    But What Of Earth A great title I was hooked on that alone.However, I had to go about reading this one a different way than any other There are, as any Anthony fan knows, two different versions of this novel The first one was the hacked up, chewed up and spat out Laser Book 44 published in 1976 with apparent co author Robert Coulson, and Anthony s original manuscript published by Tor Books in 1989, with a 100 plus specific gripes pertaining to the 76 version of the p...

    Piers Anthony s But What of Earth is an astonishing book, a novel he had originally written in the 70s and which was subsequently rewritten at the publisher s insistence but apparently without Anthony s permission This got Anthony s dander up, and now, 13 years later, he has his revenge In this book he lashes out at not only his publisher and his unwitting co writer, but also, and most especially, at the bevy of copy editors who scrawled on his manuscript Somehow he got his hands on their m Piers Anthony s But What of Earth is an astonishing book, a novel he had originally written in the 70s and which was subsequently rewritten at the publisher s insistence but apparently without Anthony s permission This got Anthony s dander up, and now, 13 years later, he has his revenge In this book he lashes out at not only his publisher and his unwitting co writer, but also, and most especially, at the bevy of copy editors who scrawled on his manuscript Somehow he got his hands on their marks, and he quotes them at length, in order to hold them up to for ridicule, in the lengthy endnotes that make up a good third of the book I am not making this up Here he calls them conniving bitches p230 suggests that one missed a nuance because she was in the Ladie s Room at the moment p235 hypothesiz...

    The book itself is actually decent it s clearly a first draft and shouldn t have been put out that way, but for a first draft it s pretty incredible, and definitely draws you in.But that s not why most pople pick up this particular edition of But What of Earth I would imagine It s the compendium of footnotes at the end However, those footnotes have succeeded in one thing turning me off of Piers Anthony The misogyny in those comments, combined with the pretnetious thought that he, being The book itself is actually decent it s clearly a first draft and shouldn t have been put out that way, but for a first draft it s pretty incredible, and definitely draws you in.But that s not why most pople pick up this particular edition of But What of Earth I would imagine It s the compendium of footnotes at the end However, those footnotes have succeeded in one thing turning me off of Piers Ant...

    This book was all right, and was entertaining enough, but wasn t quite as good as I d expected or hoped.I found the style a little stilted especially some of the dialogue , at times, and the development of the major relationships had a suddenness that made them hard to believe Again, Anthony s female characters seemed under developed It waslike observing a narrated story than actually experiencing it, and this feeling took away from the enjoyment of what could otherwise have been quite This book was all right, and was entertaining enough, but wasn t quite as good as I d expected or hoped.I found the style a little stilted especially some of the dialogue , at times, and the development of the major relationships had a suddenness that made them hard to believe Again, Anthony s female characters seemed under developed It waslike observing a narrated story than actually experiencing it, and this feeling took away from the enjoyment of what could otherwise have been quite a good book The central theme and Anthony ...

    The book has problems It s too loose to be considered a good book But I like the premise of it quite a lot Imagine space travel becomes relatively cheap You don t need to be a billionaire, but you need a decent bank account Now imagine there are colonies on other planets designed for those rich people to live Pretty soon everyone who can afford it will leave this dirty, polluted earth behind Why subject yourself to the poor, huddled masses When the rich people leave, things get uglier an The book has problems It s too loose to be considered a go...

    This book is fascinating not for its plot or characters but for the subplot of what the original publisher and people hired by the publisher as editors and re writers did to Piers Anthony s book The book is written in the classic humorous Anthony style, familiar to any of his fans I did not read the original published edition but I read the edition with Piers Anthony ...

    As others have said, the major draw here is not the story itself, which is a pretty readable draft, but the meta story, including the arguments with the editors It s been so long since I read it that I don t remember specifics, but I do remember how drastically some of them wanted to change it, to the point where it would have been a completely different book Now, in the case of many Anthony books, you could argue that might be an improvement, but the point is that it wasn t his book after tha As others have said, the major draw ...

    Science fiction books are touch and go at times Sometimes they get so wrapped up in the science portion of the story they forget the fiction But What of Earth doesn t do this It is an amazing tale of what happens to the planet Earth once new inhabitab...

    Anthony has done a surprisingly good job on this, especially considering the incredibly tight deadline and word limit imposed by the editor he had to deal with.He usually takes three months to write a book, to ensure it is as good as possible, he was given a deadline of two months, plus he likes to go 100k plus words to fully fles...
