It’s really quite tiresome and takes away any fun out of the overarching scheming that is basically the entire plot of the books. The story being written in first person he was of course a hero to himself and his enemies were wrong all the time in the first book.


Return to Book Page. These five stories follow Corwin, who awakes in a mental hospital with no memory of how he got there or even his name, but who slowly recovers to learn that he is a member of the r “The First Chronicles of Amber” collects “Nine Princes in Amber”, “The Guns of Avalon”, “Signs of the Unicorn”, “The Hand of Oberon” and “The Courts of Chaos” – the first arc of Roger Zelazny’s epic saga centering on Amber, the only place that REALLY exists, but which casts infinite shadows, including one called Earth.

They do not stand alone and there is no point in reading any of them individually or out-of-order. 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.
