This said, although only one of the stories here ("Come Back to the Killing Ground, Alice, My Love") has not been published in previous collections, this piece is possibly one of Zelazny's best stories ever, which alone would make this book a worthwhile buy. The Last Defender of Camelot showcases some of Zelazny's best short story writing from throughout his career, and Silverberg's comments and introduction are an insightful and thought-provoking reminder of what was lost when Zelazny died in 1995.
Personally, I thought the famous and much lauded "Come Back to the Killing Ground, Alice my Love" while good, was an excessively hyped (rarely, if ever, a good thing) showcase of style over content. Ditto for "24 Views of Mt Fuji, by Hokusai". And "Halfjack" was bad. Not because of it's brevity, but I found the underlying premise distasteful.
The rest are all fair to excellent stories. Though for me, "For a Breath I Tarry" is his piece de resitance; a work of genius I could never expect to match. Enjoy.
Well this is a bunch of stories that are poetic, imaginative, timeless, and full of human warmth.
What a great writer he was.
