One of the most revered names in science fiction and fantasy, the incomparable Roger Zelazny was honored with numerous prizes—including six Hugo and three Nebula Awards—over the course of his legendary career. Among his more than fifty books, arguably Zelazny’s most popular literary creations were his extraordinary Amber novels.
Now officially licensed by the Zelazny estate, the first book in this legendary series is now finally available electronically.
Carl Corey wakes up in a secluded New York hospital with amnesia. He escapes and investigates, discovering the truth, piece by piece: he is really Prince Corwin, of Amber, the one true world of which our Earth is just a shadow. He is one of nine men who might rule Amber, if he can fight his way past the armies of his older brother Eric.
A fantasy fiction classic!
Book one of Zelazny’s unforgettable fantasy saga of Machiavellian intrigue and worlds beyond imagination. I envy those readers who will discover this and read it for the first time!
The cover art makes my eyes bleed, and I honestly have no idea why the reviews are so good. It actually starts off interesting, like a noir mystery, but then turns into a bad CS Lewis novel. I’ve heard the female characters get better, but for the entirety of this first book, they are dismissed from the main character’s reasoning because they don’t have real opinions. At least it only took me 4 hours to read.
Nine Princes in Amber
One of the most descriptive writers ever born.
