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.
