Roger Zelazny’s Chaos and Amber, by John Betancourt

Second paragraph of third chapter:

Aber suddenly laughed, then reached into the air, felt around for a second, and plucked a large white towel seemingly from nothingness.

Second of the prequels to Zelazny’s great Amber series, and it is a step up from the first volume. Oberon and his recently acquired father Dworkin (and recently acquired brother Aber) battle their way through family feuds at the Courts of Chaos to head towards the creation of Amber itself (which will presumably happen in the third volume). It’s still rather flat compared to the originals, but at least it does not go on too long. You can get it here.

This was my top unread book acquired in 2016. Next on that pile is The Harem Of Aman Akbar, by Elizabeth Scarborough.
