The Magic of Moorcock and of Melinbone Beckons
on 23 June 2017
What a joy it has been to 'rediscover' Moorcock in response to a video from Neil Gaiman. Neil is interviewed (YouTube) on what were the three books that changed his life. In characteristically brilliant Gaimanese, he says, "...everything concatenated and spread out from Moorcock..." He was talking not about this novel but rather one later in the series, namely, "Stormbringer." I, however, wanted to start with the first novel, and I was not disappointed. Those of us, acquainted with Moorcock's works, know his authority and compelling style as a writer. My only question (to myself) is why I haven't taken time over the years to dive deeper into his works - a mistake I mean to rectify with a vengeance!
My thanks go, of course, to Neil Gaiman, who, once again, has acted as a catalyst for positive change in my life.
