Recently I felt like it was time to re-read Zelazny’s “Amber”.
I got a copy of the giant, unwieldy omnibus, and put marks on the side of the pages so I could tell where the hell I was in the overall saga.
It took me about a half a month, but today I finished it. The Merlin books sure are the middle series; they barely finish themselves, and open up a huge window for the third series Zelazny never wrote...

This morning I put down the
Amber omnibus to warm some bread to make a sandwich. Picked up the book again, read some more. Got up when the timer went off, made my sandwich.
When I picked up the book to continue reading while I ate, it was right at the beginning of the truce-and-dinner scene in chapters 1 and 2 of “Knight of Shadows”.
I did not alter the pace of my eating or my reading. But I ended up working on the last bite of my sandwich just as Merlin, Mandor, and Jasra finished their meal and got back to the plot.
I just ordered a stool that I hope is the right height for my desk. Should be here in the middle of the week.
This has a good chance of dispelling a lot of my current depression. by finally making it easy for me to stay at my desk for long periods of time drawing. When I don't draw enough, I get sadder and sadder and sadder, and I have not been able to draw enough since the pandemic began.
