Welcome to Moorcock's Miscellany

Dear reader,

Many people have given their valuable time to create a website for the pleasure of posing questions to Michael Moorcock, meeting people from around the world, and mining the site for information. Please follow one of the links above to learn more about the site.

Thank you,

    I think most of these references have been covered in the FAQ but you might be interested to know that the Dark Empire figures quite a lot in the forthcoming Elric/von Bek The White Wolf's Son. Here we learn a little more of their origins and history. For instance, one character speculates that the masked Orders of Granbretan are based on football 'tribes' -- the Wolves, for instance. I couldn'[t get any references into the Hammers, the Gunners or ManU, but you might enjoy some of the other ideas.
    Oh, Bastable's in there, too.
    And it all ties up pretty neatly, I think. But I might have a different view of the book in a couple of days, after the euphoria is over. I'm still working on the first polish.

      On a recent re-reading it ocurred to me that "The Black Corridor" seemed to be describing (in the pieces set on earth) a society that would eventually lead to the one portrayed in the Hawkmoon stories, while still being recognisably one which has developed from ours. Would anyone agree with this observation?
      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.
