1985 Zelazny-authorized interactive fiction game Nine Princes in Amber.

Moved a bunch of banker’s boxes of old files, like, college notes and junk, but found these in the process.

They were given to me either just before or just after I moved to Seattle by Bloomington, Indiana artist (and the sculptor of these pieces) David Ebbinghouse. David proposed an exchange whereby I would bend my then-considerable powers of art writing upon his career, and he would give me these.

Alas, life in the west eroded the bonds of former lives and the essay was never writ. I certainly still feel I should write it, but there’s a lifetime more art made by David today than what he’d made by 1990.
