From the Back Cover
On a devilish sabbatical in Europe, Azzie discovers that morality plays are all the rage. He decides to strike back by producing an "immorality play", in which seven nondescript human pilgrims will be allowed by magic to attain their hearts' desires. But the forces of Good are determined to close the play before it opens. New characters suddenly start roaming the stage, such as a Grateful Dead-listening Cyclops, and Azzie's own protagonists begin changing their hearts' desires on the slightest whim. This is one theatrical production that could do without an angel - and there's even worse news waiting in the wings...
About the Author
Roger Zelazny burst onto the SF scene in the early 1960s with a series of dazzling and groundbreaking short stories. He won his first of six Hugo Awards for Lord of Light, and soon after produced the first book of his enormously popular Amber series, Nine Princes in Amber. In addition to his Hugos, he went on to win three Nebula Awards over the course of a long and distinguished career. He died on June 14, 1995.

Yes! First Zelazny I ever read was Bring Me the Head of Prince Charming and it knocked my socks off, but I only recently found out there were sequels and they do not disappoint!

never new someone could have as much fun writing a book.
Not my cup of tea. Maybe yours.Reviewed in the United States on 6 November 2011
I am a dedicated Zelazny fan; have been since I was a kid. I loved most of his books, until I hit this one. To me, it is just too precious and forced. He came up with great ideas, way before his time, the way a really excellent Scifi/fantasy writer does. His imaginative and delightful phraseology just fights to get through this one. I got through it, but had to struggle with it. Will keep it, because his lesser writing is better than most writers' good work. Have not read the other reviews, but someone probably provided a synopsis. This was not my cup of tea, but Amber and Coils were a whole banquet.
