About the author (1979)

Author Roger Zelazny was born in Euclid, Ohio on May 13, 1937. After receiving his B.A. from Case Western Reserve University and his M.A. from Columbia University, Zelazny began publishing science fiction stories in 1962. His reputation has gone through ups and downs, but he was given a Nebula award in 1966 for And Call Me Coward (1965), in a tie with Dune by Frank Herbert. He won a total of three Nebula awards and six Hugo awards. A prolific writer, Zelazny's works focus on the relationship between illusion and reality. He always pays close attention to his craft, and his stories are intelligent, occasionally sentimental, often romantic and, to his many fans, very satisfying. He died of kidney failure secondary to colorectal cancer on June 14, 1995.
