I really liked the first half or 2/3 of this book. It melded some complex virtual reality concepts with old school myths and did so with a lot of atmosphere, style and humor. By the end of the book, however, those style elements were gone, and the last 50 pages devolved into characters summarizing plot points (and character sketches) at each other. Dialogue doesn't get much more expository. On the whole it was still worth reading, though.

Philip Scott Zelazny never finished this book and the change in authorship results in a substantial anti-climax. I loved it anyway for the sheer exuberance & manic inventiveness of Zelazny's writing and can only regret that he never managed to complete it himself.
