I never thought I'd be GRATEFUL that the deepest our rabbit hole went was Piers Anthony.

Me and Mori have been on a huge records kick lately, and rereading these books we hadn't looked at in ten, fifteen years... it's actually really unsettling. I can FEEL the nostalgia buttons in our brain being pushed, but the books are AWFUL! They offend me on all personal and professional levels! They're badly written, misogynist as hell, and the biggest load of pedopologia I've seen since I was reading NAMBLA docs.

As horribly unpleasant as it is to read this stuff now as an adult, at the same time, it's jogging my memory, and giving me a window into the mind of who we were. Why the books resonated.

Plus, you know. It's fun to mock in its own way. And I'm so glad we're no longer in this place where these books comfort us--because it's proof that we've moved on past the point where we accept such creepery as a natural part of our life.
