As a totally wannabe writer, I have always styled myself after Zelazny. Here is a man who can create an entire world, put you inside the minds of its people, paint it for you and take you on a journey all in less than 500 words. From the Amber series to Doorways in the stand, his works spanned the entire sci fi to fantasy genre.
Here was an author who could say more in less words than just about any other author I’ve ever read. It was what fascinated and captivated me about his style and why I attempt to adopt aspects of that style for myself.
I want to paint the world concisely with my words.
