Piers Anthony addendum

January 26th, 2010 (06:28 pm)

It was pointed out to me in comments that, what I had remembered as the most horrifying thing Piers Anthony had ever written was, in fact, totally not the most horrifying thing Piers Anthony had ever written.

If you want to see more information, go check the original post (or here, on Dreamwidth), to which I made an addendum. Jesus fucking Christ on a tequila bender.

Is the trend in his fiction creepy? Yes.

The deal with Letter to Jenny, is it creepy... not to me. I was at the convention where he met with Jenny.

I don't think that he's a pedophile, but I do think he needs to think about what the heck his id has been spewing out onto the page.

As for Barn, it's supposed to be horrific.

WTF? (also - How...?")

I read the original article. He's a name I remember from my early "Read Anything with Rockets or Unicorns on the Cover" days. And, I find it just plain disturbing. How the hell did he slip through the net? What were people thinking? Or does this represent some literary trend from the pre-enlightened post-liberation period? I seem to recall other writers hinting that incest etc was OK. Was it just that it was hunting season for taboos?
