  • Does Michael read this forum? and a request.

    Hi admins. Does Michael read this forum or possibly post?
    I've been a huge MM fan since I was a teenager in the 80s. Thanks Mike for some great reads and keeping me sane in my younger days.

    I have cancer now and don't know how long I have, as it's spread over my body.

    I would really love a hello and goodbye from Mike, But I understand if it's not possible.

    Anyway, thanks for all the great novels and wonderful reads I've had of your work.

    Very, very sorry to hear this danskmacabre. I hope the good bits of life still outshine the bad.
    I don't think Mike has been back to the multiverse since the recent reboot.
    He does post on Facebook quite a lot though as Jeremiah Cornelius, mainly in the group The Many Worlds of Michael Moorcock: a fan page

      So, so sorry to hear this awful news danskmacabre. I hope you can enjoy what time you have and I'm sure we can try to let Mike know you'd like to speak.
      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.

        Grim news, danskmacabre. Sad to hear it. My Dad died of a similar cancer - non-specific, throughout the body. It's not something I'd wish on anyone.

            He Emailed me a very kind and touching email to what I have replied.

            It really does mean a lot to me and is a big thing on my bucket list of things to do before I check out!. :)

                DM, I am extremely sorry about the situation. I don't know what else to say, man.

                  danskmacabre , so sad to hear this, man. Cancer is something that has such a massive impact on so many and I am among them. I wish you and yours all the best and can only hope the time you have left is peaceful and full of love.

                              Hi all.
                              So I'm on a trial of new treatment which is a combo of Immunotherapy and Chemo (3 different drugs) now.
                              The trial runs for a year and it might work.
                              It should extend my life somewhat at the very least.
                              The drugs make me feel nauseous and other side effects, but hey, gonna see how things pan out.

                              Anyway, thanks for the well wishes. Remaining positive and enjoying life as much as possible for as long as it lasts. :)
