Hmmm. I note that you separate Breakfast in the Ruins out from the other Glogauer novel, Behold the Man. I'm curious as to why this is so?

Hmmm! I think that answers my question in the other thread. Breakfast in the Ruins is obviously set before Glogauer takes his trip in the Time Machine.

I thought I'd read a lot of Moorcock but he is phenomenal. I've barely scratched the surface. I've only read about 4 or 5 of the novels and two of the series. BTW I've got the Chronicles of Castle Brass (1986) which you don't mention as a collection.

Ummm, not really. As I note there, when you're dealing with Moorcock, you aren't dealing with any single timeline or even a single reality -- you're dealing with an ever-burgeoning series of realities which cross-pollinate and intertwine. And Breakfast in the Ruins itself features several different "realities", not only having three concurrent lines of storytelling but even (within one of those) multiple existences which Glogauer lived, is living, or will live... somewhere.....

Keeping up with Moorcock's different collections of previously-existing work is a monstrous task. However, I drew up a revised list of his work fairly recently, and I'll try to post that this weekend; this may help newcomers to make some headway with the complex interrelationships....

In fairness to Rune who isn't around so much these days, that biblio was probably pulled off Fantastic Fiction UK or another bio site.

I agree with everything that's being said here. Moorcock is a gem of the Genre...:)

I presume you're refering to his multiverse view of the world JD?

Or of the universe....:D

And no disrespect to Rune intended. As I said, keeping up with Moorcock's proliferation of works is darned near a full-time job, although it's true he's slowed down just a tad in the last 10 years or so (not turning out 15-20 books a year, at any rate....:p Remember, this is the man who wrote the Michael Kane trilogy in a week....) What is surprising is how high quality a good chunk of his work is, given the speed at which he turned it out. And even his lesser work is chock full of fascinating ideas and speculations, not to mention meaty philosophical points to consider, often almost seeming to be "throwaway" ideas, but which are not infrequently actually the linchpin on which the book hinges....

Reminds me a little of Steven Erikson, which reminds me are you going to catch up with his work soon? I sent Nesa the first 6 books and she really liked them!

To be honest, I don't see me stepping very much outside my reading for my own research (which, I will admit, covers a pretty broad span of things) for the next six years or so. An occasional exception, but even those are pretty much accounted for; not many, and not close together.... (I'd put on a "frown" face here, but the fact is that I'm quite enjoying the stuff I'm doing; so, while I'm not happy about not getting to read other things, I can't say I'm entirely upset about it, either....)

Yes but you really don't know what you're missing in this case....:rolleyes:

No mention of The Traps of Time, the collection of short stories Moorcock edited for Penguin?

Actually, the Penguin was a reprint (if my sources are correct). It was originally published by Rapp & Whiting, in 1968. (I need to revisit the biblio I did some years ago, and update it... *sigh*)

Variations:
Queens of Deliria was credited to Butterworth only.
I seem to remember there were a few Moorcock Stories in The Nature of the Catastrophe (several different versions) which was essentially a collection of Cornelius stories by other writers.

Missed this until just now. Yes, the original edition (Hutchinson & Co., 1971) contained only "The Nature of the Catastrophe", "Sea Wolves", "The Tank Trapeze", "The Delhi Division", and "The Sunset Perspective", in addition to selections from "The Adventures of Jerry Cornelius" (comic strip), whereas The New Nature of the Catastrophe had several more, the entire strip (split into segments throughout), and with the mass market edition (iirc) even yet another Moorcock story, written in the span between the original trade and later mass market edition, was added....
