ONCE UPON A PAST


Millie had been a ghost for 800 years.  But now, restored by the magic of Xanth, she was again a maddeningly desirable woman.  She could have had any man she wanted... except the one she did want, Jonathan the zombie.  To grant Millie her desire, and to prove his right to rule Xanth in the future, young Magician Dor embarked on a quest for the elixir which would restore Jonathan to full life.

But the potion could be found only in the past... so, through a magic tapestry, to the past he went, taking over the body of a barbarian warrior.  The first person he encountered there was Jumper, a giant spider - a nightmare monster, but a staunch friend and much-needed ally in peril-haunted, ancient Xanth.

Then Dor met Millie - 800 years younger, but just as lovely.  And her realized that, in this new body, he was no longer twelve years old...

I got the first three books of the Magic of Xanth (it was a trilogy then) when I first joined the Science Fiction Book Club when I was in Junior High.  I remember reading them during two-a-days in 9th grade football.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
