Ace 36525 The Illustrated Roger Zelazny GOOD
The Illustrated Roger Zelazny
This is a delight for true Zelazny fans. I wish I could scan some of the interior art without cracking the binding, but the cover gives you a hint of what is within:
We begin with a new Shadowjack adventure, in comic book format with all black-and-white art. This tale precedes the novel Jack of Shadows.
Followed by a brief set of black-and-white illustrations for stories NOT in this collection, then the prize: a portfolio in color, from Nine Princes in Amber, with many illustrations of the Royal Family as they might appear on their Trumps.
Next, perhaps Zel-zany's finest short story, A Rose for Ecclesiastes, text with many drawings, both b-w and color. An old piece called The Furies, text with almost cartoonish b-w art, and finally the story whose title is almost as long as the tale, The Doors of his Face, the Lamps of his Mouth, lengthened by many b-w illos.
First Ace printing, 1979. Nice book with two major flaws: a double dogear lower right of cover, and a deep spine crease which breaks the binding at the beginning of the Amber gallery.
