  • Where to find Elric Seris

    My son has read the first two novels in the Elric series and has requested the rest of the series for his birthday.

    Where in the world can I find these books? Every place I have checked so far say they are out of print...thanks!!

        My experience of buying second hand copies through Amazon is that you get very nice clean copies.
        If you have any trouble at all, Ryan's mom, drop me a note here with your address and I'll work out how to get copies to you.

          Wow Michael! What a guy.

          You are nice - despite what everyone says :lol:


          Jayde Design is a wonderful resource! I mentioned it before but let me do so again. John from JD mailed me (yes mailed - post) a list of his inventory. It cost him آ£1.31 to get it to me in Texas - he's in the U.K. Now I'd say that is pretty nice to do for someone you don't know.

          Definately look at his stuff. You will be very glad you did! :D

          abe books is great. You could find a lot there too.
          When they had advanced together to meet on common
          ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
          and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
          each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
          mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
          killing, and the ground ran with blood.

            And let's not forget the Sci-FI book club. They have all the Elric books except for the new ones collected in 3 nice volumes, and you can get them new.

              Hi!
              I've been searching for 'The Elric Saga Part III' book but haven't managed to get a copy of it. I am from Spain and, unfortunately, most Moorcock books have not been translated to Spanish and, the few which have, have been long deleted. That's why I'm reading them in English and, to be honest, I'm enjoying them far more than reading them in Spanish. However, I would like to get hold of a copy of the aforementioned book. If anybody wants to part with it, I'll be glad to buy it. Thanks in advance.

                  John Davey is always a good source, too.
                  The book club has bought the rights to the latest sequence, by the way.
                  These book club editions are good but they don't publish the stories in chronological order like the omnibuses. The UK mass market omnibuses are the best value in my opinion.

                    AAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!

                    Had I five bucks, very clean copies of all the Elric paperbacks are currently available at my library's book sale! Suggest you also haunt libraries and yard sales for these delicious items.

                    PS - I also owned the Book Club editions, and they are quite nice (as to readable print and such). Together with this site's information, the stories can be read in order.

                    PPS - I have also dealt with amazon.com's used book finders. Thus far they have been very reliable; plus Amazon has pics of the books AS IF they were available.

                    PPPS - Mike, you gotta strongarm a nice publisher to do some Collected Works - with color plates and variant covers and such.

                      Indeed, John Davey seems to be such a honest and reliable individual. I contacted him once and his reply was very fast and amicable. He found what I was (still, I am) looking for but I couldn't afford the price. Nevertheless, he warned me it was too expensive. I think that proves he's a very honest guy. To sum up, a gentleman.

                        That's somethin I'm very much expecting. Hope that, with the movie, all the books will be available around here.
