did not like it
bookshelves: 1970s, fiction-that-speculates

Within the book's original context of the late seventies, perhaps this seemed more clever than it does now. But, now we have Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, who are much funnier. And don't rely on the cheapest possible puns, and don't write stories geared toward horny middle-school boys. One of the strangest phenomenons in fantasy, and perhaps in all of reality, is that Piers Anthony still sells tons of books. If anyone can shed some light on why, I'd love to hear it.

Eh?Eh! Hey! I like the cheapest possible puns!

As for your questions, because horny middle-school boys are a constantly renewed resource? I mean, every year they grow up but every year there are more of them.
