Gollum, what a great idea! You're a sweet plum.

Re: Nine princes to Amber - Roger Zelazny

Having only read the Chronicals of Amber (books 1 to 5), and having thoroughly enjoyed them, what else of his should I read?

AH well you could start by reading his classic novel Lord Of Light. It's arguably his best work.

Also check out Isle Of The Dead, Doorways in the Sand and The Dream Master. There's plenty more but members like JD Worthington will be able to fill in more for you.

Easier to say what I didn't read.

Let me think about it...

Re: Nine princes to Amber - Roger Zelazny

This bibliography, which I compiled very quickly, is incomplete, as you can see. The books I haven't read are marked with an asterisk.
For instance, I didn't categorise every novel (SF or F). Can you help me?


After compiling this, I realise I haven't read all novels. In fact, I'm far from it...

A noble effort, Giovanna, but not entirely accurate or complete (for example, it's A Farce to Be Reckoned With, not Force). A far more inclusive (though still not fully complete) list can be found here: Roger Zelazny - Summary Bibliography

Looking at those you've asterisked, I envy you... You still have some great reading to come!

Re: Nine princes to Amber - Roger Zelazny

Oops, ashes on my head... of course it's "farce", not "force".

Well, my incomplete effort was just a bibliographic note, and I was surprised to see how many novels I haven't read, not to speak of the short stories; cf. those listed in the other thread. That list, I believe, is complete, but if you see any mistake, Ian...

Re: Nine princes to Amber - Roger Zelazny

Another book worth mentioning - though not 100% accurate - is the Zelazny bibliography Amber Dreams by Daniel J H Levack. I don't know if it was updated past 1986 but has a wealth of information plus a lot of the alternative covers, though not all. Very expensive when I bought it but maybe it can be found cheaper these days.

Re: Nine princes to Amber - Roger Zelazny

Just yesterday; it's been here for about 22 hours.

There were 8 Zelazny threads, and a clamour of interest.

So, Zeus pointed with his sceptre, et voilà!
