Format: Hardcover
Zelazny's short story "A Rose for Ecclesiastes" was written at a time when Zelazny and Heinlein sounded very much alike. Zelazny presents a flawed human character (overconfident, slightly stuck-up scholar), sends him to a perfect setting (Mars, to study the Martians), has him save the world (shows Martians a way to avoid extinction, and makes them take it), and then send him for a fall (the one he loves doesn't love him). Thus, the character is seen to grow, and the flaw is corrected.
"A Rose for Ecclesiastes" can be found in "Four for Tomorrow," a collection of four of Zelazny's best short stories.

Format: Paperback
Eeeeeeh. I can not approve of this. It reminds me of Conan the Barbarian. Just in space. And with more focus on the brains than the brawn. But, of course, our narrator has brawn, because he is the savior of the entire Martian race and he has a magic penis.

So much of this story is focused on telling us how great the protagonist is. He's a linguistics master, learning new ones at frightening speed, and also an unsurpassed poet, working in whatever language he's learned as well as if it was his native tongue. He catches the eye of a beautiful Martian woman and...well, he has a magic penis. He saves the entire race with his sperm.

It's just so...hyper-masculine. I can't get behind it.

If you'e still interested, there's a free audio production available from Escape Pod.
