Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
Moorcock admits in his introduction to this omnibus that he wrote the series rapidly for the money. Yet Moorcock writing quickly for the money is like Golden Age MGM putting out a slightly below average star vehicle. Moorcock is the MGM of the genre -- Sam Goldwyn financed films like Gone With The Wind on the basis that it was better to make the best possible kind of movie and have it last than make a lot of quickies for fast turnover. Goldwyn learned this rule in the glove business, apparently -- Quality lasts. And Moorcock, who is celebrating a good forty years in the fiction trade still turns out quality, even when it isn't his best. This stuff has lasted where most of its contemporaries have risen and fallen like the ancient empires of Moorcock's multiverse. OK, this is fast food -- but it's still fast food made from quality ingredients, and I'd rather read this than some literary equiv. of a Big Mac. In fact, if you're reading Moorcock's Byzantium Endures series, say, this would be an ideal book to read for a fun break. It's still full of ideas about identity and the nature of the universe -- you just get the impression sometimes that Moorcock is flinging the observations over his shoulder as he dashes for the back door and a fast horse, saddled and waiting, as the duns draw closer and the coast of France begins to look deuced attractive (to paraphrase another Moorcock character, Manfred von Bek)... Kevin, World's End, London.

A really good follow on to the history of the runestaff. These are my favorite of the eternal champion books.

Format: Paperback
These are not Moorcock on top form. The Hawkmoon books were written in three days each. These read as if they were written in two. Lots of good ideas. No surprises when the Moorcock mind goes into overdrive. But dodgy plots and characterization let them down. My guess is that books like War Amongst The Angels and the new Elrics are a sort of revision upwards of these the first, you might call them, of the finales. My advice -- save this up until you have absolutely no Moorcock left to read.

This surely ain't the best book by Mr. Moorcock! He can write so much better! Read this for a quick fantasy buzz. It ain't worth much.
