck schoolgirl.

    (uh, never mind the fact that I am still a schoolgirl.)
    I'd love to hear more than what I get at your newsletter.

  6. I just picked up a sizeable stack of xanth books today that I loved when I was a young. (Crewel Lye yes!) Xanth is what made me fall in love with the fantasy genre in the first place.

  7. Piers, it's been a long tome since your last post. Please tell us about your health and that of your wife. We all want to hear that both of you are doing well.

  8. Some years back I sent a letter to you and you wrote back. The letter was returned to you because something was amiss with the address. Rather than tossing it, you phoned (Florida to Calgary, Canada! Before long distance plans existed!) to check on the address. As it happened, I was at work, but my nephew (also a big fan of yours) was home and got to talk to you. I was so-o-o jealous when I got home and he told me! I am now beginning to self-publish my own fantasy and sci-fi novels and am fascinated and enjoying the whole process. You have been an inspiration to me and I just wanted to thank you.

  10. Hi Piers, love your books, and would like to purchase your ChroMagic series for my Kindle, but currently the first and fifth book are not available in that format, which means I'm at a stalemate, not wanting to get a hardcopy/ebook mix, and so instead of buying five books, I'm left with none. Hope you can fix this oversight soon, to both our benefits.

  11. Ah, Too bad this is so old. I doubt you will ever read it. I loved bio, when I read it. Fabulous set of books. I particularly loved the Pete Seeger Songs that they sing to/for each other (I figured Pete Seeger because nearly all of the songs are his standards, and many that were not written by him had his Revisions in the words (Joe Hill specifically)).

  12. bio was awesome, and was my quickest reads by far, P.A. is the best writer EVER EVER EVER IM 42 and grew up on him, and got threw school with my growing love for reading after the 1990 i stopped reading so much as work and college kicked my ass, then video games took center stage, but im back, xanth has over a dozen new books WTF what did i miss and maybe 1 more bio of a space, ohhhhhhhhh i cant wait,, and a new adult fantsy whatttt xanth wasnt adult?? i learned most of my sex dos and donts from these books...
