About the author (1967)

Roger Zelazny burst onto the SF scene in the early 1960s with a series of dazzling and groundbreaking short stories. 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."
