Product Description

Book Description

The Michael Moorcock Collection presents for the first time definitive editions of Michael Moorcock's most influential work, fully revised and updated by the author.

About the Author

Michael Moorcock (1939-) Michael Moorcock is one of the most important figures in British SF and Fantasy literature. The author of many literary novels and stories in practically every genre, his novels have won and been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Whitbread and Guardian Fiction Prize. In 1999, he was given the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award; in 2001, he was inducted into the SF Hall of Fame; and in 2007, he was named a SFWA Grandmaster. Michael Moorcock is also a musician who has performed since the seventies with his own band, the Deep Fix; and, as a member of the prog rock band, Hawkwind, won a gold disc. His tenure as editor of New Worlds magazine in the sixties and seventies is seen as the high watermark of SF editorship in the UK, and was crucial in the development of the SF New Wave. Michael Moorcock's literary creations include Hawkmoon, Corum, Von Bek, Jerry Cornelius and, of course, his most famous character, Elric. He has been compared to, among others, Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, James Joyce, Ian Fleming, J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert E. Howard. Although born in London, he now splits his time between homes in Texas and Paris.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Obviously the main Elric story is excellent - I have the original copy of it. The graphic novel in words, included as one of the other stories, is surprisingly readable. Some of the other stuff is a bit "flannely" but has some interesting points. Overall not a bad package.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By j edgar lloyd on 1 April 2014
Format: Paperback
The title story is where the heroic account of the last of The Dragon Kings really begins, although it was written 7 years after Stormbringer, the awesome and bloody conclusion to Elric's struggle in the saga known as "The Chronicle of The Black Sword". It is an absolute classic of the sword and sorcery genre while at the same time being so much more than that; Mr. Moorcock always has a good knowledge of, and bases his stories on, or with regard to, certain periods of European and Middle Eastern history e.g. the Melnibonean battle barges have a direct correlation to actual ships used in the Middle Ages- perhaps it might not be untoward to say Elric is the thinking man's Conan. And there are no flippin' elves!!! The story remains fresh and original, as do most of Moorcock's writings in this genre, and the ultimate personification of the anti-hero in Elric will have you thanking your lucky stars that it's him not you as the tragic and doom-laden tale unfolds. You will want to read the next one immediately, and then the one after that...i've been reading and rereading Moorcock for 30 years and more. And if this review has not persuaded you as yet (without spoilers!) then perhaps the acknowledged debt to the writer, now accepted as one of the greatest Sci-Fi/Fantasy writers of all time, by such of his admirers as Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman will convince you to take your first steps into a new multiverse.
The prose rendering of a graphic novel prequel, "Elric:The Making of a Sorcerer", left me ambivalent at best as to my feelings about it's inclusion here. The story just does not grip and enthrall like the originals and adds nothing of any great import to the Elric canon. The saga was fine just the way it was imo and besides, there's a really obvious mistake regarding the state of the Melnibonean sea defences at Imyrr.
Buy this now and thank me later.
