Overview

The second in a six-volume series, Volume 2: Power & Light covers the mid 1960s, Zelazny's most prolific period, where he continued to incorporate mainstream literary qualities and added a wealth of mythological elements into powerful stories such as "The Furies," "For a Breath I Tarry," "This Moment of the Storm," "Comes Now the Power," "Auto-Da-Fé," and the Hugo-winning novel ...And Call Me Conrad. The stories in this series are enriched by editors' notes and Zelazny's own words, taken from his many essays, describing why he wrote the stories and what he thought about them in retrospect.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The first two volumes of a six-volume series bringing together the writings of one of sf's most dazzling and eclectic authors contain entries from the early stages of his career, which extends from the mid-1950s until his death in 1995. Threshold displays Zelazny's earliest endeavors, including "Mr. Fuller's Revolt," his first paid story, written in his teens. Power & Light contains stories from the experimental 1960s, as well as his first novel, ...And Call Me Conrad. Most libraries should add these important titles as well as succeeding volumes.
