View Full Version : New Amber Novel

11 April 2002, 03:05 PM
As this site has informed me under Online Amber news http://www.amberdiceless.com/ there is a new Amber series due out this September by John Gregory Betancourt, titled: New Roger Zelazny's Amber : The Dawn of Amber Book 1: Nine Princes of Chaos.
With this news on top of the recent verification that Sci-Fi Channel is producing the 4-hour Chronicles of Amber Mini-series for the Fall, I have to cringe.
Don't get me wrong, I am not knocking the author of the new book, but Roger had a certain unique vision and that vision and his perception and knowledge of mythology made Amber as much as Roger's narrative flair.
I will read the book. Unfortunately, I hope it proves me wrong.
The only icing that could make this sour cake complete would be learning Erick Wujcik lost the Amber RPG license to Wizards and learning there will be an Amber D20. Gods, I hope not!

Pardon me for asking, but what is Amber?
