Sheri S. Tepper

Today, Love All Books wishes—with much appreciation—the happiest of birthdays to author Sheri S. Tepper.

I fondly recall (or more truthfully, as my mind ages faster than the rest of me, I dimly recall) reading her The True Game series.

The True Game is a trilogy of trilogies (that is to say, nine books in all: The Peter Trilogy, The Mavin Manyshaped Trilogy, The Jinian Trilogy), with each trilogy named for its main character.

If I read them again today (and hey—I just might; who's gonna stop me? You? Ha!) I might find them quaint, typical, run of the mill stuff, but I don't think so.

What I recall is that, at the time (a time when novelty was valued greatly), I had not previously read anything remotely like these books and, therefore, I enjoyed them a great deal. Take this with a grain of salt, but I do think I can safely recommend them!
