Product Description

From the Publisher

Rocking On The Edge Of Time
Deep at the Earth's Centre lay the Death Generator. Buried there from time immemorial by a long-dead race of aliens, it had at last been triggered into action....For among the ruins of London, surrounded by the survivors of the recent holocaust, Hawkwind rock, their music catalysing the attacking Death Ray - a lethal concoction of high energy that insinuates it's way into the mind, tormenting every sense with demonic psychic visions. With the breakdown of the barriers between nightmare and reality, Hawkwind find themselves re-enacting the stages of a war that took place thousands of years before, in which they take the role of the Hawklords - the only potential saviours of the human race otherwise doomed to extermination in an apocalyptic battle between the forces of good and evil....

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Mungo on 12 April 2012
Format: Paperback
This was the first in a projected, mid-seventies, SF trilogy by the two Mikes (Moorcock & Butterworth), featuring members of the rock band, Hawkwind. It was followed by Queens of Deliria and theoretically, Ledge of Darkness but the latter title didn't make it into print until a graphic novel version some years later. Moorcock was closely associated with the band at the time and can be heard narrating a couple of numbers on the Warrior on the Edge of Time LP (my favourite rock album of all time). What I like about this book is that it creates fictional personae for Hawkwind, e.g. Baron Brock (Dave Brock, gtr/vcls), Count Motorhead (Lemmy, bs/vcls) and fits them into an SF novel format in a way that matches the band's identity. The chapter titles are drawn from Hawkwind songs and in the story itself, our heroes battle the Death Generator in a post-apocalyptic London with their instruments as weapons. It is a fun, tongue-in-cheek SF story and a must read for any Hawkwind fan. The Star edition has the best cover art, IMO. For other Hawkwind/SF links, check out the back catalogue of Roger Zelazny.

Quite nostalgic with memories I had when it first came - knew most of the guys in the book.
Having read it recently found it was still a good read

2 of 8 people found the following review helpful By "redbab" on 8 Feb 2004
Format: Paperback
This book just isn't like any Michael Moorcock book I know and I have to assume it is by the comic-strip writer Michael Butterworth (Trigan Empire) with very little input from Moorcock. I enjoyed his collaboration with Storm Constantine
(Silverheart) but suspect he wrote much more of that. This is a book done as a Hawkwind promotion and I suspect done as some sort of record company give away when it first came out. If you are a Moorcock completist, that's the only reason to buy this book.

Worth reading if you have an interest in the band Hawkwind. 1 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book, written by a proven SF/Fantasy author, is not his best work, but has a definite interest for the reader who has knowledge of the band Hawkwind and would like to see its members immortalized in fiction. The plot moves along slowly, and it has not aged well. The hippy vs straight concept is well outdated, but it is a amusing blast from the past for the readers of more current styles of SF.

Only for Hawkwind Fans 25 Mar 2001
By Daniel Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Time of The Hawklords is but a collection of space dreaming sequences based upon the ideas of the rock group Hawkwind, with the seed of Michael Moorcock on some of its compositions and in the mood of the group as well, that is why you cannot speak about the book without referring to the music. The book itself is an exercise of baroque descrptions and actions depicting the band members as psychedelic characters travelling through the Universe in a decadent space-hulk, armed with musical weapons. The visual imaginery of the story relates it to similar parallel universes as those of the 2000 A.D. or Warhammer 40K wargaming series.
