Both stories concern telepaths, and they seemed to be preview for his later works. I enjoyed them when they were new, but like many things, they don't necessarily age well. Read full review

Zelazny's sci-fi is like no one else's - very personal, always thought provoking. Man struggles to outwit the extraterrestrial masters who have laid claim to Earth. For 1976, Zelazny is prescient: “'The wealthy, powerful nations owe their power, their wealth, their standards of existence, to the sort of exploitation the others are now being called upon to forgo - and the call comes just at the point when those others are approaching a position where they can indulge in the same sorts of enterprise and reap similar benefits.'”

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.
