  • MM Multiverse

    Do all of MM's works take place in the same universe/multiverse? I came across a MM book called The Shores of Death. I've never even heard of this before. Where does it fit in with the rest of his works and universe.

    This is also known as The Twilight Man, and was written, or published, in 1966.

    I would say yes it is part of the same Multiverse as the rest of the stuff, although the Multiverse has developed greatly since this was written.

    I always think of these books (any of the older ones from this 'era') as representing the quieter parts of the Multiverse- the Lords of the Higher Worlds might not have any noticable interests here, but the Lords of Law and the Dukes of Hell aren't the be all and end all, and these books, if included in the extended Eternal Champion saga, represent the rest of the Multiverse just getting on with its business regardless of these beings' struggles.

    I'm not sure, but perhaps to link it with the rest of the saga as a stand-alone novel this may be one of those rewritten recently and some of the characters changed into Von Beks (they get about a bit, don't they?), but I couldn't swear to that.

      Gotta say The Twilight Man/The Shores of Death is one of my favorites :!:

      I think back on this one quite a bit. Ahead of it's time! Would be a good TV short or comic as well.

      :idea: Pick up and read this one if you have'nt already...
