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 things, but this includes all I'm aware of, culling from several source: Sweet Despise site, isfdb, fantastic fiction, Richard Bilyeu's The Tanelorn Archives bibliography, and my own not inconsiderable collection of Moorcock's work. I have not attempted to include all printings, etc., but only those which are especially notable or containing revisions, etc. Any omissions, please let me know, and (with Brian's permission) I'll insert them into the list.... First, of course:

It's there, labeled as a single-story paperback edition (I didn't give the publisher). I no longer have a copy -- at least, I've not seen mine since the divorce -- but it was a nifty thing; well worth picking up if you can find it at a reasonable price. It was, in fact, "The Jade Man's Eyes" that first got me into Moorcock, when it was published in Flashing Swords. A few years ago, when he was at the store I worked at for a signing, I handed him a copy of that book (the original copy I got over 30 years ago, and still in near-mint condition despite my periodic rereading of it. At first he didn't even remember having a story in that particular book; then, when he saw the date and heard it was the first story of his I'd read he was (in popular parlance) tickled pink.

Nice to be able to do that for a writer whose work has given you so much....

Yes, I'd like to get my hands on it, but the copies I'm seeing right now are a bit beyond my current budget. Hoping I can pick one up a little later, though; and thanks for bringing that one in....

Oh, and one I forgot to include in the Elric series: the recent publication of the entire graphic novel Elric: The Making of a Sorcerer; now duly added....

I have had my copy for years and a spare one to boot if you would like to replace yours.

I have most of MM books on the list except the Pyat ones which I was never keen on and the 3 mars or warrior ones read them but did not keep them and White Wolf's Son which I may be able to get at Eastercon next month in the dealers room.

Did you ever get the Lovecraft one from the BFS.

I may take you up on that.... The Pyat books are ... difficult. He's such a despicable character in many ways, is Max; yet he's also the culmination of many aspects of Moorcock's Champion -- always self-deluding; with (to his own mind) the best of intentions yet, by attempting to force reality to fit his ideal, causing horrendous damage; a cynic and an innocent at the same time. I found the first fascinating but the second and third rather a chore the first time 'round. I had a reread a few years later, and became entranced by the prose, and the different layers of the character. Now I'd put them high on the list of Moorcock's best work; right up there with Mother London (though that is a much, much more warmhearted book...). Not for everyone, though, as Pyat is a character it is impossible to truly like....

And yes, I did get the one on HPL. Thanks for going to so much trouble and for checking....:)

Mother London I did find a better read.

pm me your snail mail and I will post it surface, or if you know anyone who is coming over to Eastercon at Heathrow who you will be seeing I can pass it on.

I suppose that, while I'm at it, I might as well note the two issues of Marvel's Conan the Barbarian comic (issues 14 & 15), which were plotted by Moorcock and Cawthorn, and brought Conan and Elric together:

"A Sword Called Stormbringer!" (#14)
"The Green Empress of Melniboné (#15)

which (more-or-less) fall between Sailor on the Seas of Fate and "The Dreaming City"....

Well, it seems the information I had on the forthcoming Elric book is slightly off. There will be a six-volume set, apparently, and it does contain previously uncollected material (and possibly some new material)... but not necessarily in this volume. It looks as if it's going to be done the way the Howard volumes were done, so they'll be critical editions, lavishly illustrated, and with authoritative texts. They will also be publishing the stories in the original order of publication, rather than in the chronological order of the series. I'll definitely be getting them, and I'd suggest getting them to anyone seriously interested in Moorcock's work....

demos99: Thank you very much for the updates (and corrections). I've been meaning to get around to putting in those I was aware of (by no means all you've added) for some time, but life just keeps getting in the way....:(

As for the links:

http://www.multiverse.org/

http://www.multiverse.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

A great source for all sorts of information dealing with Moorcock -- again, I seldom get a chance to get by there these days, but anyone interested in his work can find more than enough to keep them busy for a loooong while....

The exclamation point in the title, as I recall, was taken from an early reference to the work; but again, the memory is rather vague at this point, so it could simply be a slip....

Now... The Sojan revision you mention... is this a revision of the set of stories, does this include new pieces, etc.? I'm quite curious about that as, though the Sojan stories are (obviously) among his weakest pieces, given the period they were written, they are quite interesting in some ways....

j.d.: Thanks for the links. We've got some great guys working on the Wikiverse; it's long, slow, steady work and their dedication to chipping away at the rock face that is Moorcock's Multiverse is to be commended.

The SF Reprise books are repackaged 'collations' of unsold New Worlds and Science Fantasy paperbacks (essentially rebindings) and as such Moorcock doesn't really consider them as 'edited' by him - even though he edited the original magazines - particularly as (afaik) they were published without his consultation. Kyril Bonfiglioli 'edited' the non-Moorcock issues (since he edited the original Science Fantasy editions), but SF Reprise 3 & 4 are mistakenly credited to Moorcock inside, which is where the bibliographic confusion stems from.

I know Chaosium stuck an '!' on their repackaged Stormbringer RPG which they titled Elric! but I've never seen it on the actual novel. Possibly it might have been used on an advert or similar promotional material?

I've addressed your question about Sojan in a new thread, mainly because the length of my answer would possibly threaten to derail this thread. Hope that's all right.

j.d., you may be interested to know that Jeff has a new, revised, edition of The Age of Chaos called The Law of Chaos: The Multiverse of Michael Moorcock coming out later this year (hopefully Oct/Nov), so you may want to keep an eye out for that if you're still after TAoC.

Thank you very much for the information; I am very interested. My apologies for the long delay in replying... I've been away from the place for quite some time due to personal circumstances, else I'd have given you my thanks earlier....
