WHEN OGRE HOOD
WAS IN FLOWER


Smash knew all about ogres.  After all, despite his having a human mother, Smash was an ogre himself.  Ogres were not only huge and horribly ugly, as Smash was; they were also so stupid they could hardly speak, and they spent most of the time fighting, destroying, and eating young girls.

So what was he doing here with seven assorted females looking for him to guide them and save them?  Even in Xanth, where magic made anything possible, why should Tandy the Nymph trust him and seem fond of him?  And how could all then high-flown conversation be coming out of his mouth?

But that, it seemed, was what he got for going to Good Magician Humphrey for an Answer - before he even knew what the Question was!

  • 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.
