A man can kill or cure by touch as he travels through a plague-stricken land. Z. called it his worst book, and it has not proven to be memorable to me, either. ( )

OK. Disjointed.
Noted during my 1980s attempt to read every book in my small town library. ( )

Zelazny's worst, according to Zelazny, "To Die in Italbar" is still better than most sci-fi. Simple story with varying competing protagonists mostly on a domination/serving slide, Zelazny, as always, lays out the multiple worlds and egos with precise worlds. If you can't be a fop, be an artist. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743479149, Mass Market Paperback)

In TO DIE IN ITALBAR, the galaxy is in chaos, with people falling prey to an unidentifiable disease. Only one man has the ability to help - a man who can heal or kill with a touch. Known only as 'Mr. H', he is being sought after by everyone, but for vastly different reasons. Even Francis Sandow is seeking him, and may be the only one with a clue as to who H really is...In the bonus novel 'A Dark Travelling', James Wiley is an 'ordinary' 14-year-old who has lost his scientist father to a parallel world in the darkbands. With the help of Becky, his sister with magical powers, Barry the exchange student and Uncle George, the werewolf, James goes in search of his parent. But he must take care: for if there just happens to be a full moon at the wrong moment, James's itchy palms might lead him into trouble...
