    The Western behind Andrea's picture is The Lost Buckaroo, I think, and the picture above is a Masked Buckaroo mock-up by me. I think it was when I was thinking up the Second Ether stuff, Berry, as well as mulling over the MB, probably around the time I was writing or had just written Jerusalem Commands. The series in The Independent was called How We Met, I think, and usually pictures of both parties were taken together, but it wasn't possible for me and Andrea to get together for the same session.

      I've uploaded some reviews from SFX magazine circa. 2001, as well as a small interview with Mike from the SFX Ultimate Fantasy Guide supplement. All my pre-2001 copies of SFX are in boxes somewhere and my wife is currently going through my post-2001 copies looking for Stargate SG1 articles (she's just started buying the DVD season box sets) but as soon as I get a chance I'll have a trawl through both to see if I can find anything else Moorcock related.

        Okay, I wrenched the post-2001 SFX's out of my wife's clutches and found three more reviews (two for 'FtC') and an small iv with Mike re. TWWS and the Elric movie.

        Same link as before plus [link expired]

          Nice one. I was particularly impressed by Guy Haley's review of The Runestaff collection. Spot on.

          But what must it have been like, I wonder, to have "existed as a flume of ideas"? Did existing on such a different plane inspire some of Mike's fiction? And how does one re-incarnate as a mere human being later? Perhaps Mike will tell us.

            Hey AndroMan,

            I put copies of those files here to relieve your website of the traffic coming from here.

            17 years later, I've finally got round to transferring Mike's replies to MP3 and RealPlayer files and uploading them to cyberspace. Miscellany Chaos Engineers and Archivists, please take note. :)

            Large Mp3 file (30.0mb):

            Not so large Mp3 File (13.6mb):

            Even smaller RealPlay File (7.7mb):

            If Mike sounds a bit tired on the recording, then it's most probably down to the dreaded Deadlines!
            The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

              I've scanned and uploaded a 1975 interview with Mike about The Land That Time Forgot from a large format Edgar Rice Burroughs special. I had to scan it in two halves owing to the size and it's currently sitting in the Limbo gallery:

              demos, did you want to move it across to the interviews section.

              Somewhere I have an interview with Mike that appeared in 'Men's magazine' Club International the same year, but because of the source and the occasional frankness of the interview I wouldn't want to upload it without Mike's permission. That's assuming I can ever find it again.
              'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

                  Excellent find, Aral. I think I once owned that large format ERB special edition thingy. I even vaguely remember Mike talking about the film people "buggering up" his and Cawthorn's script. I thought that was a very "out there" thing to get printed in a mainstream, newsagents' shelf publication aimed mainly at kids.

                  Mike was already a great favourite of mine by then.

                    I've actually got two copies. My original from 1975, which is now falling apart at the seams, and a better condition one that I got off ebay from Michel Parry. I have to admit Mike's name didn't mean anything to me thirty years ago, it wasn't until about 4 or 5 years later that I started reading him.

                    And in that nice multiversal way, a couple of Mike's stories have appeared in Parry-edited anthologies.
