Roger Zelazny (1937-1995) was an American author of science fiction and fantasy, in both novel and short story format. He is best known for his Chronicles of Amber series. His novels tended to utilize various mythologies – anything from Greek mythos to Navajo and everything inbetween. His dialogue was minimalistic, almost as if he were writing hardboiled fantasy. Roger would often explore the idea that there are an infinite amount of worlds and that any world possible to the imagination does exist.

Zelazny’s first novel was originally serialized as …And Call Me Conrad in 1965 and was later re-released as This Immortal the next year (Roger preferred the former title). He won a Hugo Award for the novel in 1966. Below is a list of Roger Zelazny’s books in order of when they were originally released:
