I enjoyed it immensely.
Zelazny's short stories were my favorites for close to 18 years but somehow missed Amber. Ran across a copy of the whole series in one big ole book at a library a couple of years back and tore through it like a redneck through balogna on wonder bread.
Thanks for mentioning the prequels, I've found my next reading material now! [:briggin:]
The 80's brought about a style change in sci-fi writing that seemed to change alot of the older series. The Corwin - Merlin reflects that imo. I much preferred the older writing. Herbert's Dune went through similar moves, but part of his change could be attributed to the slow death of his wife (changing from male to female lead characters).
don't see how you could adequitely represent Chaos in any computer game, much less an MMORPG
The first time I entered to fight a Prime Avatar one of my first thoughts was that the scenery reminded me of Zelazny's Chaos. As far as backgrounds go, I think that would be a start.
If you haven't picked up Bring Me the Head of Prince Charming, it's a worthy read.
