Présentation de l'éditeur

The Last Defender of Camelot is a collection of breathtaking stories that showcase the incredible abilities of several authors. Edited and with an introduction by award-winning author Robert Silverberg, it includes such tales as For a Breath I Tarry, and Halfjack. It also features the Hugo Award-winning 24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai, Permafrost, and Home is the Hangman.

From Publishers Weekly

Though SF "master of prose technique" and "paragon of the storytelling art" (in the introductory words of Robert Silverberg, himself a certified luminary) Roger Zelazny died in 1995, collections of his work appear on shelves with pleasing regularity. The Last Defender of Camelot, the fifth in the series of new Zelazny editions, offers readers 11 of what Silverberg has deemed his best stories, including "24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai," which earned him one of his six Hugos, and 1992's "Come Back to the Killing Ground, Alice, My Love," which has not been previously collected.


About the Author

Roger Zelazny was a three-time Nebula Award and six-time Hugo Award-winning author of science fiction and fantasy classics, including the short stories "24 Views of Mount Fuji, by Hokusai," "Permafrost," and "Home is the Hangman." Zelazny was the bestselling author of the ten-volume Chronicles of Amber series of fantasy novels, as well as the novels Lord of Light, and Psychoshop (written with Alfred Bester). Zelazny's novel Damnation Alley served as the basis for the 1972 cult film of the same name, starring Jan Michael Vincent and George Peppard.

Biographie de l'auteur

Zelazny wrote many novels, short stories, and novellas, including Nebula and Hugo Award winners 24 VIEWS OF MOUNT FUJI, BY HOKUSAI, PERMAFROST and HOME IS THE HANGMAN.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A hacked version of the classic anthology 25 juin 2002
Par H. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a huge fan of the author and the original release of this brilliant short story collection, I am extremely disappointed in the new release. HUNT DOWN THE ORIGINAL. The new version omits all of Zelazny's forewords and, more damning, it actually omits some of the better stories found in the original collection. Silverburg mentions "Horsemen!" in the introduction, then the story is strangely absent. This is a travesty.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Bad editing: avoid Ebook like the plague. 13 avril 2014
Par Paul Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com

NB: This review refers to the Kindle version published by ibooks in March '14.

Yes, the stories are great - or they would be if they were complete. One story has the end entirely missing, and I've spotted a couple of other places where things seem to be missing just browsing through. Until and unless someone does some serious fixing, don't waste your money on the Kindle version of this book. I just wish I'd read the other review warning about this problem before purchase.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of Kindle version -- editing issues 31 mars 2014

Zelazny was one of the truly great SF talents from the last half of the 20th century and this collection brings together some excellent short material.

Unfortunately, I can’t at this time (31 March 2014) recommend buying the Kindle version of this book. After doing no more than skimming a few stories, I noticed that the end of one (“For a Breath I Tarry”) was truncated (probably missing the last few paragraphs) and part of the first sentence was missing from the very next one (“Engine at Heartspring’s Center”). I notified Amazon of the defect, but it makes me wonder just how many other such errors are scattered throughout the text.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good new selection with an old title 18 novembre 2003
Par L. Stearns Newburg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This new collection of Zelazny stories, selected by Robert Silverberg, is a good one. It contains 3 of his stronger stories from earlier collections made by Zelazny himself: "For A Breath I Tarry," "The Last Defender of Camelot," and "24 Views of Mt. Fuji."

The book also contains several other worthy stories to create a collection that spans Zelazny's career. I suspect length issues caused the selection to be limited to only 11 stories. Still, as a long-time reader of Zelazny's work since the '60s, I think he would have been better represented if I Books could have made the collection bigger. New readers of Zelazny can't easily get a feeling for the magnitude of his accomplishments with such a small selection.

The absence of "He Who Shapes" and "Damnation Alley," for instance, is to be regretted. Still, the collection is good overall. New readers who wish to read more of Zelazny's work will simply need to scour 2nd hand bookstores.

Another, somewhat irksome problem is that the collection name, _The Last Defender of Camelot_, matches that of a collection that Zelazny published himself back in 1980. That collection was probably one of his 2 or 3 best, and it was also quite large. Giving this collection the same name seems an ill-considered choice, and it will result in some confusion that should have been avoided. Most regrettable, but oh, well. At least these stories are available again, and that is a plus.

Addendum 2011: The NESFA editions of the complete stories of Zelazny now satisfy the needs of people who want to read everything in the order that it was written in. Collections like this one are still useful for introducing readers to Zelazny's work.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Sad Re-collection 18 avril 2014
Par AllanL5 - Publié sur Amazon.com

This used to be one of my favorite SF collections. Beautiful stories, very moving. Sadly, the Kindle version of "For A Breath I Tarry" is missing the last page of that story, and the first page of the next story. Extremely frustrating experience, to come to the resolution of a lovely story, and then have the last words missing. Here's a clue -- it doesn't end with "He laughed.". Don't people apply Quality Assurance to this sort of thing?
I sincerely hope this will be fixed, and fixed soon. I resent paying $7 for a Kindle edition which is incomplete, when for $1 or less I could have bought an old paperback having everything I remembered.
