Product Description

Book Description

Moorcock's Multiverse presents for the first time, definitive editions of Michael Moorcock's most influential work, fully revised and updated by the author.

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
From the mid 1960s until the late 1980s, Moorcock was recognised by readers everywhere as one of the key Fantasy writers to precede the Sword and Sorcery boom that started with Terry Brooks' 'The Sword of Shannara' and that has continued almost unabated until today. Alongside Robert E. Howard, Poul Anderson, Tolkien (yawn), Fritz Leiber, C.L. Moore and Jack Vance, he was one of only a handful of writers who kept Sword and Sorcery alive. Before the Brooks floodgates opened (i.e. when publishers started encouraging writers to merely imitate Tolkien in order to make money from readers who slavishly wanted more of the same in huge quantity instead of quality and originality), it was impossible to fill a bay of shelves in a bookshef with heroic Fantasy novels. At any time, there might be three shelves-worth in print. By 1986, the money previously spent on publishers on SF publishing was being siphoned off for Tolkien rip-offs.

Moorcock used to be a best seller. Reading his Elric, Corum, Hawkmoon, Erekose and related books in his huge meta-series 'The Eternal Champion' (which comprises all of his pubvlished fiction, I'd say) was something you inevitably did if you read Fantasy - if you liked him, you probably preferred the original hard-and-fast, anti-heroic, lean and pulpy (and yet sometimes florid and romantic) school of swordplay and wizardry typified by Howard, Leiber, Anderson, Moore and Vance to the overblown fluffiness, pat moralising and cypher-characters of Tolkien.

This book is a very good book. It had me gripped all the way through, this is definitely some of Michael Moorcock's best work. Brett Garrett is a hipster, and this book is one of the best books I've read this year. 5/5!
