Library Journal Review

The first two volumes of a six-volume series bringing together the writings of one of sf's most dazzling and eclectic authors contain entries from the early stages of his career, which extends from the mid-1950s until his death in 1995. Threshold displays Zelazny's earliest endeavors, including "Mr. Fuller's Revolt," his first paid story, written in his teens. Power & Light contains stories from the experimental 1960s, as well as his first novel, .And Call Me Conrad. Most libraries should add these important titles as well as succeeding volumes.
