Book Review: Jack of Shadows by Roger Zelazny

Jack of Shadows
Rediscovered Classics Series
Paperback | Kindle
By Roger Zelazny
Foreword by Joe Haldeman
Chicago Review Press
Release date: May 1, 2016

Originally published in 1971, Roger Zelazny‘s long out-of-print sci-fi/fantasy novel Jack of Shadows is a hidden gem amongst the author’s works.

Zelazny, who passed away in 1995, is best known for his 10-book The Chronicles of Amber saga, and thanks to the movie Argo, his novel Lord Of Light has gotten more attention in recent years.
