The Roger Zelazny Project

It is no secret that Roger Zelazny is one of my favorite writers.  "Nine Princes in Amber" is one of the most read books in my collection.  So I began an unofficial "Roger Zelazny Project".  My goal is to eventually read (and in most cases re-read) all of his novels and short fiction.  Coming up soon on this site will be reviews of "The Guns of Avalon" and a short story called "The George Business".

I am always on the lookout for Zelazny sites.  One that stood out to me is Zelazny & Amber. As part of my tribute to an author who has given me many hours of reading pleasure, I volunteered to help out on the site.  Starting today I will be writing summaries of his novels.  You can go to the novel page by clicking here.  My first summary is for "Nine Princes in Amber".  I will post a message here as I do more of the summaries.

One of my favorite parts of the site is the "Encounters".  Numerous people has left comments about their experiences with Zelazny.  If you had any interaction with him, please leave a note on the site.

You have set yourself a pretty big task. I applaud your enthusiasm and wish you luck!

I've been lusting after The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny series from NESFA for some time - six volumes alone! It's supposed to be a complete collection and they feature a sweet cover treatment where all the covers combine into a single giant image.

Oh, excellent. Roger Zelazny remains my favorite author and I embarked on a similar project a while back. I would absolutely love to see someone else's take on this.
