Product Description

Essef - James Wiley is an "ordinary" 14-year-old who has lost his scientist father to a parallel world in the darkbands. With the help of Becky, his sister with magical powers, Barry the exchange student and Uncle George, the werewolf, James goes in search of his parent. But he must take care: for if there just happens to be a full moon at the wrong moment, James's itchy palms might lead him into trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Light vs. Dark story 1 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The worst thing about this story is the fact that the late author never wrote a sequal. A Dark Travelling involves a boy who gets extra-hairy during full moons, his adopted sister who is a witch, his brother who lives in a castle and the exchange student who lives with them, having been raised as a trained assasin. They are part of a group of families which together controlls the secret interdimensional commerce between parallel worlds, and who support a revolution on a Darkband... an alternate reality where forces of Dark have taken over. This was a fascinating novel for Zelazny's younger fans, with visible influences from A Wrinkle in Time and the Dark is Rising sequence

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 3 May 2013
By Greg Fakenameeson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I picked this up originally because it is a Zelazny book. I don't read a lot of YA novels, which I think this classifies as, but I made an exception for the author's sake. It is really good. Zelazny uses several new (at the time) inter-dimensional travel concepts, and some interesting political-morality issues, and puts them together in an exciting read. Is it correct for a civilization (or country or whatever) to interfere with the development of another civilization (or country or whatever)? Suppose that the developing civilization was being coerced by an "evil", third civilization. Is it correct for a Good-aligned people to intervene on the behalf of a less developed civilization, in order to prevent another civilization from interfering? It makes some good arguments both ways, and should be read by most young adults, and most adults for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prescient, poetic Zelazny 25 Jan 2013
By V Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Zelazny was beautifully prescient with this novella on the dangers & advantages of travelling between alternate worlds. Very topical in the present day. Not terse, yet you want more of this cosmos. & poetic as always.

I got A Dark Travelling because I am a fan. Must have! & the book itself was even better than I thought it would be. I recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Recommended For Adults 12 Dec 2013
By Judah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I liked the seven books of amber and other works by this author, so I tracked this one down and gave it a try. I did not like it. It's book two of a trilogy, and lacks some background. Second, it's young adult orientated, a novella, and alternates three main characters. That means the plot isn't deep or extreme in any fashion, except possibility the 'what if' aspect involving alternate worlds, but again, as a long time sci-fi reader, I've seen it done better elsewhere (Chalker, Handleman, Sliders the TV show, etc).

This might be a great book for grades 6 - 8, but adults should consider reading elsewhere.
