Phthor by Pier Anthony is the sequel to Chthon and like Chthon, it is a book from my younger years that I have set out to reread in my latter years. The difference between what I remembered what Chthon was about and my latest reading was night and day. I cannot say that about Phthor. I simply did not remember anything from the first read except it was continued in the story that is built around the Minionettes, sirens of unnatural beauty. Like Chthon, it is brutal

Phthor by Pier Anthony is the sequel to Chthon and like Chthon, it is a book from my younger years that I have set out to reread in my latter years.

The difference between what I remembered what Chthon was about and my latest reading was night and day. I cannot say that about Phthor. I simply did not remember anything from the first read except it was continued in the story that is built around the Minionettes, sirens of unnatural beauty. Like Chthon, it is brutal. This time, we see the use of Norse mythology and Ragnarok as a parallel to what Aton's son Arlo is experiencing as the favorite of Chthon. We see Aton is now a resident of Chthon, with his human wife, sick from the incurable Chill. We see a preadolescent Minionette that captures Arlo heart, and later why Chthon, who turns out to be as a sentinel being, tried to destroy her when she first came on the scene. Phthor has Chthon as a sentinel being, one not flesh and blood but inanimate life force. Was Chthon good and other life forms bad (there are 4 different lifeforms)? Was life good and Chthon bad?

I enjoy this series and later, when I get the time, I will read Charles Platt's sequels to this story.

A continuation of the Chthon story from the late sixties. It details what came before and after the story ends.

Phthor is certainly one of Anthony's better works, written during his more prolific period, and serving as a reminder that there's much more to Piers Anthony than Xanth. While Chthon is the preferable book in the series (there are 4, the first two written by Mr. Anthony himself, the latter two written by Charles Platt), Phthor holds its own as a good sequel. The subject matter is dark, and often frank (in the case of many of the main characters' perennial nudity), and presents many interesting themes throughout.
Worth the time, especially if you've read (and enjoyed) Chthon.

I first read this story 25 years ago. I had never read Chthon. Phthor has remained with me to this day. What a wild, provocative, thought-provoking (I'm repeating myself, but wow) sci-fi re-imagining of Norse mythology, and specifically the concept of Ragnarok. HIGHLY recommended.

The world building is fantastic, and feels real. I had never read a story before where the concept of a society's failures not seeing themselves as failures but as normal, and the impact of that... I just really, really enjoyed where Piers Anthony went with that. This wasn't a utopia, it wasn't a dystopia, it was just life. Who is to say what is normal and what is not normal? Who is to say what is beautiful and what is grotesque? Who is to say what is acceptable and what is not acceptable? Who is to judge?

I would have loved to have seen some fantasy roleplay books based on this world (in spite of............. what happens at the end). I also would have loved to have known what was going on in Anthony's mind when he conceived of this living world. Again, HIGHLY recommended based only on the impact it had on me 25 years ago. I will give a new review if I happen to get my hands on a reprint, after reading it again.
