Good-bye and hello, as always:



I know of only two biographies of Zelazny; Theodore Krulik's Roger Zelazny, and and Jane Lindskold's similarly titled Roger Zelazny. Krulik's has some biographical information, and a lot of critical review of Zelazny's works up through 1986, when the bio was published. If you can find a copy of the book, I'd reccommend getting it; it's interesting, and has been a big help in setting up this page. I haven't yet read Lindskold's book, but I'll comment on it once I have.


Zelazny was the 1994 ICFA Guest of Honor. The ICFA is the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts.

Zelazny's Works


Would anyone be interested in writing a series of short reviews/summaries of Zelazny's works? If so, drop me some mail.

The graphs come from... The Internet Top 100 SF/Fantasy List

This is a nifty little list maintained by Tristrom Cooke. You can rate books and see which come out on top. (Just go visit for more info, and throw in your votes for Zelazny's books while you're there.) I used the weekly top 100 list, along with the extended lists published every five weeks, to make graphs of the progress of Zelazny books. Eventually I'll have a comprehensive graph you can check out, but for now just the individual book charts are located in each book's page.
