Del Rey to publish definitive Elric editions

Following in the tradition of their acclaimed Conan omnibuses, Del Rey is set to give Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné the same treatment. Starting in February 2008, a new generation of readers will have the opportunity to experience the Elric saga in the order it was originally published under the series title Chronicles of the Last Emperor of Melniboné.

The first volume, Elric: The Stealer of Souls, will feature the original Elric stories from Science Fantasy magazine, previously published as The Stealer of Souls (1963) and Stormbringer (1977), as well as other material, plus a new introduction and explanatory material. Cover and interior illustrations are provided by John Picacio, who has previously graced the covers of Moorcock's Tales from the Texas Woods (1997), Wizardry and Wild Romance (2004) and most recently The Metatemporal Detective (2007).

To celebrate the release of The Metatemporal Detective, author Michael Moorcock and cover artist John Picacio, will be signing copies of the book at Book People in Austin.

Posting in the Moorcock's Miscellany forums, John Picacio said:

"Book signing events with Mike are few and far between these days, but when he does get the opportunity, no one gives it his all like he does [and] this event is special. Not only will we be celebrating his latest book release, but we'll also be wishing him Happy Birthday as his birthday occurs a mere 10 days later on the 18th. So mark your calendars, make the road trip, and come join us. It's gonna be a blast."Lou Anders posted this quote on his blog:

The Metatemporal Detective by Michael Moorcock is now available!

The Metatemporal Detective by Michael Moorcock now available!

Hardcover: 370 pages
Publisher: Pyr (October 31, 2007)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-1591025962

“During a much-storied, 40-year career penning dark sf and cross-genre fantasy, Moorcock has always found time for the odd visit with Sir Seaton Begg, metatemporal detective extraordinaire. Collected here for the first time are Begg’s complete criminal inquiries conducted under the auspices of the supersecret Metatemporal Investigation Department and accompanied by discriminating, Watsonian sidekick Dr. Taffy Sinclair….Moorcock’s penchant for potboiler violence and archvillains, including the mysterious Zenith the Albino, takes most of these stories into the realm of parody....Yet the detective’s unique and outlandish time-jumping adventures reliably supply amusing, if fluffy, diversion.” - Booklist

Forthcoming Work
By Michael Moorcock at Aug 31 2006 - 06:39

A PORTRAIT IN IVORY is the Elric short. More a cameo, really, showing a little more of Elric's character. It's appearing in a book in which authors were asked to pick words (I picked 'Insouciant') from the US national spelling bee and write a story around them.

THE METATEMPORAL DETECTIVE is all the Seaton Begg stories collected and will appear next year from Pyr, with a cover by John Picacio.

The ELRIC BOOKS will begin reappearing next year from Del Rey in the order they were originally written, plus new material, much of which has either not been collected in the Elric books before or hasn't been collected at all, including scripts of graphic novel versions and so on. There will be six volumes done one every three months in much the same style as Del Rey's Howard volumes, with new specially commissioned illustrations as well as 'archive' pictorial material. Trade paperback format.
