5.0 A Night in the Lonesome October
Half of the fun in most of Zelazny's books is to figure out what is going on. For this reason I have to be as obscure as possible.

3.0 A Night in the Lonesome October
This is an odd book, even for Zelazny. I like the illustrations in every chapter, and also the spareness of the prose. (By this time in his career Zelazny was an old hand at "tell only what you have to in order to get the job done," and it shows.) Additionally, if you're looking for an unusual ...
