It's Not Too Late; Two Long Running Series You Can Still Enjoy

I've been meaning to talk to you about this
It's okay, you're not in trouble
Its just a couple of series
Both quite enjoyable
Both for different reasons
We have recently filled in the gaps
We have the entirety of both series

Discworld by Sir Terry Pratchett
39 books and counting
Discworld is good satire
Playing on Literature, old and new
Classic and Popular fiction
Often throwing in current events
Social, Political and Scientific
No one, no idea, is safe

Xanth by Piers Anthony
35 books and counting
As fates would have it
Book 13 is out of print and missing
It would be foolish of me
To try to explain Xanth
You have to take the trip
You have to visit Xanth
You will probably want to visit again and again

The online communities for both series are flush
A good place to start, if interested, is the Wikipedia
You can easily be led astray from there

 After a giddy trip into either of these worlds
You might enjoy something to carry you away
The Harrow & The Harvest by Gillian Welch
