3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but only for devout Hawkwind fans really 29 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Surprised to see this one back in print. It's not a very mature piece of Moorcock work. Still, if (like me) you're a fan of the space rock band Hawkwind, you might enjoy it. It'll insult your intelligence - it reads like a DC comic plot - but it's an enjoyable retro-romp. Captain Calvert and Baron Brock ride again, just like it was back in the seventies. If you like this, watch out for 'Time of the Hawklords', the prequel. There was an attempt at a third volume, written by a fan a few years ago in graphic novel format. It was beautiful art, but I don't know if it made it into print. Think it was called 'The Ledge of Darkness'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long term perspective 10 Mar 2013
By Mark S. Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Queens of Deliria is the second in what Butterworth intended to be a lengthy series (the first one being "Time of the Hawklords"). It shows. Author Michael Butterworh consiously used Michael Moorcock's quick novel construction techniques from works such as Moorcock's Elric stories, in particular having every situation transform into something substantively different within six pages. There's a rythmic feel to the Moorcock method, and when an author is already assuming there will be more books, it tends to show as a lot of sound and fury but no real changes to the starting situation. Since there is no third book, readers will usually feel as though they have been left hanging, and the formalization of this alternating good event/bad event, sine wave like technique means the reader will usually spot that the lack of a true, final resolution, is inevitable, well in advance of the last pages.
This book, and the prequel, are focused heavily on the distinction between art rock and street rock, or as the sixties put it the 'rockers' and the 'mods'. If you're comfortable with the idea that everything that isn't Led Zep like belongs in one muddy, indescriminate pop-is-going-to lead-to-Michael-Jackson-being-proclaimed-greater-than-Hendrix-someday-and-that's-heresy bundle, with Elton John leading the destruction of all that is good and holy ONE TRUE WAY rock, and you can sincerely believe the outcome of that struggle will define the glorious success or abject and total failure of the evolutionary forces underlying the universe itself, you are the ideal customer for this work. If it sounds like a tempest in a teapot to you, ask yourself, "Do I really want to think the phrase "Tempest in a Teapot" at least fourteen times while reading a Moorcockian Sword and Sorcery style novel?"
