About Author
Born in 1937, Zelazny became one of the stars of Science Fiction in the 1960's. His short stories and novels combined wit and daring adventures to form characters and situations that one could readily feel much kinship with. Using the mythologies of several peoples, such as the ancient Egyptians, he preferred to think of his writing style as "Science-Fantasy," which seems quite apt. His style was and continues, at least in some circles, to be identified with the New Wave Movement, but that does not do him justice. Authors whom he collaborated with include: Philip K. Dick, Robert Sheckley, Fred Saberhagen, Thomas T. Thomas, Gahan Wilson, Alfred Bester, Jane Linskold, George R. R. Martin, and Gerald Hauseman. Of all his writings, the Amber series of novels is perhaps best known. In a sense, the ten novel cycle displays many of the facets that he possessed. Sadly, he passed away on June 14, 1995, of complications resulting from cancer. He was a unique man, with both vision and grace, whose works stand as testament to the kind of human being he was.
