Amber is the one real world, casting infinite reflections of itself -- Shadow worlds, that can be manipulated by those of royal Amberite blood. But the royal family is torn apart by jealousies and suspicion; the disappearance of the Patriach Oberon has intensified the internal conflict by leaving the throne apparently up for grabs. In a hospital on the Shadow Earth, a young man is recovering from a freak car accident; amnesia has robbed him of all his memory, even the fact that he is Corwin, Crown Prince of Amber, rightful heir to the throne -- and he is in deadly peril . . . The five books, Nine Princes in Amber, The Guns of Avalon, Sign of the Unicorn, The Hand of Oberon and The Courts of Chaos, together make up The Chronicles of Amber, Roger Zelazny's finest work of fantasy and an undisputed classic of the genre.

In a world half of light, half of darkness, where science and magic strive for dominance, there dwells a magical being who is friendly with neither side. Jack, of the realm of shadows, is a thief who is unjustly punished. So he embarks on a vendetta. He wanders through strange realms, encountering witches, vampires, and, finally, his worst enemy: the Lord of Bats. He consults his friend Morningstar, a great dark angel. He is pursued by a monstrous creature called the Borshin. But to reveal any more would be to spoil some of the mindboggling surprises Jack of Shadows has in store. First published in 1971 and long out-of-print, Jack of Shadows is one of fantasy master Roger Zelazny's most profound and mysterious books.

Although the idea of moving to a new town with the intention to live a rather unassuming, simple life seemed like an easy task, Amber Leigh's intentions couldn't have been further from her reality. Because while the seemingly idyllic coast of British Columbia seemed like the perfect place to get away from all of life's problems, Amber quickly realises that the town is home to more than just fishing boats and dead wilderness. Because although Amber has always felt different from other people, it wasn't until she moved to BC that she realised the truth: she isn't human. With her entire world turned upside down and her eyes opened to a brand new one that's been hidden from humans for centuries, Amber is forced into action to deal with these unnatural revelations and to discover how she fits into this radically different world. But while her new otherworldly life brings her love, family and companionship, there are horrors lurking in the shadows ready to pounce, setting into motion a twisted plot that wouldn't be out of place in one of Amber's favourite movies. With the fight for humanity on, Amber Leigh is the only one with the ability to step up and turn the tide - but the cost of doing so is not going to be small. In The Gift, the first book in L.H. Lucas' The Chronicles of Amber Leigh saga, readers finally get to experience humble beginnings of an entire new world full of the unexplainable and the grotesque. Although Amber thought her relocation would get her far away from the drama that she loathed so much previously, BC opens her eyes to an unravelling supernatural plot that will make her yearn for such simple human problems.

This book represents an analysis of contemporary fantasy (non-mimetic) literature in all its richness and diversity, and offers a preliminary definition of the major fields of taxonomical interest, in addition to marking some of the unmapped territories of “fantastic” fiction. In its first part, the book presents an overview of all major previous theoretical discussions of the issue, particularly those by Tzvetan Todorov, Rosemary Jackson, Darko Suvin, Brian Attebery, Marek Oziewicz and Farah Mendlesohn. The second part of the book provides an interesting comprehensive taxonomy of its own, based on the notion of supragenological types of literature, first introduced by Andrzej Zgorzelski.
