While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction. 




Finished: Nine Princes in Amber

Nine Princes in Amber - Roger Zelazny

It's a shame when a re-read doesn't live up to your memory of the book.  I devoured The Nine Princes in Amber and the rest of the series when in college, one of many books from the UMass Science Fiction Club library enjoyed in the basement of the UMass Campus Center.  I re-read it recently and it seemed dated and a bit thin, but it was also re-read while recovering from illness, which can make everything seem pallid. While the star rating is tepid, I still recommend that folks give the series a try if they want that classic touch.
