    About "Roger Zelazny"

    1. Roger Zelazny

      Roger Zelazny made his name with a group of novellas which demonstrated just how intense an emotional charge could be generated by the stock imagery of sf the most famous of these is A Rose for Ecclesiastes in which a poet struggles to convince dying and sterile Martians that life is worth continuing Zelazny continued to write excellent short stories throughout his career Most of his novels deal, one way or another, with tricksters and mythology, often with rogues who become gods, like Sam in Lord of Light, who reinvents Buddhism as a vehicle for political subversion on a colony planet.The fantasy sequence The Amber Chronicles, which started with Nine Princes in Amber, deals with the ruling family of a Platonic realm at the metaphysical heart of things, who can slide, trickster like through realities, and their wars with each other and the related ruling house of Chaos Zelazny never entirely fulfilled his early promise who could but he and his work were much loved, and a potent influence on such younger writers as George R R Martin and Neil Gaiman.He won the Nebula award three times out of 14 nominations and the Hugo award six times out of 14 nominations His papers are housed at the Albin O Khun Library of the University of Maryland, Balti County UMBC.enpedia wiki Roger_Ze

    1. Review updated yet again on October 26, 2017A group read with some of my greatest friends Choko, Layla, and Tadiana I will add people to the list when they finish their reading The most common cover of the book is so perfect I cannot help showing it here Half of the fun in most of Zelazny s books is to figure out what is going on For this reason I have to be as obscure as possible Imagine Jack the Ripper, Sherlock Holmes, Count Dracula, Dr Frankenstein, Rasputin, Larry Talbot if you do not know [...]


    2. Final review, just in time for Halloween First posted on Fantasy Literature During the entire month of October, in the late 1800s, in a year when the full moon falls on Halloween, strange forces gather in a village outside of London.Various iconic characters who will be familiar to fans of Victorian literature and classic horror movies create shifting alliances, gather herbs, instruments of power and the odd eyeball and femur, and prepare for a mystery shrouded event that will take place on Hall [...]


    3. Soooooooooooooooooo this was a group read I forced upon my nearest and dearest I looooove my GR gals even if you hated or loved every minute of it ladieeeeeees I am a watchdog My name is Snuff I live with my master Jack outside of London now I like Soho very much at night with its smelly fogs and dark streets It is silent then and we go for long walks.The story of A NIGHT IN LONESOME OCTOBER is told in a prologue and thirty one chapters one for each day in October I read it in threemetimes you j [...]


    4. Carpe baculum Seize the stick You know the feeling when you finish the book and with a quiet satisfied and slightly smug smile realize that it was just perfect, as though it was written just for you Sometimes I get lucky like that Roger Zelazny has a unique quirkiness in his narration that speaks directly to me, and A Night in the Lonesome October which I read in one breath over the wee hours of a late October night is no exception.Zelazny is a genius when it comes to telling a story The trick h [...]


    5. 5 A buddy read with the Roger Zelazny Newbies Group, since we wanted to start with a bang Where do I start Let s begin with my thanks to Evgeny, who had the good sense to invite several of us for the Halloween Read and made us read it Thank you I had no idea what I was getting myself into After all, I am not a horror reading type of a gal However, I believe Horror is the last thing I would associate A Night in Lonesome October with The first would be smart and second, funny It is like a Hallowee [...]


    6. Zelazny is a genius although I have a sneaking suspicion his genius may be drug related Where else would you come up with the idea of telling a Victorian mystery humor horror story from the point of view of a dog The first clue of the kind of upcoming weirdness comes from the dedication, which is to Shelley, Poe, Stoker, Doyle, Lovecraft, Bradbury, Bloch, and Terhune dog breeder and writer That means not only does the cast of characters include the watchdog Snuff, and his master, Jack, a man who [...]


    7. A Night in the Lonesome October is about a gateway to a dimension of Lovecraftian horrors and the two opposing forces dedicated to opening the gate or making sure it stays closed The story is told from the point of view of Jack the Ripper s dog Snuff Yeah, you read that right.I was hooked right away, around the time Snuff and the graveyard dog had a funny conversation and asked to see one another s teeth One of the characters calls The Game, as it is known, a lunatic scavenger hunt That s pretty [...]


    8. Everyone Luuuuurved It But Me Now that s a Surprise Buddy Read ELIBMNtaSBR with Evgeny aka The Culprit , Tadiana, Choko, Layla, Maria and Robin So this was me while I was reading this book Shrimpless Needless to say, I wasn t in the best of dispositions to read this classic Halloween read By the way, worry not for I am not going to explain again how slightly pointless the whole Halloween read thing is to me, because been there done that and all that crap Anyway, Halloween Evgeny s disastrous inf [...]


    9. Imagine a brave Scooby Doo at WorkI rarely get chance to read a highly admired book A Night in the Lonesome October by Roger Zelazny is my first review read from Netgalley Whether you call the genre humour or horror or lovecraftian or mystery, but I am not able to put it into single genre confidently Unlike my other review reads this book shows clear cut difference between debut author and veteran author.I think one has to read the book to understand what the story is all about And many reviewer [...]


    10. Evgeny, thanks again for a great recommendation This book is a great blend of mystery spices, gripping suspense, funny dialogues and fabulous fantasy Mr Zelazny s writing style just enchanted me so straightforward, smooth and so compelling at the same time, with no difficult words or complex descriptions The story simply is a page turner.What gripped me in A Night in the Lonesome October Definitely the talking animals, the monsters who entertained Snuff with their mad requests and dangerous plan [...]


    11. I used to watch How I Met Your Mother and loved all the various challenges that Barney took on because someone in the group said there was no way he could do it Like picking up girls in overalls or licking the Liberty Bell So in my head this is how Roger Zelazny responded when someone told him it would be impossible to make Jack the Ripper into a good guy.I always try to read something for the Halloween season Horror isn t exactly my genre so I attempt to pick something mysterious than scary an [...]


    12. How many times have I read Roger Zelazny s A Night in the Lonesome October I literally can t remember if it s four or five or six And it never loses its freshness or excitement.And how do I write a review for this book that will do it justice So cleverly written, and readers will delight in figuring out one by one who each of the players in the game are many of which are characters from Victorian literature Even though this was my fourth or go round with these characters, I stayed up late to ex [...]


    13. Actual rating 3.5I actually managed to stick to the one chapter a day format of this book, which made for a fun little adventure This is the second Zelazny novel I ve read, having only dipped my toe into his Chronicles of Amber with the first book Zelazny is a science fiction and fantasy forefather of the 1960s through the 1980s, having influenced the likes of Neil Gaiman and George R.R Martin He won 3 Nebula Awards and 6 Hugo Awards, and is most famous for his Chronicles of Amber In other words [...]


    14. Oct2017 Reading yet again with Fantasy Book Club Many thanks to Helen for inviting me to read along It is in memory of Brenda who recently lost a battle to cancer this was one of her favorite books Mine too, obviously Definitely a Halloween tradition I must watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show tonight The one with Tim Curry, of course.It was a great read with a great bunch of people I added some to my notes we relabeled the characters on the front cover due to a great insight by Anna She saw the [...]


    15. Halloween buddy read with some of my awesome friends.Growing moon Angry cat Feather in the wind Autumn comes The grass dies A Night in the Lonesome October is a very different book in so many ways In so many good ways It is written from a dog s point of view and consists of a prologue plus 31 chapters, one chapter for each day of October You have no idea what is going on in the major part of the book, but instead you come across all sorts of characters that you might for instance know from other [...]


    16. An entertaining, interesting story on the face, the understory is even better Zelazny s sheer number of allusions and amount of sources truly make it a lunatic scavenger hunt that lead to research in some very dark dusty corners of history, film, myth, writing.2012 Re reading yet again with the Beyond Reality group.By Day topic show 1Cover other Art topic show 1Both of these topics contain spoilers I m armed with 20 pages of notes a copy of the cover art We re having a great discussion with some [...]


    17. 3.5 I m a Universal Monster nut I have the stuffed animal collection, the silver screen box, key chains, artwork for the poster of The Creature from the Black Lagoon signed by the artist and autographs from Ricou Browning and Julie Adams from a convention on it years later , a few other collectables, the collector box set with statues of Dracula, Frankenstein and The Wolf ManI d have much but, you know, I m poor.This book gets brownie points just for including some of these characters My heart [...]


    18. Buddy read with Roger Zelazny Newbies Group Thanks for suggesting this read Evgeny This was a pretty interesting story, a lot interesting than I initially expected The way it was approached plays a big role in why I liked it so much And because of the chosen POV I had a blast figuring out which characters was which famous literature hero And when i couldn t I had my wonderful friends at RZN to help me out even if I spend most of my time there just lurking.At first it was a slow going but about [...]


    19. 3.5 I read A Night in the Lonesome October with some of my favorite gal pals on I wasn t quite sure what to expect but what I got was not at all what I had imagined.The story is told in 31 chapters each one is a day in October You are following around Snuff, a watchdog who tells you all about his adventures for the day There are other animals that are in the story as well working with their human companion to collect items and information for what they refer to as The Game Imagine going to a mov [...]


    20. Goodness gracious, I am super late writing this review My schedule just exploded after the middle of October, and I had no time Because it s been nearly a month, I don t have the best memory of all the plotlines But I promised I would write a review for every book I read, so better late than never, and my review will be of the general sort.I was fortunate to find this at my library and it fit very well thematically into my October Scare Fest reading I enjoyed it overall It s an odd little book, [...]


    21. A very enjoyable read from Roger Zelazny, consistent with other material I ve read by him.The tone is light, although the subject matter is grim It seems that on Halloween night, unimaginable horrors will attempt to enter this world A gathering of powers has come together, some to hold it back, and some to try to help it along.Throughout the month, these opposing forces are playing a game of positioning, alliances, and grabs for talismans to help their cause or hinder the opposition.The story is [...]


    22. A wonderful book in every sense of the word, and perfect October reading Jack the Ripper, the Wolfman, Sherlock Holmes, Dr Frankenstein and his monster , Dracula, a witch, a mad monk, an evil vicar and many , all attempting to perform a ritual to either allow Lovecraftian old ones through to our plane, or prevent it from happening And all ably narrated by Snuff, Jack s faithful, and possibly immortal, dog companion Zelazny was on top form here, a towering talent, taken far too early.It s gorgeou [...]


    23. Oh what a fast, fun adventure for us lovers of mystery, fantasy and horrorNarrated by Jack the Ripper s faithful door opening guard dog Snuff with his best pal Graymalk the cat by his side Roger Zelazny dedicates his last book to some of the GREATSShelley, Poe, Stoker, Doyle, Lovecraft, Bradbury, Bloch, Tenhune and makers of old movies.The wild and crazy romp with the supernatural begins on October 1 and ends.ly.on All Hallows Eve, and besides the thrashing Jack, you ll encounter favorites like [...]


    24. This amalgamation of Victorian gothic and penny dreadful cliches is the best example of Zelazny s tongue in cheek humor Without taking itself too seriously, the book avoids the campiness of the author s Bring Me the Head of Prince Charming and manages to be exciting and plot driven without losing its sense of whimsy Zelazny also succeeds in capturing the requisite dark and shadowed Victorian London atmosphere without becoming unbearably heavy or going to extremes of nastiness, as many recent use [...]


    25. No u usamljenom oktobru me je ba prijatno iznenadila, prvi put kad se radi o Zelazniju li ena je pretencioznosti koja kvari dobar deo njegovih radova samo u pomenuti Ru u za Propovednika i zbrzanosti koja ih tako e kvari pozniji nastavci Ambera i do izra aja dolaze sve njegove vrline, duhovitost, arm i erudicija, upravo jer se ne trudi da ih nagari do kraja Tehni ki, ovo bi trebalo da spada u horor, ali u pitanju je zapravo lepr ava postmoderna fantazija o vi e klasi nih li nosti od Drakule do D [...]


    26. Pa ovo je tako lepo.Pri a prati jedan oktobar, dan po dan, iz ugla super neobi nog psa koji je pomo nik oveka koji e, kada mesec istekne, odigrati veliku ulogu u metafizi koj borbi ija nam priroda na po etku nikako nije jasna Ali sve i da pri a ne vodi prema toj borbi i da ne prati mesec, ve godinu, bilo bi lepo za itanje jer je toplo i inteligentno na nekakav diskretan na in Ba milina.


    27. This was my second attempt at reading Zelazny, and although I enjoyed this one than the last one, I am beginning to think that Zelazny s style just doesn t agree with me The best way that I can think to describe it is that I feel like I m seeing the events of the story out of the corner of my eye, that I can never quite get the full picture We re given hints, references to puzzle out, dialogue that both reveals and obscures, and a narration that is restrained and secretive Everything is parcele [...]


    28. Posljednja Zelaznyjeva knjiga, i u pravom smislu labu i pjev S onom istom finom ironijom koju nalazimo u Azzie Elbub trilogiji, ali s jo vi e suptilnosti i inteligencije, zelazny se poigrava s mitovima, poznatim i manje poznatim likovima, arhetipovima, i mada u samoj radnji nema velikih iznena enje, knjiga je ipak prava poslastica zaslu ena petica.


    29. Read it for the 2nd time and absolutely loved it again The literature recycling is a thing Zelazny was great in and here he did it in a funny and inventive way He borrowed some best characters the modern classic literature gave us, sparkled it with the cameo of Elder Gods and played it all with great humour and a tad of twist to it The dialogues are brilliant And you just have to love Snuff Whoever he is 5 Stars again, and I m willing to re read it in future.P.S Btw if you re a hardcore Zelazny [...]
