Order of Xanth Books
Xanth is a series of fantasy novels by American novelist Piers Anthony. The humans in Xanth all have a magical ability (called a “talent”). Almost all abilities are exclusive to a human character and are not shared with any others. In addition to the humans, the world is populated by centaurs, demons, dragons, fauns, gargoyles, goblins, golems, harpies, merfolk, naga, nymphs, ogres, zombies, curse fiends and other creatures.
The Xanth series began in 1977 with the novel A Spell for Chameleon. The series was originally planned as a trilogy, but with the success of the first three books, the series was expanded to nine… and then eventually became open-ended. Most of the novel titles are puns, such as Crewel Lye and Stork Naked. Below is a list of Piers Anthony’s Xanth books in order of when they were originally published (which is also their chronological order):
