Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber televised

I have to confess I’m not usually a fan of high/epic fantasy, but I make an exception for Roger Zelazny’s Chronicles of Amber series, where the quasi-medieval world of Amber overlaps with our own and a host of shady worlds in between. It’s very imaginative and a lot of fun, and with interesting motifs such as the tarot-like pack of cards that can summon the members of the Court of Amber, the mental powers that can shift or recreate reality in order to move between worlds, and the Machiavellian intrigues and shifts of power amongst the dysfunctional royal family. So I’m pleased to see that the series is being adapted for TV–see here for details.
