About the Author:

Zelazny wrote many novels, short stories, and novellas, including Nebula and Hugo Award winners "24 Views of Mount Fuji, by Hokusai", "Permafrost" and "Home is the Hangman".

From Library Journal:

This is the fourth title in iBooks' reprint series of Zelazny's works. Isle of the Dead (1969) features Francis Shadow, a centuries-old man kept young through science. His advanced age has allowed him to accumulate enough wealth to own a planet, where he is considered a god by the world's natives, who believe he has absorbed the powers of their ancient ancestors. His abilities does he really have any? are tested when another planet-owning ruler challenges his dominance. Eye of the Cat (1982) takes a twist on the hunter turned hunted. William Blackhorse Singer is hired to protect an alien diplomat, then enlists the assistance of a shape-shifter he captured years earlier. The creature will only help on the condition that it gets a chance to try to trap Singer once the mission is completed.

Descrizione libro Rapp & Whiting (Andre Deutsch), London, 1970. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. First Edition (British). Faint water stain to inside front cover, small (1cm) rip on bottom front cover, minor bumping to top of spine, otherwise clean, tight and fine. Isle of the Dead is a science fiction novel by Roger Zelazny published in 1969. It was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1969, and won the French Prix Apollo in 1972. The title refers to the several paintings by Swiss-German painter Arnold Böcklin. In the novel, Francis Sandow refers to ¿that mad painting by Boecklin, The Isle of the Dead.¿ Böcklin created at least five paintings with that title, each depicting an oarsman and a standing figure in a small boat, crossing dark water toward a forbidding island. A later Ace books edition featured a cover painting by Dean Ellis that was deliberately reminiscent of Böcklin¿s work. As to the novel's inspiration, Zelazny noted, ¿This was a spin-off from the novelette I did called ¿This Moment of the Storm.¿ Actually, it wasn¿t the guy I was interested in, at first. I wanted somebody that was born in the twentieth century, who had made it aboard one of these generation starships where he¿d been frozen and spent generations getting to this new planet which proved habitable. By the time he got there, they¿d invented a faster-than-light drive, because several centuries had gone by and they¿d become more sophisticated. Earth had much higher technology, and he had the means of going back fast if he wanted to, but he didn¿t. He wasn¿t sure he was happy on the world he¿d reached, though, and decided to go out and try a few others, since it was easy to do. There were still time dilation effects and, through making a few sharp investments here and there, with so much time passing, he became quite wealthy. He also happened to become the oldest human in the galaxy, and because of the fancy new medicine he was in very good shape. He also just happened to have been through the initiation ritual which would make him a god in this other religion, even though he didn¿t believe in it wholeheartedly. But it was the concept of the big expanse of time that interested me.". Codice libro della libreria 001045
