Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Nine Princes in Amber - Roger Zelazny The first few chapters grabbed me immediately. But the more I read, the less I cared about Corwin, his siblings or the reality that is Amber. I had trouble overcoming the psychedelic nature of the storyline and wanted to avoid flashbacks to the early 70s if at all possible. Zelazny did not convince me that the prize of Amber was worth all the bloodshed and collateral damage. The selfishness of the Princes (and Princesses) of Amber galled me.
