Chris Kovacs Zelazny Essay in The New York Review of Science Fiction
As the subject line says, Chris Kovacs has an Argo/Zelazny essay. Rather than clumsily paraphrase him, here are his own words:
I have a new essay in the May 2013 issue of The New York Review of Science Fiction. It's titled "The reality and mythology enveloping Zelazny’s Lord of Light, the FBI, the CIA, and Ben Affleck’s Argo." In that essay I discuss and debunk a number of myths about Zelazny, the novel, the movie, the theme park, the FBI raid, the CIA's use of the script, and the recent movie Argo which altered facts and ignored others.
The pdf of the issue can be purchased for $2.99 at this link:
I wouldn't be surprised if the nyrsf.com website releases it as a free, featured article. But in the meantime the pdf is the only way to get it.
