i'll quote him from his Jamboree (January) Newsletter

"Amazon seems to be removing incest-related erotica titles from their store and Kindle. That is their right. But where will it stop? Someone is bound to object to anything that is published. Censorship starts with egregious examples, then spreads as certain folk try to control the reading habits of other folk. Award winning books can get banned. It is, ultimately, a power trip by prudes. I say, if you don't like incest, don't buy or read such books; let the market decide. But don't try to tell others what they may or may not read. How far can it go? I understand that in some countries the Bible is illegal. There is, after all, incest therein."

.I'd like to think my brain isn't as perverse as Piers, but what he says I believe as well. Wouldn't be surprised if Piers has a few titles with incest there in either.

Also RIP John Dye (Andrew, Touched By An Angel)

EDIT: OMG Anne Francis DIED?!?!
It's like they released Forbidden Planet on Blu-ray and then... Leslie Nielsen died in November, and now Anne Francis... T________T

Warren Stevens who played 'Doc' is still alive, he's the only remaining member of the "Triad" - Captain, Commander, Doctor... gods... that sounds familiar... oh yeah! Star Trek TOS, yes Forbidden Planet came first.

I'm really sad to know about these deaths, so many actors that I loved. :(

Awwww man... I didn't know about Leslie Nielsen until I read your post. :(((( Happened while I was away in Japan. He was awesome. And Piers is awesome as well - albeit I think I've finally kicked the habit of the Xanth series after number 40 or 43 or summat. I started forgetting who was who's kid. XD

me too me too! Bink, Trent, and Murphy are my faves :D

I think I liked the first five and Night Mare which I don't recall which number that was, plus skip a few to Man from Mundania and then... and then it kind of fades. Trent doesn't come back does he? :o
