Amber: Re-reading the Classics

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."
