Bearing An Hourglass - Piers Anthony I don’t want to be critical of this book. I have way too many fond memories of the Incarnations of Immortality series. But, yeah, it’s pretty bad.

In fairness, trying to write about Chronos who is living in reverse to the rest of the world must have significant challenges for plot and continuity. So Piers Anthony has my respect for tackling that. However, it gets ridiculously silly in parts in a way that is both intentional and completely jarring. I’m all for space cowboys and wicked sorceresses (less so for unicorns), but it’s all just too much.
