    About Michael Moorcock Justin Sweet Michael Chabon


    1. Michael John Moorcock is an English writer primarily of science fiction and fantasy who has also published a number of literary novels Moorcock has mentioned The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Apple Cart by George Bernard Shaw and The Constable of St Nicholas by Edward Lester Arnold as the first three books which captured his imagination He became editor of Tarzan Adventures in 1956, at the age of sixteen, and later moved on to edit Sexton Blake Library As editor of the controversial British science fiction magazine New Worlds, from May 1964 until March 1971 and then again from 1976 to 1996, Moorcock fostered the development of the science fiction New Wave in the UK and indirectly in the United States His serialization of Norman Spinrad s Bug Jack Barron was notorious for causing British MPs to condemn in Parliament the Arts Council s funding of the magazine.During this time, he occasionally wrote under the pseudonym of James Colvin, a house pseudonym used by other critics on New Worlds A spoof obituary of Colvin appeared in New Worlds 197 January 1970 , written by William Barclay another Moorcock pseudonym Moorcock, indeed, makes much use of the initials JC , and not entirely coincidentally these are also the initials of Jesus Christ, the subject of his 1967 Nebula award winning novella Behold the Man, which tells the story of Karl Glogauer, a time traveller who takes on the role of Christ They are also the initials of various Eternal Champion Moorcock characters such as Jerry Cornelius, Jerry Cornell and Jherek Carnelian In recent years, Moorcock has taken to using Warwick Colvin, Jr as yet another pseudonym, particularly in his Second Ether fiction.

    1. More blood and souls for my lord Arioch!This is the fourth (of six) installment in Del Rey's reissue of the Elric tales in more-or-less order of publication. The first half of this book comprises The Sailor on the Seas of Fate, the second chronologically but last-written volume of the original classic six-volume Elric series that, as mentioned, I first read back in high school. Sailor itself is a bit of a fix-up -- a series of three linked novellas. The first novella is the second of the great E [...]

    2. As Elric compilations go, this one is just as enjoyable as the others but. And this is a big "but." This is the first Elric volume of the six to include a major quantity of material we've read before (in slightly different form), as "The Jade God's Eyes" recurs here in its incarnation as a volume in "Sailor on the Seas of Fate." Otherwise, another fascinating Multiverse adventure, with the expected mind-expanding cast of characters.

    3. It was interesting to read a novelized version of a graphic novel; certainly a first for this reader. "Duke Elric", the story for which this collection assumedly takes its name, was originally intended to be a much more visually recounted tale. One whereby Elric existed in the Middle Ages of Europe and, as all crusaders are wont to do, travels the length and breadth of this strange land. Without giving away too much, where this graphic novel to short story translation takes the reader is not ent [...]

    4. The main work of this collection is "Sailor on the Seas of Fate," where Moorcock explicitly ties Elric into his Eternal Champion concept and the multiverse. Nicely done. The section "Jade God's Eyes" is a bit of a letdown in light of Moorcock's later decision to "retcon" out this origin of Melnibone.

    5. I thought these Elric books would taper off for some reason, but nope, still going strong. I'm really starting to enjoy Moorcock's multiverse and his concept of the Eternal Champion. The fight in the echo of Tanelorn was just fascinating. I really love surreal fantasy.Fight for the Balance, but be careful who you call on for aid.

    6. Klytus I'm bored. I love the stories when I love them. But not all of them. The best thing about Sailor on the Sea of Fate is the wonderful Whelan painting from the 70's.

    7. Classic Moorcock, what more can I say.

    8. The two core elements of this anthology--The Seas of Fate and Duke Elric--are definitely strong, but everything else is quite a mishmash.

    9. Sailor On the Seas of Fate was very compelling for an Elric book. The rest was blah
