Michael Moorock ranks as one of the most versatile British writers of the post-war period. His works range from sci-fi, fantasy, satire, more literary works, alternate histories and essays. "Modem Times 2.0" shows a little of Moorcock's range though readers who are not familiar with his words and multiverse will be hard pressed to understand the title story which features Jerry Cornelius who the writer uses as the avatar of his age--be it the 1960s or the current one. While readers who are fans of the Cornelius books and stories will enjoy "Modem Times," I suspect the non-linear nature of the story and too many unfamiliar characters who pop out of nowhere with no explanation will baffle newcomers to Jerry Cornelius and his worlds. The book also includes an essay as Moorcock ponders his hometown of London and there is an interview with the writer that is excellent and insightful. Moorcock fans will enjoy it though, if you only know him through the Elric books, you might want to look at the Cornelius Quartet before tackling this book. It's simply not for everyone, even casual readers of Moorcock's works.
