Roger Zelazny

About the Author

Wrote a mixture of sf and fantasy, and is unfortunately deceased. His most popular work is the Amber series. The first Amber series was very good, but the second seemed to be less focused plot-wise. He wrote a number of short stories, but I prefer my books longer. My favorite by him was, _Nine Princesof Amber_.


- One of his early works (1966). Like his Amber series, the main character was superhuman and long-lived, and the main cast seemed to hate each other. More simple than the Amber novels, it is also a good deal shorter. Interesting to read, if you like the Amber novels, but not a novel I liked a good deal. It won the 1965 Hugo Award, tied with Frank Herbert's Dune.
