Review: Doorways in the Sand

User Review  - Goodreads

Zelazny's books are hit and miss. Doorways in the Sand is a miss. I'm not quite sure what he was going for … the plot ambles without direction or purpose, and while there are some interesting, if disparate concepts, Zelazny seems unable to wrangle them into a cohesive whole. Read full review

About the author (1976)

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. 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.
