Years after defeating the Sword Rulers, chaotic gods who treat mortals as playthings, Corum has become withdrawn and loses all joy in life. So, when the descendants of the Mabden descended from his wife beg for his aid in defeating a new peril come upon the land, Corum joins their struggle as much out of boredom as anything else.
The world, however, has changed. Where science and rationality once ruled, superstition, sorcery and magic are now the order of the day. To defeat his new enemy, Corum must come to trust in wizardy and forge strange new alliances...
Where the earlier Corum was woven purely out of Moorcock's own imagination, The Prince with the Silver Hand is a fond pastiche if Celtic Myth, fought against the backdrop of Moorcock's own version of the Multiverse. Both Jhary-a-Conel, Corum's strangely knowledgable sidekick, and Prince Gaynor the Damned, a chaotic reflection of Corum himself, make welcome reappearances as do many other of Moorcock's signature images.
Originally published in three volumes, The Bull and the Spear, The Oak and the Ram, and The Sword and the Stallion, this book will be a joy to those who have enjoyed the other Eternal Champion books, and yet can be enjoyed by those with have yet to experience Moorcock's personal mythos.
With sinister swords, black magic, treachery, heroism, zombies, giants, huge amounts of blood enough snow to make a penguin wince, this has everything that you could possibly want in a fantasy novel.
