      Roger Zelazny made his name with a group of novellas which demonstrated just how intense an emotional charge could be generated by the stock imagery of sf the most famous of these is A Rose for Ecclesiastes in which a poet struggles to convince dying and sterile Martians that life is worth continuing Zelazny continued to write excellent short stories throughout his career Most of his novels deal, one way or another, with tricksters and mythology, often with rogues who become gods, like Sam in Lord of Light, who reinvents Buddhism as a vehicle for political subversion on a colony planet.The fantasy sequence The Amber Chronicles, which started with Nine Princes in Amber, deals with the ruling family of a Platonic realm at the metaphysical heart of things, who can slide, trickster like through realities, and their wars with each other and the related ruling house of Chaos Zelazny never entirely fulfilled his early promise who could but he and his work were much loved, and a potent influence on such younger writers as George R R Martin and Neil Gaiman.He won the Nebula award three times out of 14 nominations and the Hugo award six times out of 14 nominations His papers are housed at the Albin O Khun Library of the University of Maryland, Balti County UMBC.enpedia wiki Roger_Ze

    1. Another excellent collection of Zelazny's work. Great pick of short stories & some really excellent factual stuff by him about writing. It made me want to re-read his stories yet again with his comments in mind - many of which I did. Then I never got around to doing a review, for some reason. I should have. The quality of this series has been fantastic.


    2. reviewstaphorosis 4 starsRoger Zelazny deserves every bit of his status as a legendary SFF author. At his best (which he often was - see Lord of Light), his prose verged on poetry without ever losing its readability. His short fiction (gathered in several partial collections over the years) was as good, if not better. So, running across a complete collection of his short works is as exciting to an SF fan as finding that a (more) affordable version of the [Jack] Vance Integral Edition is being pu [...]


    3. As I said in my recap of the first four volumes of this series, everything is awesome, especially the notes after each story that give some insight into Zelazny’s writing. Also, the biographical stuff and the speeches and essays at the end are great.With that out of the way, here’s a list of all the stories in the book (not including poetry/articles/whatever). I’ve bolded the ones I felt stood out. Permafrost Itself Surprised (series: Fred Saberhagen's Berserker universe) Mana from Heaven [...]


    4. The science fiction mythologist strikes again! Definitely enjoyed the creativity of this collection by Roger Zelazny. Always some philosophical message - Loved the piece on Vampires and population control. Also enjoyed the Dilvish stories. A talking ape that Dilvish rides around, who kills people, and gets into all sots of mythical conflicts, in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world that eerily resembles medieval-feudalism creative! I liked Permafrost, and the piece on Mount Fuji - the Prize Winning [...]
