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.

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.Read more ›
