Filk Friday: Patterns of Amber

Patterns of Amber is based on The Chronicles of Amber, a series by Roger Zelazny. I've never read the books, but the song has had me curious for a long time. Now that I've found the wiki on the series, the song makes much more sense, but I'm not sure if I'd like the books. Sometimes the filk is better than the stories they were based on. The song focuses on Corwin of Amber, the main character of the first five books.

It's interesting how a story in one medium can be appealing but in another medium it's not as intruiging. I feel that way about certain genres.

I get the feeling that I'd enjoy this more if I knew anything about the series, but the music is beautiful.

The wiki links explain most of what it means, but I can't tell you any more than that. I may pick up the first book some time just to check it out.
