"The Night Has 999 Eyes" by Roger Zelazny
On the list of Roger Zelazny stories, this ranks near the bottom. The language is as excellent as a reader has come to expect from this author. Unfortunately the story itself reads like a fragment of another story that he started but didn't finish. Since this appeared in a fanzine instead of a prozine, I guess the editors did not care for this story fragment.
If you have to read everything Roger Zelazny wrote (like me), pick it up and give it a try. It does not take long to read. If you are looking for good Zelazny short fiction, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
