Watching this video made me think of the experience I've had over the last few years revisiting the (mostly SF&F) books of my childhood that are suddenly available on Kindle during long trans-Atlantic flights.

So Many Women As Rewards. The hero either gets the girl Because Fate Decrees It, or by just doing enough Good and Brave Deeds in her vicinity that she can no longer ignore his awesomeness.

And then we wonder why so many boys (myself included) have to have the Nice Guy trope surgically removed before they can grow up and join the rest of humanity.

Was Piers Anthony in there?

If so, I'm so sorry.

Thankfully, he was in the list of "things I don't feel any desire to read again, and anyway, I'd rather not risk someone seeing them in my Kindle library".
