    Thank you Mr. Moorcock

    Thank you Mr Moorcock for such a wonderful piece of writing. I just finished the Dreamtheifs Daughter and was completely mesmerized through the entire story. Ive not read any of the VonBek characters with the exception of who was in the Dragon in the Sword. The VonBek family is interesting and I thought Ulric was great. It was easy to take to him right away. Writing from his point of view was genius. THEN seeing it from Elrics point of view was such a treat!!! That just stunned me. To see things from Elrics point of view, things going on in his mind was something I could only hope to have a chance to see. What a wonderful inside look at their magic and the dragons and just how he was (I cant think of any other way to put it). I felt Elric was in such rare form dialog wise. He was great ^_^ Seeing the daughter only hinted at, at the end of Fortress of the Pearl was a treat as well. I was apprehensive on how she would be but I was not disappointed. I really liked the way Elric was with her. And I found it very fascinating how Melnoboneans are supposed to be with their children and yet Elric chose not to be. I thought that was very nice. How he was with her was just right.

    Im looking for a copy of Skrayling Tree now. I have to read the next one as soon as I can !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THANKS for writing, for me, one of the best stories Ive ever read!!!!!!!!!!! That story keeps company with a few others you have written as favorite stories ever :P

    One question though. I thought Stormbringer was a ‘male’. Ravenbrand was referred to as a ‘she’ and then later Stormbringer was as well. Was this just how the characters chose to interpret the sword in its two incarnations in this event or have I been missing something the whole time? (as in Stormbringer being a female)

    Actually Stormbringer is probably neuter, and it's up to the perception of various users of the Black Sword to impart a gender.
    Thanks so much for your kind words. I do my best!
