I was astonished, though, by the pabulum lists at the end of each story explaining common words and concepts. Have we really become such an uneducated nation that the editors felt these 7th-grade-textbook-addenda were necessary to sell the books? For me, they break the mood the stories create. I doubt I will buy more of the series.
There are also articles by Zelazny and another installment in the interesting biography that helps put the short fiction in a wider context. Reading all six volumes brings it all together and is highly recommended.
The two introductory pieces, one by Brust & the other by Joe Haldeman, were fantastic. Short, to the point & gave even more depth to Zelazny, the man.
You can certainly read this or any of the books out of order, unless you're a serious scholar of his work. I'm not, but have read them in order since that's the way I got them.
As usual for this series we have masses of extras about and by Zelazny on his life and writings with more poems and articles.
It is impossible to overstate just how good this impeccably designed and edited series of books is. At the time of writing, the final two in the series are still to be published and I'll be first in line when they are.
