    Greetings to you all

    IMG_1125.jpg G'Day Everyone

    I have been a very long time lurker here, Mike's Facebook and the previous Miscellany. Finally throwing my lot in.

    I am Australian having grown up in Tasmania and now living in Canberra. I have been devouring Mr Moorcock's produce since 1986 when someone gave me a copy of Bane of the Black Sword to read. I have been hooked ever since.

    I have since read most of what Mike has written. I think I'm only missing a couple of books, (I know I'm missing Tales from the Texas Woods and Firing the Cathedral). Also have a fair chunk of the comics and his music.

    I have just got my hands on a copy of Pegging the President and it's interesting reading Jerry stories close to the events being contemporary. The stories seem to have a greater poignancy when referencing more or less current events rather than historical as was the case when I read early Jerry stories.

    Anyway, thanks for having me abroad. And thank you Mr Moorcock for being a significant presence in my life for the last 35 years or so.

      Welcome, Slugwart, from someone who was a Canberra-ite in the 70s - long time passing, long time ago, now. Back then Belconnen was new and Tuggeranong had just been started - I'll hardly recognize the place if I go back there. I bought my first Moorcock book, Nomads of the Time Streams, from the Kingston Public Library cancelled shelf, way back in those dim dark days of 1981.

      Gold is the power of a man with a man
      And incense the power of man with God
      But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
      And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,

      Nativity,
