    “…and then did Elric leave Jharkor in
    pursuit of a certain sorcerer
    who had, so Elric Clamed,
    caused him some inconvenience…�

      Try Jayde Design if you want some rare volumes of Michael's work and ABE books is a great resource too.

      email John at Jayde Design
      JaydeDesign - note his advert in the bottom left corner of the page. I just recieved a 1st ed signed Stormbringer from him. Very nice for hard to find books. Michael always recommends him first.

      ABE books has just about anything you need. They can get you just regular copies (or rare) of anything, it seems.
      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.

        I like the hunt of a good book. I go to used book stores and will be looking for hours... sometimes I come out with shit I never knew I could get ahold of. I live in the Eastern Bay Area (near oakland and Berkeley) and there are some killer book stores around here as well as in SF.

          Only two books were done in that series. Unfortunately the first publisher was a junkie and ran off with all the subscriptions. The
          second one was taken over and finished by Archival, but that project
          collapsed, also. The only other special edition was The Dreamthief's Daughter with work by Gould and several others. A beautiful edition,
          but not in the same set.
