Prostho Plus is a fix-up novel from 50 years ago that should never have stuck in my head like it has. I could not remember the title, but I did remember the premise of a dentist being kidnapped by aliens and forced to work on a baby Leviathan whose fillings required tons of gold. In later episodes, he becomes the galaxy’s leading prosthodontist. I am trying to avoid saying that dentists as science fiction heroes are as rare as hen’s teeth. Oops.

Personally I didn't mind the first book in the series.
Yes, A Spell for Chameleon was sexist, etc, but at least the characters were vaguely likable and interesting and the plot moved along reasonably well.
The Source of Magic I didn't enjoy as much. The macho attitude and 1-dimensional characters just started to get really tedious. And it had the "everything will work out in the end" feel about it regardless of any dangers and challenges found along the way.
I've managed to collect most of this series, but will probably pull the pin after the third book, Castle Roogna, unless it manages a huge turnaround and somehow renews my interest. I have plenty of other books on my shelves to get on to.… (lisätietoja)

This one just didn't work for me. Having Mars work in a somewhat modern society, with the limitations of the other Incarnations, just felt forced. It is also starting to be clear in this book where the series is going and I just wasn't that interested. All of these Incarnations, in their own way, are equally powerful, which presents a problem that Anthony does not solve. I loved this series when I read book 1 and book 2, but it really started to go downhill with this one.

A long time ago when I was tweenish, I loved this series. I know it won't survive a re-read, so I'm noting it and letting it go.
