The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny, 6 volume set with bibliography

An exhastive collection of all of Roger Zelazney's short fiction and poetry. All covers were created from a single painting with elements from Zelazney's stories commissioned for this series. When all volumes are aligned on a shelf, their spines combine to form the painting. Different color blocks on the covers distinguish the volumes from each other at a glance.
