New Zelazny Omnibus available in Bulgaria


Смъртта и светлината, a new omnibus of Roger Zelazny‘s fiction, is now available in Bulgaria. Published by Бард, here’s the synopsis…

Сборникът съдържа следните произведения:

1. Четири истории от утре

· Вратите на лицето му, лампите на устата му
· Роза за Еклесиаста
· Фуриите
· Сърцето на гробищата

2. Господарят на светлината

3. Една нощ през самотния октомври

Странният поетичен свят на Зелазни е главозамайваща смес от забавна сатира и философски размисли. Ранните му разкази са великолепно написани – мечтателни и в същото време задълбочени. Бурният екшън „Вратите на лицето му, лампите на устата му“, емоционално разтърсващият „Роза за Еклисиаста“, смешно-сърцераздирателната басня „Фуриите“ и мрачният трагичен романс „Сърцето на гробищата“ са изумително близки до съвременната чувствителност.

Сложният, интригуващ и тайнствен роман „Господарят на светлината“, донесъл на Зелазни наградата „Хюго“ през 1968 г., пресъздава хиндуисткия пантеон с помощта на науката, хвърля светлина върху връзката между човечеството и технологиите и разказва трогателна човешка история. „Една нощ през самотния октомври“ – последната книга на Зелазни преди смъртта му – е дръзко оригинална амалгама от ужаси, хумор, мистерия и фантазия: скъпоценност, излъчваща мрачен блясък.

The omnibus includes FOUR FOR TOMORROW (a collection of four novelettes, first published in 1967), LORD OF LIGHT (1967) and A NIGHT IN THE LONESOME OCTOBER (1993).

The latter was recently published by Farrago in the UK. Here’s the English-language synopsis…

All is not what it seems.

In the murky London gloom, a knife-wielding gentleman named Jack prowls the midnight streets with his faithful watchdog Snuff – gathering together the grisly ingredients they will need for an upcoming ancient and unearthly rite. For soon after the death of the moon, black magic will summon the Elder Gods back into the world. And all manner of Players, both human and undead, are preparing to participate.

Some have come to open the gates. Some have come to slam them shut. And now the dread night approaches – so let the Game begin.

Farrago has also published Zelazny’s DOORWAYS IN THE SAND.

“През полята, гдето няма битки, няма глад, няма болка, где никой не е чудовище, где светлината е мека, чуруликат птички и ромолят поточета, где сумракът пада и води звездите като рояк светулки… и там ще живееш винаги и нивга не ще се събудиш, нивга не ще си тръгнеш… Спи в покой, що никога не си познавал — завинаги, навеки…”

Дет Морсон, определян от някои като тъмен магьосник, а от други като човек с амбиции, гледа как армиите на враговете напредват, за да го унищожат.

Дет знае, че ще изгуби, и нито драконите, нито харпиите, нито останалите чудовища, които е събрал в замъка си, ще му помогнат.
И губи.

Синът му обаче е жив и победителите знаят, че винаги ще представлява заплаха за тях. Затова трябва да бъде изпратен далече, в свят където магията е само легенда, а технологиите властват.

Там трябва да израсне като обикновен човек, а друго дете, взето от света на технологиите ще заеме мястото му. Но Равновесието вече е нарушено.

И е въпрос на време повелителят на магиите да се изправи срещу новия господар на технологията, за да решат съдбата на света.

First published in 1980, here’s the English-language synopsis…

The people had long suffered under Det Morson’s power. When at last, the wizard Mor joined the fight, Det and his infamous Rondoval castle were destroyed. But the victory was not complete, for the conquerors found a baby amidst the rubble: Det’s son, Pol. Unwilling to kill the child, Mor took him to a world where the ways of magic were considered mere legends — a world called Earth.

Amber: A kingdom beyond imagination — where brother fights brother to succeed to the throne…

When Corwin awoke in the hospital he remembered very little. Except that he’d been in an automobile accident that wasn’t an accident at all. Then he discovered his name and the fact that his strength was superhuman. And that was enough to send him on a journey that started in New York and swiftly flung him into the fantastic realm of Amber where eight brothers fought for the right to be crowned king. For Corwin was the ninth Prince — his royal colours, black and silver — who had been exiled to the shadow world of Earth. Now Corwin had returned to claim the throne from his sworn enemies, his own flesh and blood…

Планета Земля, отравленная радиацией и истерзанная жестокими войнами, оставлена людьми ради новых, прекрасных миров. Немногие оставшиеся вернулись в античную эпоху — эпоху богов и героев, жутких чудовищ и волшебных артефактов. Вернуть историю на круги своя, а человечество на родную планету способен только он, Конрад, этот бессмертный…

“…and call me Conrad!” Such was the only comment that Conrad Nomikos would make on his life-history, an enigma that faded out in lost records and obscurity a few decades back. There were those who said he had once had a different name, that of the liberator of Earth, the man who had fought the star-empire of Vega to a standoff. And some even said that he had had other names, stretching back through the centuries….

But Conrad wouldn’t talk about his past. For the future was at stake now — the future of Earth and her peoples, as the Vegans returned on a mission which would decide for all time the place of Earth among the worlds of the stars.

NINE PRINCES IN Hungary…


NINE PRINCES IN AMBER first novel in Roger Zelazny‘s classic fantasy series, Chronicles of Amber is out now in Hungary! Published by Édisvíz as AMBER KILENC HERCEGE, here’s the synopsis…

A fantasy irodalom egyik legimpozánsabb alakja, az összehasonlíthatatlan Roger Zelazny számtalan díjat kapott alkotásaiért – köztük hat Hugo- és három Nebula-díjat – legendás írói karrierje során. Több mint ötven könyve közül azonban vitathatatlanul az Amber krónikái volt a legkiemelkedőbb irodalmi sorozata. Az Amber krónikái tíz könyvből álló történet, amely egy lángelme fantáziájának és elbeszélő képességének olyan darabja, ami fantasy írók generációit ihlette meg, köztük Neil Gaimant és George R. R. Martint.

AMBER az egyetlen valódi világ, aminek minden más világ – köztük a mi Földünk is – csak árnyékvalósága. Amber ott lüktet főhősünk, Corwin szívében és vérében, annak ellenére, hogy századokra száműzték erre az árnyékbolygóra, amit mi Földnek hívunk. Innen hazatérni azonban nem egyszerű az amnéziában szenvedő hercegnek, hiszen nem könnyű hazatérésről van szó, hanem egy trónörökös harcáról Amber trónjáért egy multidimenzionális világban. Az emberfeletti erővel rendelkező Corwin hercegnek meg kell harcolnia a többi örökössel, akik veszélyes és fondorlatos gátakat gördítenek felemelkedése útjába. Az Amber koronájáig vezető út a képzeletet felülmúló valóságoktól, démoni orgyilkosoktól és horrorisztikus tapasztalásoktól hemzseg. Egy földi kórházban ébredve hősünk arra sem emlékszik, ki is ő valójában, honnan jött és milyen körülmények áldozata lett. Amint lassan világossá válik számára, hogy ő Oberonnak, Amber királyának fia, az is körvonalazódni látszik, hogy ezzel együtt egy párhuzamos univerzumok felett uralkodó királyság jogos örököse is.

NINE PRINCES IN AMBER, the first of ten novels in the series, was first published in 1970. Here’s the English-language synopsis…

Awakening in an Earth hospital unable to remember who he is or where he came from, Corwin is amazed to learn that he is one of the sons of Oberon, King of Amber, and is the rightful successor to the crown in a parallel world.

Amber, the one real world, wherein all others, including our own Earth, are but Shadows. Amber burns in Corwin’s blood. Exiled on Shadow Earth for centuries, the prince is about to return to Amber to make a mad and desperate rush upon the throne. From Arden to the blood-slippery Stairway into the Sea, the air is electrified with the powers of Eric, Random, Bleys, Caine, and all the princes of Amber whom Corwin must overcome. Yet, his savage path is blocked and guarded by eerie structures beyond imagining; impossible realities forged by demonic assassins and staggering horrors to challenge the might of Corwin’s superhuman fury.

Three new Chronicles of Amber collections available in Russia…


Continuing the flood of new Russian editions of Roger Zelazny‘s novels, today we want to draw your attention to three collections that have recently been published by Эксмо. The first, pictured above, is a new complete Chronicles of Amber anthology. Here’s the synopsis…

Вечное противостояние Порядка и Хаоса, каждый из которых порождает миллионы отражений, миллионы Теней, населенных бесчисленными существами… Словами самого Р. Желязны: “Амберский цикл – своего рода комментарий к моим размышлениям о природе реальности и к восприятию этой реальности людьми”. В известной мере Амберский цикл предвосхитил идею, которая обрела статус культовой с выходом фильма “Матрица” братьев Вачовски: Земля – не более чем иллюзия (Тень) некоей высшей, истинной реальности.

В издании, которое вы, уважаемый читатель, держите в руках, впервые все десять романов Амберского цикла собраны под одной обложкой.

Here’s the English-language synopsis…

Amber is the one real world, casting infinite reflections of itself – shadow worlds, which can be manipulated by those of royal Amberite blood. But the royal family is torn apart by jealousies and suspicion; the disappearance of the patriarch Oberon has intensified the internal conflict by leaving the throne apparently for grabs; and amnesia has robbed Corwin, Crown Prince of Amber his memory – even the fact that he is rightful heir to the throne.

The other new releases are a two-part collection of the full series. Here are the covers…
