    Across the worlds of Shadow, Corwin, Prince of blood royal, heir to the throne of Amber, gathers his forces for an assault that will yield up to him the crown that is rightfully his. But, a growing darkness of his own doing threatens Corwin's plans, an evil that stretches to the heart of the perfect kingdom itself where the demonic forces of Chaos mass to annihilate Amber and all who would rule there.

    If you could sum up The Guns of Avalon in three words, what would they be?

    Corwin has always been one of my literary heroes, in a similar vein to the reluctant heroes of Moorcock's work and to Howard's Conan.

    As the saga continues Corwin has the opportunity to revisit the past as reconstructured by his brother; rather than wallow in the regret of the past he sees how his brother Benedict has made good Corwin's mistakes. And so Corwin's journey continues, until corwin can grasp his dream.


    Have you listened to any of Alessandro Juliani’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr Juliani's performance in Nine Princes in Amber was inspiring and here he continues to deliver the story as though it were real life rather than fiction from a truly great author.

    Amber is the one real world, of which all others including our own Earth are but Shadows. Amber burns in Corwin's blood. Exiled on Shadow Earth for centuries, the prince is about to return to Amber to make a mad and desperate rush upon the throne.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nine Princes in Amber to be better than the print version?

    Having read the Amber series as each book was published, I have read them all many times, each time seeing something new. This rendition is better than reading the book myself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Corwin has always been one of my literary heroes, in a similar vein to the reluctant heroes of Moorcock's work and to Howard's Conan. But Corwin's time on earth and his suffering takes us through a journey of his desire for the throne and his jealousy of his siblings becoming one man's development of compassion and duty.


    What about Alessandro Juliani’s performance did you like?

    Mr Juliani's performance gives the listener a variety of voices to suit the characters, always an important point for me. He brings to life not just the characters but the settings not matter how mundane or exoticv they are.
