  • I didn't know where I should introduce myself, so...

    Hi, everyone!
    Specially you, Mr. Moorcock!
    I've just finished the Elric series, and I must say that I fell in love with the story at the very begining, so I couldn't stop reading until I finished (it took me three weeks to read eight books, even as I had to go to school and everything). These are by far the best fantasy books I've ever read!
    Now I'm looking forward to read more books by you, Mr. Moorcock; tough it will be kinda difficult since local libraries doesn't have the titles . Anyway, I hope you will forgive my unexperience and welcome me here.
    Bye!
    (If I spell wrong, please make me notice... english is not my native language.)
    Sweet moons!

    Hello!

    I wouldn't worry about the spelling if I were you, I'm an English "native" and seem to leave lots of mistakes in my posts. (I actually have a dictionary by the computer, so I really have no excuse).

    Hope you enjoy the forum, and find more of Moorcock's work soon!

      Thanks for your kind comments.
      Most of the stuff is still around in inexpensive second hand editions, but I also donate to libraries sometimes. So should you be in touch with your librarian and they wish to write to me, I might well be able to improve on your available material!

We are all only human even if some think differently. Also, i find my dictionary to be quite handy. If you have any questions, please feel free to voice them because you are in a community of very kind and intelligent people who will help you out. They always answer my needs.
        And Michael is not such a bad bloke no matter what they say.
        Have fun!

          Hello Alexa,

          Very glad you can join us! It's wonderful that you have discovered Mr. Moorcock's books and I look forward to seeing more of you around here.

          And please do not worry about spelling, I make mistakes constantly and no one says anything to me. Plus if english is not your native language, you're braver than I for writing in it!

          Anyway nice to "meet" you! :D
          When they had advanced together to meet on common
          ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
          and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
          each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
          mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
          killing, and the ground ran with blood.

                Thank you very much for welcoming me here!

                Yupe, I live in Sonora's capital, which is a city just in the middle of the desert, so it is a desertic city... very beautiful in it's particular dry style.
                And, Mr. Moorcock, thanks! Your books are kinda hard to find down here.

                    Are there any particular titles interest you? Many of us here could help find them.

                          Hi Alexa - I have a good Oxfam bookstore near me that always has a shelf of cheap old Moorcock paperbacks so I will see what non-Elric ones I can find this weekend. Postage might be a bit much (from UK)! Click on the e-mail button below this message if you're interested.

                          www.abebooks.com is always good to find books.
