I really need to stop buying books instead of grabbing something to eat after magazine meetings on Thursday nights.
Anyway, I was at one of my favourite book haunts and found a copy of The Great Book of Amber! It was marked down to a bargain because of a small tear at the back. I've been wanting to read these chronicles ever since I dug through Garth Nix's recommendations.
In the past, I have read Zelazny's novella - To Die In Italbar. I found that I liked his writing style but I remember being frustrated with how the female characters were represented. It often happens when I read some classic sf but I'm hoping these chronicles are different.
