Anyway, there are some cool ideas like bent space storage, skull liner computers, and AI's and other techniques the vacationers use to live in a world of total indulgence. At the beginning of each chapter, a story told in the form of a myth, or encounter with a god, is told from the perspective of the local storyteller describing an encounter with one of the "gods"
I found it randomly at a used bookstore and am glad to have read it. If you see it, pick it up!
mostly they relaxed into a nice, slow, 400-year vacation. Until one of
the oldest, meanest, weirdest immortals decides he'd really like to rule
a galactic empire...
Fortunately the old weirdo is pretty dumb, and is brought to heel by a
plucky tribesman and a sneaky immortal. One could quibble with some of
the story logic, but that seems pointless in a book that so nicely
accomplishes its goal of entertaining the reader for a few hours.
Anyway, if you like Norton & Zelazny, you should look for DW.
