*Roger Zelazny (1937-1995)
"Amber - 1st series" - Nine Princes in Amber; The Guns of
Avalon; The Sign of the Unicorn; The Hand of Oberon; The
Courts of Chaos
"Great fun. Corwin searches first for his memory,
then for revenge, and finally for the key to save
"Amber - 2nd series" - Trumps of Doom; Blood of Amber; Sign
of Chaos; Knight of Shadows; Prince of Chaos
"The 2nd series shows definite signs of exhaustion,
