About the Author
Michael Moorcock (1939-)
Michael Moorcock is one of the most important figures in British SF and Fantasy literature. The author of many literary novels and stories in practically every genre, his novels have won and been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Whitbread and Guardian Fiction Prize. In 1999, he was given the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award; in 2001, he was inducted into the SF Hall of Fame; and in 2007, he was named a SFWA Grandmaster. Michael Moorcock is also a musician who has performed since the seventies with his own band, the Deep Fix; and, as a member of the prog rock band, Hawkwind, won a gold disc. His tenure as editor of New Worlds magazine in the sixties and seventies is seen as the high watermark of SF editorship in the UK, and was crucial in the development of the SF New Wave. Michael Moorcock's literary creations include Hawkmoon, Corum, Von Bek, Jerry Cornelius and, of course, his most famous character, Elric. He has been compared to, among others, Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, James Joyce, Ian Fleming, J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert E. Howard. Although born in London, he now splits his time between homes in Texas and Paris.

The cover art is meant to be a sort of weather-worn reference to a 1950s dreary literary aesthetic. the little mildew stain on the bottom of the front cover is part of the design. But compared to the wild Fontana and Quartet covers of the 70s this is dull, on cheap, thin and shiny paper. The book arrived scrunched up with sort of whale hump, like a telephone directory left against a wall for a couple of days . The whole thing gives the appearance of having been put together by some young design student who thinks that the past is a black-and-white compendium of academic mustiness
The words, ideas, and worlds, however, still live. It's like meeting up with old friends and finding they haven't succumbed to the entropy tango. So, five stars for Mr Moorcock, but this lump of paper disappoints
