His arrival in the sf world in , at the same time as Samuel R Delany , Thomas M Disch and Ursula K Le Guin , marked that year as a milestone in what seemed at the time to be the inevitable maturing of sf into a complex and sophisticated literature, whose language might finally match its intermittent hubris. Though unlike Delany and Disch he was not significantly connected to the British New Wave , Zelazny became a leading and representative figure of the American New Wave , with Harlan Ellison conspicuously goading all and sundry, where he became instantly well-known for publishing stories whose emphasis had shifted from the external world of the hard sciences to the internal worlds explorable through disciplines like Psychology mostly Jungian , Sociology and Linguistics. To a greater extent than any of his colleagues, Zelazny expressed this shift by using mythological structures — some traditional, some new-minted — in his work. It has been argued that in true Mythology the voyage into Conceptual Breakthrough of the Hero of a Thousand Faces always climaxes in an Eternal Return, so that any twentieth-century sf tale which retells a myth incorporates, by so doing, ironies and metaphors highly corrosive of any rhetoric of outward thrust, and mockingly dismissive of the reality of breakthroughs; if this was a conscious insight on his part, which seems highly likely, his career as a whole, with its shifts and longueurs and startling epiphanies, makes more sense: for he was a visitor though a highly honoured visitor to sf.
