On the heels of Carl Sagan's "The Demon-Haunted World," I've started in on Roger Zelazny's "Amber" series.
In the meantime, here are some Amber-related scribbles from previous posts:
Amber series overview--the Corwin books
Amber 01: Nine Princes in Amber; Corwin wakes up with amnesia
Amber 02: The Guns of Avalon; Corwin embarks on a journey of revenge...and to take the Throne of Amber from his brother Eric!
Amber 03: Sign of the Unicorn, where Corwin has the Throne...but does he even want it now?
Comparing...: Magic--Transportation, a look at the magic systems of Amber, Robert Asprin's "MYTH" series, and Lackey's "Valdemar."
