    Moorcock's "Great Themes"

    Well, the Moorcock subforum has been a bit moribund of late, so I'll throw one out there: Who here is up to a discussion of some of Moorcock's "Great Themes" -- by which I mean those things which have been themes examined in his work throughout his career. For example: "Romance" vs. Reality...

    Just finished 'Breakfast In The Ruins'...

    Another excellent read from Moorcock. Reminds me in style to Mother London, though a shorter, quicker read and tends to hold your attention longer (mostly due to the often harrowing imagery). Has anybody read this? If so could you give me your opinions on what Moorcock was trying to say...

    Elric: Where to start?

    I've been looking at the various Elric titles and am now slightly confused. I've been considering purchasing the Elric Fantasy Masterworks title, but I'm not positive that that's the best place to start. Any advice is appreciated.

    Nations in the Elric Saga

    Hello all ! I haven't read Moorcock's books, even though I intend to but I can't easily find them here (in France, and I want to read them in English). But I am playing a game with some friends which uses the world from Elric as a map. I would've liked to know as much as possible about the...

    Hawkwind Documentary on BBC

    Forthcoming work

    I know there are several Moorcock fans on here, and I'd not heard anything about what he was doing these days, so I nipped over to Moorcock's Miscellany to find out. Apparently, he's "retired". Which means he's only got about two dozen things which should be coming out within the next year or...

    Daughter, Skrayling, Wolf's Son

    Greetings everyone: Was I the only one left flat by the three latest books of the Elric saga? For me, the tale of the von Beks and their offspring just really never "got" me like the original Elric books, or even "Revenge of the Rose". Even though Elric is involved, it shows so little of...

    Elric Reading Order

    Can anyone put the books from the bibliography in reading order, i.e. chronological order? I was always confused by alternative titles as to which books I actually had. It looks like I missed one entirely (Bane of the Black Sword) so I'll have to get that, plus a couple of the short story...

    Recommended...?

    I'm reading Elric of Melnibone... my first Moorcock, and I'm really enjoying it. Finding it really different from the other stuff I've read (a LOT of Gemmell, Eddings, Goodkind etc) Just wondering what anyone would recommend to read next? Thanks! xx

    The Brothel in Rosenstrasse

    'The Brothel in Rosenstrasse' by Michael Moorcock (1982) Was wondering if anyone has read this book and recommends it. Looks very interesting. Both amazon.com and amazon.co.uk give it glowing reviews (many claiming it's MM's best work), and from the sounds of it, it seems like a story that I'd...

    Von Bek by Michaek Moorcock

The story is about a man, Captain Von Bek, who's soul has been damned to Hell. He strikes a deal with Lucifer to release his soul if he...

    "The Dreamthief's Daughter", by Michael Moorcock

    One of the points Michael Moorcock seems to be trying to make in “The Dreamthief’s Daughter” is that a little chaos in the world is not really a bad thing. In fact, everything in the book leans toward the idea that chaos is highly preferable to too much strict and rigidly enforced law. Maybe I...

    Elric Movie?

    According to Moorcock's website (http://www.multiverse.org/index.php) he's sold the rights to the Elric saga and a movie is in the development mode. Reading the Q&A section of his forums is fun as the members all want to be part of the film, even if it is just proposing actors and the like...

    Moorcock - The Rock Poet

    My first introduction to this man was not through one of his many books but through a rock concert. As teenagers, there were a group of us who made going to see Hawkwind an annual occurence. In those days you could get a ticket for about £3.50 ($8 ?). His words were amazing in this setting - the...
