    "I was always a fan of Zelazny's imaginative writing style, although it's a little hard to describe. Fortunately The Last Defender of Camelot is the perfect example of what I'm talking about. It's a kind of science fiction that really was only popular briefly in the late 80s, but nonetheless changed the way people approached the genre."
