Critical Essay by Alex De Jonge

Roger Zelazny is [a] favourite writer, when he is not writing about Amber. His latest, My Name is Legion … is not, as its title might suggest, another of his splendid re-workings of mythological material. The book consists of three ingenious stories about a kind of private detective who has achieved total anonymity by erasing his particulars from the Central Data Bank. The stories are highly imaginative, concerning such matters as possibly criminal dolphins and the interplay between artificial intelligence and artificial original sin. All good stuff.
