February Books 9) Manna from Heaven

9) Manna from Heaven, by Roger Zelazny

I confess to being a little underwhelmed by this collection. Zelazny was one of my favourite authors, but all the good stories here were ones I had read before. (And what is the point of the title? One of the stories here is "Mana from Heaven" but the extra "n" changes the meaning entirely.) It was interesting to realise that the same character pops up in "Kalifriki of the Thread" and "Come Back to the Killing Ground, Alice, My Love"; and the six short glimpses of Amber give some hope that a third series of books set in that universe would have been better than the second. But I should have waited until it came out in paperback (if it ever does).
