Roger Zelazny

Roger Zelazny (May 13, 1937 - June 14, 1995) was a US writer of fantasy and science fiction short stories and novels.
He won the Hugo award six times, including twice for the novels Lord of Light (1968) and ...And Call Me Conrad[?] (1966) which was later published as This Immortal[?].

Zelazny had a rare gift for conceiving and portraying worlds with plausable magic systems and powers, and supernatural beings. His captivating descriptions of the nuts and bolts of magical workings in his imagined worlds set his writing apart from otherwise similar authors. He was a prolific writer, and with the exception of the Amber novels (and Madwand and Changeling, which are related), created a completely new setting for each book.
