End of the first trilogy[edit]

The title and theme of this novel plays upon the common joke that Anthony had originally intended only a trilogy of novels, but as they kept appearing, kept calling it an "extended trilogy." This book concludes the "first trilogy" as it is twenty-seventh (three cubed) novel. He has now started on his "second trilogy."

Pangrammatic window[edit]

The shortest known published pangrammatic window, a stretch of naturally occurring text that contains all the letters in the alphabet, is found on page 98 of the 2004 First Mass Market Edition. The passage, which is 42 letters long, reads: "We are all from Xanth," Cube said quickly. "Just visiting Phaze. We just want to find the dragon."[2]
