About the Author

He won his first of six Hugo Awards for Lord of Light, and soon after produced the first book of his enormously popular Amber series, Nine Princes in Amber. In addition to his Hugos, he went on to win three Nebula Awards over the course of a long and distinguished career. He died on June 14, 1995.

it comes together very quickly. Zelazny builds a fantastic
world, without stopping to explain how this or that thing
works or came about. Only few pull this off very well (for
instance Gibson does in Neuromancer), and Zelazny is
amongst them. There are some nice thoughts on mythology
and religion, plenty of action and a number of interesting
characters all packed into under 300 pages. For those
unfamiliar with Hinduism, it does help to look up the different
deities in Wikipedia, although the book makes sense without it.
