  • PH-UK/Michael Moorcock Interview

    Hello, all.

    Just to let you know that our webzine is finally up and running and that MM provided us with a rather spiffing interview. You can find it at www.ph-uk.co.uk :)

    If you do check us out, please take a look around and give any feedback, either on here or our forum.

    Big thanks again to Michael for helpng us get a great start! :D

    P.S. Sorry to plug our site here - I won't do it again... promise!

    Just read the interview. Great questions, and candid answers (no surprise there). I hope everything else turns out so successfully for you.

      Thanks, Doc.

      While on the subject, I must suggest people also read Dee's article Subobcom. He had me close to tears!

      Thanks again.

          Jeffrey Ford is next in line for the interrogation... I mean... interview.

            Michael spoke about this a bit at Point Reyes. I'd love to see 'Mother London' make it to the big screen. It's one of my favorite novels. He did not seem too optimistic about it, however. Mike gave the impression that the producer's interest was a passing interest. Hopefully this is not the case.

            He also mentioned that Mother London was the one work he did mostly for himself, as opposed to being asked to write something to pay the bills.

                  That's really cool. I believe I owe Jeffrey Ford the thanks, though. He mentioned he would e-mail them on our behalf.

                  Regardless - I didn't expect a link on the main page! :D

                    I enjoyed Ford's interview a lot. Also enjoyed his company in England. He is a very nice, smart guy. Good fun to be with.
                    One minor correction -- Mother London is by no means the only book I wrote from love, as it were -- in fact, I got the largest advance ever for Mother London! It was meant as a celebration of the best of my life and my home city, is what I was trying to get at. The Pyat books, now completed, have been my labour of conscience, if you like, and Mother London was written around the half-way point because I wanted to be away from the concentration camps, as it were, for a while. There are only one or two books, mostly from my early career, that I wrote just to keep the wolf from the door or to support some cause, which were written for money (the Kane of Old Mars books, for instance, and the original
                    Nick Allard stories). On the other hand, of course, as a working writer,
                    I do like to get paid for what I do and some books are more easily sold to the publisher than others! This last Elric book is being written for a whole lot of reasons, but I suspect money is quite a long way down the list as the impulse for writing the book. Sorry if that's a rather long answer to a short remark, but it's important to me that readers know while the occasional purely commercial decision has been made (I wrote the Sex
                    Pistols Rock 'n' Roll Swindle in about a week because I was broke, but it didn't stop me enjoying the process -- and I was able to air my own views about Malcolm and Co). Oh, and because I was in love with Irene Handl.

                      Oh, oh! Mike, while your around I have to say thankyou! You've been a real help in getting us started!

                      You know that pint of Murphy's you said you'd have? When do you want it? :D

                        My apologies for a poorly worded remark. Pints of Murphy's for all, on me!

                        Looking forward to seeing you in Berkeley.
