Piers Anthony, one of the best selling writers of science fiction and fantasy, displays all of his literary virtues in "Reality Check," a magnum opus of why Anthony is more than an entertaining writer. He is an important writer.

This novel builds bridges between generations as it builds them between worlds. There is a quality here of classic Heinlein. The main characters face the unknown with courage instead of fear. Encountering the fantastic makes them think better instead of not thinking at all. "Reality Check" is a celebration of life, and a love story between grandparents and a granddaughter, between cousins, and between friends. Most of all, "Reality Check" is the first novel to fully explore the impact of the internet on the American family, albeit in science-fiction terms.

About the Author:

Piers Anthony is the acclaimed author of more than 100 novels and short story collections. His works include the Xanth series, the Mode series, Chthon and Total Recall. Realty Check is an original novel sure to delight Anthony fans everywhere.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the second Anthony novel due out in May (see Muse of Art, reviewed above), an elderly couple, Penn and Chandelle, rent an expensively furnished house in Philadelphia for a vacation getaway. It turns out that the building is not only luxurious but allows its inhabitants to travel through time and space by simply walking out the back door. The couple invite their wild granddaughter Llynn, 15, to help them explore the houses wonders. They are soon joined by Llynns obnoxious, bright cousin, Lloyd, 13, and his dog. Then the adventures really begin: saving damsels in Moscow and communicating with aliens are two of the highlights. Considering its jolly, familial tone, the novel contains a surprising, and occasionally disconcerting, amount of sexual tension. Overall, however, this is an intergenerational as well as intergalactic charmer, hallmarked by fast pacing, strong characterizations and skillful prose. (May) now publishing original and reprint trade paperbacks on paper (with the books also available online at www.pulpless.com.) Other original May Pulpless.Com titles include The Land Beyond Summer by Brad Linaweaver, Other States of Being by John DeChancie, Book of the Monk by D.K. Kirts, The Microbotic Menace by Victor Koman (the first in his new Captain Anger series) and The Robert Heinlein Interview and Other Heinleiniana by J. Neil Schulman.
