About this item
In a world half of light, half of darkness, where science and magic strive for dominance, there dwells a magical being who is friendly with neither side. Jack, of the realm of shadows, is a thief who is unjustly punished. So he embarks on a vendetta. He wanders through strange realms, encountering witches, vampires, and, finally, his worst enemy: the Lord of Bats. He consults his friend Morningstar, a great dark angel. He is pursued by a monstrous creature called the Borshin. But to reveal any more would be to spoil some of the mindboggling surprises Jack of Shadows has in store.First published in 1971and long out-of-print, Jack of Shadows is one of fantasy master Roger Zelazny's most profound and mysterious books. Nominated for both a Hugo Award and a Locus Award, this dark and haunting classic deserves to take its place on the same shelf as the imaginative masterpieces of Borges, Kafka, and the Strugatsky brothers.
