Sticky: Greetings from Michael Moorcock

Michael Moorcock
Welcome to Moorcock's Miscellany, so-called (1) because I reprint from time to time articles which interest me and (2) because it contains discussion and information about my work. In the Q&A forum, I discuss my own work and pretty much every other subject with readers. I'm sorry that it's impossible for me to carry on long email correspondence with readers, but I can be contacted via the Q&A forum if you are trying to contact me for a specific reason. Pictures of books, magazines which I have edited, foreign editions and so on can also be found in the Image Hive. If you have rare material to share for this, it will be welcome! You can get additional information about my work in the Wikiverse.

Information about forthcoming books, short stories, reviews, interviews, graphic novels, movies, games or features, as well as book signings and so on can usually be found in the the Q&A forum of this site. From time to time, either to support various charities or to support this site, we run auctions, usually of scarcer books and other material.

Please note that I'm not in a position to read unsolicited manuscripts, books or proof copies and if they are sent to me, they won't be read. I'm sorry about this but the amount of unsolicited work sent to me for comment, testimonials and so on has become impossible to handle. If you wish to contact me professionally from anywhere in the world, learn how by visiting the Contact Policy page.
Michael Moorcock,

Michael Moorcock authorized film biography: Faith, Hope and Anxiety
By Reinart der Fuchs at Dec 13 2014 - 18:39
Michael Moorcock Film Biography
It's 12/13/14 people, and what better day than today to share this! Linda Moorcock and Russell Wall have sent along this very tantalizing Press Release.


To celebrate MICHAEL MOORCOCK’S forthcoming 75th birthday, DIGITAL STORY ENGINE are delighted to announce their next project: MICHAEL MOORCOCK: FAITH, HOPE AND ANXIETY, a feature length documentary film that explores the six decade career and influence of the legendary author and musician. Release Date: Spring 2016.

Michael Moorcock’s prolific output includes over 70 novels, 160 short stories and novellas, and 4 graphic novels; alongside 6 volumes of non-fiction which has appeared in the Spectator, the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Telegraph, and the Los Angeles Times. Although confessing that he has ‘never been much at ease’ with Science Fiction, Moorcock is best known as the leader of the British New Wave in SF and for his genre blending Fantasy work. He has received many awards, including the Nebula, Guardian Fiction Prize, the Utopiales, and he was short-listed for The Whitbread Prize. In 2008 Michael Moorcock was listed in the The Times newspaper’s 50 Greatest British Writers since 1945.

FAITH, HOPE AND ANXIETY will be ‘journeying through the time stream’ and visiting significant places in the formation of Michael Moorcock’s personal philosophy and artistic practice. Moorcock’s writings are ‘visionary’ in nature blending a kaleidoscope of techniques to best serve his restless imagination. His creative work is driven by the need to ‘be useful’ expressing both his concerns for social justice and the desire to experiment and improve contemporary fiction drawing on his deep knowledge of history, multiple pulp genres and mainstream fiction.
The documentary examines Michael Moorcock’s unique working method and his life long love affair with history and myth-making about London the city of his birth. It features the creation of the cult characters and pioneering concepts; investigating Michael Moorcock’s profound influence on contemporary fantasy and mainstream fiction, movies, comics, music, and massively multiplayer online gaming. FAITH, HOPE AND ANXIETY will be lavishly illustrated with rare and never before seen material featuring Moorcock’s personal movie footage and archive media from other private collections. DIGITAL STORY ENGINE would like to thank artist John Coulthart [‘The Haunter of the Dark' and 'Lord Horror: Reverbstorm’] for his evocative film poster design for FAITH, HOPE AND ANXIETY.

Significant contributors will include Brian Aldiss, Mike Butterworth, Michael Chabon, John Clute, Harlan Ellison, Jean Luc Fromental, Neil Gaiman, ‘Lemmy’, China Mieville, Alan Moore, John Picacio, Walt Simonson, Iain Sinclair, Norman Spinrad, Martin Stone, Bryan Talbot, Lisa Tuttle, Nik Turner, P. Craig Russell, Alan Warner and Pam Zoline. The documentary will feature contextual analysis from leading academics and a series of exclusive, in-depth interviews with Michael Moorcock.

DIGITAL STORY ENGINE produced the documentary GRAPHIC NOVEL MAN: THE COMICS OF BRYAN TALBOT [2014]. Premiered at the British Library, the biography of the groundbreaking, Costa and Eisner award winning writer/artist has received popular and critical acclaim at fantasy and literary festivals around the world.

We're recording at last. Three songs down. Great performances from all concerned. All done in Paris with Martin Stone (plus Brad and Denis, b&d) at Jean-Paul's studio in Pigalle. So far it seems to be working wonderfully. Most enjoyable music I've ever done.

Potentially more on the forum thread here.
