This comprehensive bibliography of Zelazny's works has been published and ordering information should go up on the NESFA Press website soon. Ordering through Amazon and the like will take a few weeks longer to become active. The book is a large format trade paperback with cover art that matches the six-volume The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny so that the seven volumes form a continuous picture along their spines.

It runs 400 pages, contains over 600 cover images, and has detailed bibliographic entries for all English-language appearances of Zelazny's fiction, poetry, essays, and other works. Detailed descriptions of each book are provided so that first editions can be distinguished from later printings. The thumbnail images include the covers from every edition of Zelazny's books and from the first publications of his stories and poems in magazines, fanzines, and anthologies. The main index includes every known official, alternate, manuscript, and phantom title associated with Zelazny's works. Additional lists include interviews, Amber memorabilia, audio recordings, limited editions, fanzines, and awards. A secondary bibliography is also included which lists more than 300 essays, theses, and books that have been written about Zelazny and his writings.

Thanks for the info, Chris. It's a bit sad to think that this will probably be my last ever Zelazny purchase.

Unless someone commisions a new volume of Amber artworks. No-one has ever done it justice. I've just been looking through Florence Magnin's L'univers d'Ambre and while it's the best overall treatment, she still gets a lot wrong.

A second edition, revised to incorporate entries through late 2014, was published last month by NESFA Press. It has a different ISBN - 978-1-61037-309-8 and states "Second Edition" on the cover and spine to distinguish it from the first edition. There are many additions (old items previously overlooked as well as new ones) as well as a few corrections. Over 100 changes in total.

The NESFA Press website doesn't list it specifically yet, but it is available for order. It should go up on Amazon and others soon as well.
