    More Information:

    Roger Zelazny. The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth and Other Stories. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, 1971. First edition, review copy with two publisher's slips laid in. Octavo. [x], 229, [230: blank] pages. Publisher's dark blue cloth, spine lettered in silver, in original dust jacket. A fine copy in fine dust jacket.

    A collection of "fifteen bright, slick and sometimes moving SF and fantasy tales, all from the 1960s. Includes the Nebula award-winning title story (1965) and the equally celebrated "A Rose for Ecclesiastes" (1963), both previously collected in the paperback volume Four for Tomorrow (1967). Other standouts are "The Keys to December" and "This Moment of the Storm" (both 1966). These are the works which made Zelazny famous -- action-adventure stories, rather weak on ideas but written with force and style." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 104. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1307. Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 583-86.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
