Four For Tomorrow by Roger Zelazny
A collection of some of Zelazny's more famous short stories. It includes 'The Furies' from 1965, 'The Graveyard Heart' from 1964, 'The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth' from 1965, 'A Rose for Ecclesiastes' from 1963. It includes an introduction by Theodore Sturgeon who points out how fantasy and science-fiction interweave in the stories in this collection.
'The Furies' is probably the best story here, with an exceptional krewe of flawed geniuses in search of the anti-hero fugitive. Sandor Sandor is the most interesting of the detectives, with a PhD from the University of Brill on the planet Dombeck, a genius in the geography of all the worlds in the inhabited galaxy and missing his legs and his right arm.
'The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth' is one of Zelazny's most famous short stories about human bait for a strange leviathan in the seas of Venus.
