Tweet about Doctor Who contest - Winners announced!

Doctor Who: The Coming of the  Terraphiles
With thanks to BBC Books, I am happy to announce that October brings us a number of Moorcock/Doctor Who related giveaways in the form of a few contests.

Contest #1: Tweet about Doctor Who contests at Moorcock's Miscellany

The purpose of this contest is to get the word out about other contests and of course Mike's new book The Coming of the Terraphiles. If tweeting isn't your thing, don't worry, there are a couple more contests that will have nothing to do with tweeting ahead this month. We are hoping to create a critical mass starting with Twitter.

To enter you have to tweet about the new book and our contests. Each tweet (or retweet) (one per day per account) is an entry. We pick three random tweets as winners after two weeks. A qualifying tweet looks like this:

The Terraphiles are coming! #moorcock #doctorwho Win a copy of Michael Moorock's new book at
Our three lucky winners will get one proof of Michael's new Doctor Who book.

This contest ended on October 19th, 2010.
Winners of the contest can be found in this thread.

BLOOD available as an audiobook download from Crossroad Press
By Michael Moorcock at Sep 7 2010 - 02:15

This is a link to the site offering the audiobook version of BLOOD: A SOUTHERN FANTASY. I have had good relations with this company and with the reader.


BLOOD: A Southern Fantasy
by Michael Moorcock
Unabridged narration by Chet Williamson
Run time 8 hours
MP3 Download

The South…but not as we know it…

On the threshold of infinity, a world awaits the inevitable moment of annihilation – fearing the terrible wild colors that bleed through the shredded fabric of reality.

The river flows across the dimensions – lawless, unstable waterways that seep into chaos and violent uncertainty. Here, on riverboats and in doomed cafes teetering on oblivion's edge, jugador gamblers work their mystical trade – while others, less adept, seek purpose in a space opera mythology that determines all things. And the river flows, carrying the best of the best, jugador supreme Jack Karaquazian, ever closer to the beautiful Colinda Dovero – the walking vision to whom he once promised his eternal heart…then lost through pride and blind folly.

And the river flows, uniting Sam Oakenhurst, disciple of machinoix pain, with his mysterious beloved, the Rose. For somewhere different upriver, they each have a role to play in a continuing cosmic drama-and must risk the future on the famous luck of Jack Karaquazian in the apocalyptic Game of Time.

BLOOD: Michael Moorcock's astonishing journey though volatile matter and corrupted time – a phantasmagoric excursion to the death of the old multiverse…and the birth of the new.

FORBIDDEN PLANET have informed me that signings these days are limited to one or two hours at most, so if it's a big crowd there won't be time to sign much else. I'd suggest if you were planning to bring a lot of stuff to sign to bring your favourite book, since there won't be time to sign more. It seems that's the only signing in London, though I will be signing stock at other shops, including Blackwells. I've noticed this recently at other signings when I simply haven't had time to do what I like to do -- which is sign everything that readers would like me to sign. At present I see no real solution. You can also order the Dr Who book from John Davey. I'll sign and personalise everything I can, especially if you've ordered from John who will be more au fait with what you might want me to do.

The Final Programme + Q&A with Michael Moorcock at BFI Southbank (10th August)
By Sir John Barbic... at Jul 5 2010 - 12:46
Michael Moorcock's fast moving futuristic update of the thrilling adventure tales of yesteryear.

10 Aug / 20:30 / NFT1

The Final Programme film poster
Pulp novelist, sci-fi pioneer and sometime member of Hawkwind, Michael Moorcock has written scores of subversive, groundbreaking cult books but tonight's film is a rare example of a big screen adaptation – don't miss this chance to see it. Jon Finch is terrific as hip, party-hungry adventurer Jerry Cornelius, troubled by the recent passing of his father but reluctantly on the hunt for the mysterious 'Final Programme': dad’s design for the perfect self-replicating human. Meanwhile, his sister is missing and his drugged-up brother holds fierce dominion over the house where the missing microfilm is supposedly located. Somehow Jerry has to get his head together, and deal with gorgeous, icily seductive Miss Bruner (Jenny Runacre) – who's also after the design. Terrific performances all round in this fast-moving, futuristic update of the thrilling adventure tales of yesteryear, with an unmissable supporting turn from a cigar-chomping Sterling Hayden.

Priority booking for August screenings is available to BFI Members from 11.30am on Tuesday 6 July.
Public booking for August opens on Tuesday 13 July.

We're hoping that members of Moorcock's Miscellany who are able to make it to the screening/Q&A will be able to meet up with Mike afterwards, though this remains to be confirmed at present. Keep an eye on the Moorcock at the BFI discussion thread for further annoucements!
