      He was also in The Sleeping Sorceress before the book was renamed for the DAW 1977/Grafton 1986 Elric Series.
      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

        If memory serves i think there was a mention in one of the Corum "swords" books as well.

          If Mike ever re-retcons Hawkmoon, then his name is begging to be a beast-lord! P'haps John Collier could make him his own card to give Mike a push...!

            You're all wrong. There's no such character as 'Volodion Gagnasdiak' in any of Mike's novels.

            Perhaps you're all thinking of this fellow?

              Indeed, but I am confused David ... No-one has mentioned this Volodion guy you talk about. Paul asked about Voloidion

                Ah! The brothers* Gagnasdiak! Their parents were terribly unimaginative as it turns out...

                  There's a novel in that somewhere.

                      ...and the word is "Voilodion Gnasdiak"... Frank, would you like to give us your definition?

                          Voilodion Ghagnasdiak is an anagram of, amongst other things, the rather unmusical "A Savaging Dido Honk Oil".

                            Tip of the hat to Rothgo for reminding me it's been a bit since I've done a Lord of The Dark Empire,plus I missed sending Mike a birthday greeting and I missed sending a Happy New Year to you all!

                            So with all that said,here's a little Holiday confection. My take on Shenegar Trott. I always thought he would bear a certain resemblance to a certain someone.



                            More here...

                            We'll get to Voilodion Gnasdiak one of these days.
                            Enjoy! Happy Birthday Mike,Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you all!

                              Most excellent, Beez. I'm sure (cough) Shenegar will be most pleased with this.
