Product Description

Book Description

Moorcock's Multiverse 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.

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Stevie Edwards 1000 on 31 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
A good bedtime read, better than The Fortress Of The Pearl; more engaging and descriptive. Still not top notch writing, but a great yarn. Elric still needs to be made into a film. Okay, so he had a big part in Hellboy 2- The Golden Army, but these books deserve a place in celluloid, instead of the constant stream of mind- numbing remakes. Just about to start on the Sleeping Sorceress after a break to read Let The Right One In. Review elsewhere. Let you know how this one goes...

The voyage of the Eternal Champion upon the seas of mythos 16 Nov. 2003
By OAKSHAMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every page of this graphic novel could stand on it's own as a worthy work of art. The colours are especially magnificent. In the forward, Michael Moorcock expresses his surprise and delight that First Comics could adapt his work so faithfully to graphic form. Indeed, this volume is one of the best monuments to that now defunct Chicago publishing house.
Sailor on the Seas of Fate is actually the first tale of three in this volume. It takes place before the traditional start of the Elric mythos- before the destruction of the dreaming isle, Imrryr, and of his bride, Cymoril. In this story Elric flees pursuers from the Young Kingdoms only to find himself on the shores of the sea with no escape before or behind. He resolves that it is better to simply walk on into the waves than to give his enemies the satisfaction of his slaughter. Only the voice and the pull of the black rune blade, Stormbringer, at his hip draws him back to shore. Eric then resolves to simply sleep and await his inevitable fate- too weary to longer care. It is then that he is awakened by the looming shadow of a great ship. He hails the vessel only to find that it has been searching for him. He finds other passengers that seem oddly familiar. They seem to come from many places and many times. Some, like Erekose, Prince Corum, and Hawkmoon, seem to actually be a part of him in some strange way- like they share a common soul. The blind captain tells the passengers that they sail for mythical Tanelorn, the archetypical soul of all cities. Here the four shall be forged into one to save the universe itself from being consumed by a threat from Beyond.
The second tale takes place on the voyage back to Elric's home plane. He lands upon a strange shore where he falls in among pirates- and one future friend, Count Smiorgan Baldhead, sea lord of the Purple Towns. Elric and his new companion then encounter the legendary Melnibonian sorcerer, Saxif D'aan. D'aan is famed in the old tales as one of the few of his race to know the emotion of remorse- and how it drove him mad. It seems that Elric has been drawn to this place and time to help resolve and avenge the monstrous crime that drove the sorcerer to madness.
Finally, an adventurer that seeks a city even older than dreaming Imrryr rescues Elric and Count Smiorgan from the seas. They travel along of this quest only to find the secret of his own race's origin- and to the origin of the contest between Chaos and Order on this plane....
If you can still find a copy of this book then grab it. It is truly something special in the world of graphic novels.
