"My Name Is Legion" is terrific! It's interesting in that these three stories anticipate the whole "internet/government has your name on a list" thing. Zelazny could really write taut, thriller-type stuff. Although it's high fantasy, there's also a very noir approach to the treatment of family relations in the original "Amber" series as well.

All the Best,
