Surgery successful!

I just got off the phone with Linda. Mike's procedure went exactly as expected and he is currently resting post-surgery.

Knowing Mike, I'm sure he'll be on here in the next few days with his own announcement.

Surgery...
By Michael Moorcock at Jan 12 2011 - 13:31
Medical news
Cheers, everyone. I go in at some awful time tomorrow morning and should be home by evening sans toes. Yes it's (breaks into song) Toot toot tootsies goodbye! Toot toot tootsies don't cry...
I have great doctors (cheers Jonny Sonic) -- my woundcare guy was doing all he could to save the toes when I was telling him to sign off on them. With luck this should be the last of it.
The support I've had from everyone has been amazing and there's no way of thanking you all enough.

Surgery scheduled for Thursday
By Michael Moorcock at Jan 10 2011 - 21:59
Medical news
I'm scheduled to have the surgery Thursday. There's a rumour, apparently, I'm losing my whole foot. Not so. Just the rest of my toes. Which are useless now anyway. I, too, am mostly concerned about liking the dream gurneys so much I won't want to leave them...

Any further surgery would be my leg below the knee coming off, which is why the toes are coming off to stop the 'rocket effect' of infection travelling rapidly up the bone and infecting the rest of me. Bone's now exposed, putting me in the danger zone. So it needs to be done as quickly as my doc can fit me in. I like the guy a lot and trust him to do a good job. The last balls up wasn't his fault but an OR nurse's. Linda's asked him to supervise the bandaging and he's promised to do so.

Apologies re surgery
By Michael Moorcock at Jan 9 2011 - 13:46
I apologise for being a bad correspondent with many over the last couple of months. All efforts to save my
wounded foot without resort to surgery have been made and now, somewhat inconveniently, I'm seeing a surgeon tomorrow (Monday) re. amputation. Shouldn't be too serious, though, as I said somewhere, I feel a bit fed up with constantly supplying Mrs Lovett for tidbits for her bloody pies... I AM a little nervous but it's mostly to do with more things going wrong (caused by medical staff) than anything else.

Q&A original announcement thread

ELRIC: SWORDS AND ROSES is here!
By John Picacio at Dec 28 2010 - 10:59
Hi, folks --

Hope everyone is hanging in there as 2010 draws to a close.

Some great news -- ELRIC: SWORDS AND ROSES -- the sixth and concluding volume in Del Rey's definitive Elric omnibus series, is now available. I'm excited for Mike that it's now out and loose in the wild. Check it out.

Elric: Swords and Roses
I was honored to illustrate the cover and interiors for this volume, and it's loaded with bonus goodies, as well as a foreword by Tad Williams. Take a bow, John Davey -- great readers' guide by JD in the back of this edition, which will be indispensable for many of us. I've already learned a few new things scanning through it.

Visit Random House's website, Suvudu, where they've just posted an exclusive short essay by me discussing some of the art for this book along with sneak peeks of a few interiors.
