If FABULOUS HARBOURS had been the first book in this sequence I would have understood a lot sooner how these various layers of reality work. You are given very little help from the author. WAR AMONG THE ANGELS is a glorious ending and just as wild as BLOOD, but it seems more coherent. Could it be that Mr Moorcock, as in THE FINAL PROGRAMME, didn't quite know where he was going with a new experiment and only got into his stride by the second book. There's not too many old gentlemen like him willing to jump into fresh and dangerous waters, so I give him a B for bravery, if nothing else! And let's face it, he pulled the sequence off with a vengeance, just as he did the Cornelius Quartet. But I would recommend other readers try FABULOUS HARBORS, with its superb riffs on popular myths and fiction, before doing BLOOD, then WAR. Mr Moorcock might have had a grand plan and I might be too dumb to see it and it might be like advising Beethoven to change the sequence of the 6th symphony around a bit -- open with a good thunderstorm &c &c, but if ENJOYMENT is what you want, take my advice. It'll all be worth it just for the finale. No matter how crazy it gets, just as in Mother London, somehow Moorcock roots you firmly in the important realities of human experience and the aspirations of the human spirit.
