Summary

Our fantasy and sci-fi correspondent Will Friedle returns! And he’s picked a doozy for us to read.
Piers Anthony has written dozens of hugely popular fantasy novels, and many of them are set in the magical, pun-filled land of Xanth. Will asked us to read A Spell for Chameleon, the novel that began it all.
And boy, has it not aged well…
We thought Sweet Valley High was rapey. There’s literally a rape trial in the first 30 pages of this book, which seems aimed squarely at 12 year old boys.
Join us for this hilarious and disturbing episode, as we marvel at what was acceptable for kids to read 30 years ago.
