2.0 out of 5 stars A really nicely designed book, but impossible to read on a PC., 23 Dec 2013
Neither text nor image can be enlarged in Kindle for Windows 8 or PC, so although the book looks nice, it's impossible to read. This seems like a wasted opportunity - is it really so difficult to digitise a book like this? Getting a refund from Amazon was easy, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good value dvd drive, 5 Oct 2011
I've had this for a few months now and it's performing well - I use it about twice or three times a week. No problems burning, ripping or with DVD playback (I'm using Windows 7). It's a little bit noisy, but what do you want for such a low price?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eternal Champion at his psychedelic best!, 17 Dec 2000
Out of the boundary breaking pages of New Worlds Magazine came Jerry Cornelius - the English Assassin, the Eternal Champion - and perhaps Michael Moorcock's most experimental creation.
In these 31 short stories and two prose pieces, writers including Brian Aldiss, M John Harrison, Langdon Jones, Hilary Bailey (and of course Mr Moorcock himself) send Jerry Cornelius spiralling through the twentieth century, causing chaos here, inadvertently restoring order there, with a needle gun in his hand and a Hendrix song on the stereo.
The stories range from all-out psychedelic sci-fi fantasies to more conventional adventures, but all of them are stamped with the glamorous, deliciously sinister, sexy and thought-provoking hallmarks of Michael Moorcock's original invention.
Including John Clute's explaination of Cornelius' creation and development, and John Davey's reader's guide, this collection is the ideal introduction to Jerry and his eternal nemeses Miss Brunner, Bishop and Mitzi Beesley, Captain Maxwell, and Jerry's seedy sibling Frank.
The New Nature of the Catastrophe complements and expands on the themes and plots explored in The Cornelius Quartet and A Cornelius Calendar, and is invaluable if you want a wider understanding of the Eternal Champion series as a whole.
Tasty!
