5 Quotations from Piers Anthony

galactic n. 1 1976 P. Anthony Steppe (1980) i. 14 They did not consider themselves demons. In their own odd language they were ‘Galactics’—human beings from far away, representatives of a mighty empire that spanned a much greater region than did the Uigur realm at its height. That empire extended over planets and systems and constellations—though these were concepts of such sorcerous complexity and incongruity as to baffle his mind.
galaxy-wide adv. 1978 P. Anthony Chaining Lady xvii. 258 Melody tried to compose her thoughts, but they were a jumble of uncertainties. What decisions could she have made to avoid this present doom?

rocketport n. 1990 P. Anthony And Eternity vii. 152 The ship backed down to its rocketport and dropped into its harness. The safe-to-debark gong sounded.
