This book of short stories is a mixed bag, but well worth reading if you’ve enjoyed Zelazny’s other work. Previously uncollected stories by a true master of the genre.

Manna from Heaven The Chronicles of Amber Highly recommended if you can find it. The concluding Amber pieces were a brief but melancholy last look into this universe sprung from Zelazny’s imagination.

Most of his novels dea 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.

I admire how even in stories where the characters are secondary to the point being made that they still have personalities and subtleties that aren’t at all necessary but without which the stories would feel overly didactic.

There are some that are unique to this book, a few others are scattered about. Thanks for telling us about the problem. May 27, Jan Heiman froj it really liked it Shelves: Maberan Potato rated it really liked it Oct 24, The Chronicles of Amber 10 books.

I have to admit that a few of the short pieces they range from a third of a page to 37 pages in length left me shaking my head, glancing back at various passages, and generally asking “wha’appen?

I don’t normally enjoy reading short stories because it generally takes me so long to grasp the setup that I’m only just getting comfortable with the voices or the settings when the stories end. Hezven the introduction, writer Steven Brust glows and gushes about Zelazny’s genius, praising his ability to “simultaneously confuse and frkm the reader. No trivia or quizzes yet. Hardcoverpages. I have always felt that the ending to the second series is rushed and far too tidy, and these stories serve to muddy the waters in a very satisfying manner.

Carly rated it liked it Aug 16, Anyway, if you like fantasy short stories, I highly recommend this – if you can find it! Zelazny can say so much so quietly and quickly that it’s possible to underestimate how skillfully he’s creating a world and leading one through it. roer

Overall, it was very enjoyable. And no, that’s not paradoxical, that’s just Zelazny. It’s the journey, and Zelazny isn’t afraid to let his readers lose the path and try to find it again. Paul Spence rated it it was amazing Jul 01, Zelazny was one of my favourite authors, but all the good stories here were ones I had read before.
