    First mention of Tanelorn ?

    What is the first / earliest book, that Tanelorn gets mention in ?

    I found a good deal of info in "The dreamthief's daughter" (which is one of the most enjoyable reads, I've had in a long time), but am interested in earlier views too

      In order of publication, since I've given up on chronology at this point ;)

        'To Rescue Tanelorn...' first appeared in Science Fantasy #56, which would be around 1962 or so.
        _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
        _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
        _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
        _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

          There is a timeline on this site -

          http://www.dodgenet.com/~moonblossom/Eltime.html

          - which has Elric starting his search for Tanelorn at the end of events in 'Elric of Melniboné' and abandoning it at the start of 'Fortress of the Pearl.'

          It doesn't say which of those has first mention, though!
          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.

            Tanelorn was first mentioned in To Rescue Tanelorn, which mentions Elric but is basically a Rakhir the Red Archer story. The story appeared, I'd guess, between the first short stories and Stormbringer, but it should be easy enough to find in a list of when the stories first appeared in Science Fantasy.
