    Moorcock - desperately need help with reading order

    Been looking around the site and scrolling through some of the chats but still find it somewhat confusing. Read JD's list but got lost with all the different publishers/omnibus editions etc. Love what I've read over the past years - Von Beck, Eternal Champion (only got some of them I think)...

    Moorcock's Top 10 SF novels by other authors (selected in 2001)

    I found this online, and thought Moorcock fans might be interested. 1. Greybeard Brian W Aldiss PD James used a similar plot which she corrupted with bad prose and poor thinking. An early eco-freak, Aldiss gives us a world fundamentally destroyed by consumerism. This is the original...

    Moorcock's exemplarily bad essay on Tolkien

    http://notionclubpapers.blogspot.com/2015/06/michael-moorcocks-epic-pooh-essay-on.html At the least I thought I'd stir the pot a little.

    The Ice Schooner

    A story of a post-apocalyptic ice age that bears more than a passing resemblance to Moby Dick. Throw in a pinch of Joseph Conrad and you've got a novel from Mr Moorcock. A whaling captain looking for a new ship comes across a character dying on the ice. Saving this individual steers him to a...

    Moorcock to write Dr Who novel

    16th November 2009 04:36 AM David Allen It is strange how what would seem to be good news, can be exciting and depressing all at the same time. This can be said of the news that the author of Elric and Multiverse books, Michael Moorcock will be working on a piece for Dr Who. That is the...

    The winds of limbo

    I'm not a fan of most of the fantasy that's out there. All these Tolkien imitators fill the shelves of every bookstore. I've heard many great things about Moorcock. I know China Mieville's cited him as an influence. I find Mieville's novels very refreshing. I picked up a used copy of a michael...

    Gollancz announces major new Michael Moorcock publishing project for 2013/14

    'Sojan' versions

    [j.d. asked this in the 'Another Attempt at a Moorcock Bibliography' thread but the length of my answer probably means it's better in its own thread rather than risk derailing the original thread.] The new Sojan book (packaged alongside Joe R. Lansdale's Under the Warrior Star by Paizo...

    Moorcock does Doctor Who!

    I came across this when scanning thru the latest copy of SFX. He has sold his soul to the devil and done a Dr Who novel! Can't be for money-he must be loaded! Or has he done novellisations in the past?

    Dancers At The End Of Time

    I'm currently re-reading these novels (in the handy SF Masterworks omnibus edition) and am again discovering just what a fine writer Moorcock at his best is. His swords-and-sorcery, with the exception of Elric, has always been a little hit-and-miss for me, but it's his so-called literary fiction...

    For what it's worth: a year of Moorcock

    I'm trying to jump-start my reading habits with a stunt: read more or less all of Moorcock's work in a year - and blog about it. Tim and Nick Have a Library I'm off to a good start so far (the reading part, anyway). Composition isn't my strong suit so if you visit I'm afraid you won't find...

    revisions in omnibus volumes: how drastic?

    The title of this post says it all, so feel free to skip this background. I catalog my books on LibraryThing. One of their discussion groups is called 50 book challenge, which is just what it sounds like: you post your intent to read some number of books over some period of time, maybe from a...

    Moorcock's science fiction?

    It seems a little strange to me that the man who was the leading light in the development of new science fiction with New Worlds magazine,yet he is mostly known for his fantasy. But what SF has he written and whats it like?

    Preferred reading order? Or; Whatever Happened to Series-Linear Narrative?

    Grimward posed an interesting (and seemingly simple) question in the "When Fantasy Is Just Too Dark" thread in response to one of my posts: The answer, on the other hand, is anything but simple, unless you wish to answer the later bit with "Yes... and No.":rolleyes: Part of the problem is...

    Moorcock and Cabell

    I may be setting this thread up for immediate extinction, but it's not the first such thread I've started, nor (stubborn critter that I am) is it likely to be the last. So... Does anyone aside from me see similarities between Michael Moorcock's work and that of James Branch Cabell? Not in...

    Another Attempt at a Moorcock Bibliography

    I sometimes think a person's got to be just a little nuts to attempt this. Nevertheless, I've given it a go. This will have to be in several installments, and I'm splitting it up into Chronological, Series, and Omnibus Editions, for easier reference. I have no doubt that I've overlooked some...
