John C. Wright's Roger Zelazny Recommendations

I suggest that if you like the family infighting, larger-than-life superhumans, and intrigue, you read yourself some Roger Zelazny’s deservedly famed Amber series. It is a delight: a film noir detective tale (starring my personal favorite character, an amnesiac), which morphs into a fantasy and a Jacobin-style revenge drama.
The Merlin books take place in the same background, but they are terrible. Avoid.
Of his work, I recommend LORD OF LIGHT as his best.
Check out Wright's site to see the full list, which covers some of Zelazny's lesser-known works.
