Online Auction Description
By Roger Zelazny
Cover and Interior Art by Esteban Maroto
Zelazny takes up a theme used by several other writers: Each world has one mirror duplicate, in which magic works but science does not. On the magic side, a tyrant is destroyed, his dragons slain, his castle razed to the ground. But in the ruins is found an infant, clearly birthmarked as the tyrant's heir.
The wizard who led the rebellion could not order the slaying of a newborn, nor could he countenance keeping him alive in his own world, perhaps becoming the pole of a new tyranny when he grew to adulthood. So the child is transferred to Earth, the world in the science dimension. Because of the Law of Symmertry, an infant had to be taken from Earth to keep the worlds in balance.
Twenty years later, two misplaced young men begin to take their first faltering steps towards their true destinies.
Book club hardcover with jacket, ex-library in plastic protector. Shows quite a bit of dirt and wear. Pages are white. Binding is excellent.
