  • Wow, not asking for alot are you? LOL

    Piers Anthony is PURE GENIUS.

    As a HUGE Xanth fan I can first reccomend his OTHER fabulous series.

    Apprentice Adept

    Bio of a Space Tyrant

    Battle Circle

    ChroMagic series

    Cluster

    Geodyssey

    Incarnations of Immortality

    Of Man and Manta

    Mode

    Pornucopia

    All of which have three to eight books in their series.

    My favorite being the Apprentice Adept series.

    The only other series of fantasy/science fantasy I can recomend of his quality is of course, The Lord of the Rings, the Harry Potter series.......

    And Anne McCaffrey with her Dragonriders of Pern series (around 33 books in the series).

    But I think Piers Anthony WILL keep you busy for awhile.

    The Case Of The Toxic Spell Dump by Harry Turtle Dove and Leslie Fish. Then there is Jack L. Chalker. If you have read both of these and this is not a wag question then would suggest Tom Holt.

    If you have read all of his books then try Alan Dean Foster's Spell Singer Series. If that too then Robert Asprin.

    Source(s): suggestions.

    Robert Aspirin

    Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy

    I moved from Piers to read The Dragonlance, Raymond E Feist, and George R R Martin (he takes some getting used to)

    You could try Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman for funny fantasy.
