Before any of his groundbreaking works, there was This Immortal, Roger Zelazny's first published novel-and now ibooks is proud to present it to a new generation of readers...

Conrad Nomikos has a long, rich personal history that he'd rather not talk about. And, as Arts Commissioner, he's been given a job he'd rather not do. Escorting an alien grandee on a guided tour of the shattered remains of Earth is not something he relishes-especially when it is apparent that this places him at the center of high-level intrigue that has some bearing on the future of Earth itself!
