Roger Zelazny.

1963 sci-fi short story.


34.8 standard pages[1].

First read (22nd-23rd July 2013)Edit


As part of my paperback The Science Fiction Hall of Fame.


The last story in my readthrough of The Science Fiction Hall of Fame, I read it at work in my breaks in late July 2013.

A bit too poetic for me, I get wound up by the pretentiousness of it. Not really sure what else there was for me in it.
