Long ago, the Dragon Gods founded the land of Yores. They drove out the monsters which lived within it and gave the land to their followers, who thanked the Dragon Gods and pledged to worship them for eternity. As time went on, however, the Yoresians grew proud and ceased worshipping the Dragon Gods, trusting instead in their magic. Thus, the Dragon Gods abandoned the Yoresians, which has turned out to be a mistake, for now the land of Yores is under attack from a powerful evil and the Yoresians cannot stand against it. Twin siblings Sarzen and Helnia, a warrior and a mage, set out to find the Dragon Gods, who they believe are their people's only hope of survival. But the quest ahead of them is fraught with dangers they can't even imagine, including a revelation about themselves that will shake their view of themselves and their leaders forever.

Sarzen Alnem and his friends have been desperately battling their way through the Cursed Lands, seeking any clue to the whereabouts of the missing Dragon Gods. Yet their quest seems increasingly fruitless until they run into a creature that claims that it can help them find the Dragon Gods, but only if they listen to its advice. Having no choice, Sarzen and his friends accept the creature's aid and begin searching for the hymn that will help them save their country. Upon arriving back in her city, Helnia Alnem finds herself branded a criminal by the corrupt and traitorous government, who try to arrest her to keep her from spreading the truth of their betrayal. Allying with a small group of rebels, Helnia must expose the government's betrayal to the people before the city falls to the hordes of monsters that would like nothing less than the total destruction of their society. But even if Sarzen and Helnia succeed in their quests, a dark truth about their true nature may shatter their relationships with their friends forever.

Challenging convention with the SF nonconformist Roger Zelazny combined poetic prose with fearless literary ambition to become one of the most influential science fiction writers of the 1960s. Yet many critics found his later novels underachieving and his turn to fantasy a disappointment. F. Brett Cox surveys the landscape of Zelazny's creative life and contradictions. Launched by the classic 1963 short story "A Rose for Ecclesiastes," Zelazny soon won the Hugo Award for Best Novel with ...And Call Me Conrad and two years later won again for Lord of Light. Cox looks at the author's overnight success and follows Zelazny into a period of continued formal experimentation, the commercial triumph of the Amber sword and sorcery novels, and renewed acclaim for Hugo-winning novellas such as "Home Is the Hangman" and "24 Views of Mt. Fuji, by Hokusai." Throughout, Cox analyzes aspects of Zelazny's art, from his preference for poetically alienated protagonists to the ways his plots reflected his determined individualism. Clear-eyed and detailed, Roger Zelazny provides an up-to-date reconsideration of an often-misunderstood SF maverick.
