Blast from the Past
« on: August 22, 2004, 01:12:56 PM »
Anyway, like I was saying a long time ago... Roger Zelazny is one of the best sci-fi/fantasy writers of all time. This thread is a tribute to him, and those select few that are enlightened enough to realize he's great!

(also its a good excuse to get back on the forums... two birds with one stone 'n all that)

I don't debate, I ramble with STYLE!

Well, something about a long time in a cold, dark place...  ::)


...Well, not really... I refuse to reveal the entire story of "Fatali's Long Summer Adventure" at this time...

...So... 'No Comment'  ;D

I agree. A good way to get back on the forums and to pay tribute to one of the greatest authors of all time.  Right now, I've been reading a book that was created by him. The book is in four parts. He came up with the concept and he wrote the introduction to each part. Four different authors write the four parts The story is this: The great evil has been defeated. The four sacred magic items have been retrieved and they were used to defeat the evil. Now, the items have started causing weird time/space distortions.  Now the heroes have to take the items back to where they were.  Its called Forever After.
She's back. She's proud. She will overcome!

Interesting... tell me more!

Right now Im in the middle of a Zelazny short story collection called "The Last Defender of Camelot"

Its some serious hardcore sci-fi stuff... Very interesting concepts on robots and such (any person that liked "I Robot" would approve)

I'm not very far into it so I can't really tell you any more than that. I've been bouncing back and forth between lots of books and school and I don't reall have all that much free time. I think I have Last Defender of Camelot somewhere, but I never read it.  Have you ever heard of his short story collection "The Doors of his Face, The Lamps of his Mouth."  Thats some deep stuff right there.
