Barring any unforeseen delays at the printer, the first two books of the 6-volume The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny are due to be released in February in time for Boskone.

The complete painting created by Michael Whelan can now be seen at the NESFA website (The Zelazny Project). Clicking on it brings up a larger version which reveals details and characters from Zelazny's stories; I keep discovering new things every time I look at it. The artwork will be staggered from volume to volume and it wraps the spines of the jackets so that when the six volumes are displayed on a shelf, the spines form a single image.

If you click on the web pages for each of the first two volumes (links to the right-hand side of that main page) you will then see the front of the final dust jacket and table of contents for each. There are likely unfamiliar titles in there because previously unpublished as well as previously uncollected stories are included. At the moment the table of contents for each volume lists the stories and articles; the poetry isn't listed. There are 32 poems in volume 1, and 21 poems in volume 2.

The table of contents of the last 4 volumes will be posted in coming months.

Pretty Cool, Chris. Was looking for the tornadoes from Damnation Alley in the background, but haven't found them so far....;)
