,b>LOST IN THE
JUNGLES OF XANTH


There was trouble in Xanth again - all kinds of trouble in fact.

The Gap Dragon had escaped from the Gap and was ravaging across the land.  The forget-spell that had covered the Gap was breaking up into small forget-whorls that wandered about, giving amnesia to all they touched.  Good Magician Humphrey might have had the Answer, but he had overdosed on water from the Fountain of Youth and was only a helpless baby.

And Ivy, three-year-old daughter of King Dor and Queen Irene, was lost in the jungles south of the Gap.  While Irene sought her without much hope. Ivy was wondering further into danger, her memories erased by a passing forget-whorl.  Her path was leading her directly to where the Gap Dragon was seeking dinner.

  • 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.
