Isle of the Dead/Eye of Cat, the posthumously released volume of two earlier novels by Roger Zelazny, the Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of the Chronicles of Amber series, pairs the witty 1969 Isle with the elegant 1982 Cat. The first is a tale of a supernatural battle of good vs. evil centuries into the future, while in the second, a former alien hunter, in exchange for the help of an alien he long ago captured, must agree to a new hunt with the roles reversed.

This is the fourth title in iBooks' reprint series of Zelazny's works. Isle of the Dead (1969) features Francis Shadow, a centuries-old man kept young through science. His advanced age has allowed him to accumulate enough wealth to own a planet, where he is considered a god by the world's natives, who believe he has absorbed the powers of their ancient ancestors. His abilities does he really have any? are tested when another planet-owning ruler challenges his dominance. Eye of the Cat (1982) takes a twist on the hunter turned hunted. William Blackhorse Singer is hired to protect an alien diplomat, then enlists the assistance of a shape-shifter he captured years earlier. The creature will only help on the condition that it gets a chance to try to trap Singer once the mission is completed.
