By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Nine Princes in Amber - Roger Zelazny My first Zelazny–I ended up liking it quite a lot. I could see echoes in Stardust–the princes fighting for the crown, I think. Also loved Corwin’s voice, which manages to be both distant and engaging. I wasn’t always wild about the way the tone went back and forth between very archaic and contemporary. I get what Zelazny was trying to do, but I’m not sure it always worked. [Jan 2011]
