Elric: The Balance Lost

Well, it's finally hit the newstands! Elric: The Balance Lost is now on sale, no doubt at all good comic stores near you.

As is fairly immediately apparent, there's a lot more than just Elric in here: a good four champions in issue one: who knows how many before we get to the end of the first series run of 12 issues?!

You can read the prequel comic free online at http://www.elriccomic.com.

No doubt many more threads on this new comic will be created as we go along but, as yet, there's a catch-all thread for discussing this release in the Q&A forum here, or you can vote in the miscellany poll regarding the 1st issue cover varients here.

Congratulations to Chris, Francesco and all at Boom!

The Moorcock Cup
The Moorcock Cup 2011

Greetings sports fans... well, that 'time out' from last season lasted a little longer than we planned but here, at last and by popular demand - you were demanding it weren't you? - is the return of the Moorcock Cup (Chalice/Grail) for 2011!

The cup announcement can be found here, including a detailed description of what we're up to this year.

You'll need to get your skates on: Round One is already underway and the voting has started!

Thin Reflections Competition
By David Mosley at May 6 2011 - 05:27
IT'S COMPETITION TIME!!!

To commemorate the publication of Graeme K. Talboy's new novel, Thin Reflections - the first in a new series of Cornelius-related novels authorised by Michael Moorcock - Moorcock's Miscellany is pleased to announce a competition to win a copy of Thin Reflections signed by Mr Talboys.

Thin Reflections

All you have to do is answer the following question and email your entry, clearly marked "Cornelius Competition" in the Subject, to multiverse.org@multiverse.org by the 27th May 2011. Please include your name and address so if you win we know who/where to send the prize to.

And the question is:
They seek him here; they seek him there... Where might Jerry Cornelius have been in August 1911?
For those whose knowledge of all thing Cornelius isn't encyclopaedic (for shame!) it may be behove you to have access to a copy of the Quartet to assist your investigations.

This competition is open to all members of Moorcock's Miscellany, worldwide, with the exception of the Site Administrators. All correct answers received by the end of 27th May 2011 (local time) will be put in a hat and a winner will be picked at random. (In the event that there are no correct answers then a sweepstake will be held based on all entries received before the deadline.) We will announce the winner here. The judges decision is final, no correspondence will be entered into, no purchase necessary, yadda yadda yadda.

David Harvey's Focus on Economic Change
By Michael Moorcock at Apr 29 2011 - 21:39
David Harvey
For many years I have been a fan of David Harvey's work. He and I are the two characters in an early short story of mine The Mountain and he had some pieces (fiction and non fiction) in NEW WORLDS. We met in Sweden in 1960, mutual fans of Mervyn Peake. His political insights and arguments always strongly influenced my own and I believe his book The Condition of Post Modernity the absolute best on the subject. He's a tremendously good speaker (see his lectures on YouTube) and one of the brightest people I know. If you're not familiar with his progressive analysis of our current plight and how we could get out of it by favouring the poorer rather than the richest classes, this piece in today's Independent might be of interest:
