    So let me get this straight.... Jerry Cornelius is the only being in existence and EVERYTHING is but a figment of his imagination? I mean, he is everybody in the books at some time or another... how can he be Rakhir the Red AND Elric at the same time in the same book? Oh I know he can, that's imagination for you, but isn't there anyone else in the universe with poor Jerry? i thought Lord Jagged might be but I'm not sure... I was reading the Golden Barge recently and was a bit perturbed when MM lamented how he might have chosen another path of writing if he hadn't of got the go ahead for the Elric stuff... What?! thank the Runestaff he got the moolah!
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Oh, so now I am the only one in existence... ha ha ha, yes very funny, very funny indeed. If no-one replies, then I shall have to respond to myself from now on...
    ...now, where to begin... what a pale shadow Von Bek was of Elric in the Dreamthief's Daughter, for an Eternal Champion aspect he was crap compared to the Melnibonean Marvel. Why doesn't Von Bek remember this adventure in "The Dragon in the Sword"? Why was he described as blue eyed and blonde in said book?

      Well... still no answer from the other planes... well, then... I often wonder what MM thinks of other writer's attempts at the Multiverse. Talbot's "Luthor Arkwright" was a nice try, Alan Moore's "Captain Britain" was excellent, whilst comic book companies other attempts always seem to be pale in thinking out differences.


      MM's work sometimes seems like the Dancers at the End of Time as the ultimate puppeteers (are they the lords of the higher planes?) (and if so is Cornelius Arioch?) who are so bored that they put these ants (champion aspects) to work on the amoebas (the rest of the world) to relieve their boredom? So ultimately the Runestaff or the Grail or the Black Sword loses their spiritual meanings and become mere plot devices?

        Riiiiiiiiiiiiight... now NO-ONE is answering ANYTHING... Jhary, what have you done? The Matter transmitter alright? Please confirm it is so.
        Then again, if no-one is listening or reading this then what will I expect in return...
        ...Why am I asking you?

        What do I want in the next Multiverse novel? I think I'll have an explanation of the Companion aspect please for twenty. Or Michael Moorcock's take on Bowie's "Major Tom" creation.
        Now... does anyone know the way to Tanelorn?

          The basic problem is this: multiverse is not optimally designed. Look for a redesign in about 6 weeks.

              Has the Shifter passed me by? Is there anybody else out there but me and Eric Zollman (surely Lord Jagged himself?!) By the Runestaff and the Blank Flag, someone reply and get the Multiverse wound up and running again!

                Act IV, Sc. ii
                (The scene is an old bookshop. Our hero enetrs stage left to rapturous applause from the incandescent audience. Turning, he addresses no-one in particular...)
                Muckyshoe:"Can the worst truly have come to pass? Has Moorcock left this mortal coil and hauled anchor with the Spammer Gain? Have you all been but figments in my imagination?"
                (There are shouts form the audience "No!" "Avast!" Women are seen to physically swoon at the thought, men hold their heads in shame)
                (With arms open in askance)Muckyshoe: "Well, what are we going to do now?"
                (There are cries from the audience "What are WE to do?")
                (Muckyshoe, the great Thesp that he is, raises his visage to the baying masses)
                Muckyshoe: "Back to yours."
                (The curtain falls on a truly wonderful performance, as Muckyshoe leaves the stage and the auditorium with the audience for a uproarious knees-up at the End of Time.

                  It appears, Jhary really is having a little trouble with the workings of the Multiverse (possibly the morphail effect, or indeed Muckyshoe, the shifter), however this should prove there is more than entity in the Multiverse. I too would like to believe Jagged is Arioch incarnate (however this seems too simple,in this complex Multiverse...)

                    SO..... at last another voice in the Mists! Or have I started talking to myself again? Is that chappie Jhary passed on or has he gone into hiding? Lucas of Alexandria, lets hope not!

                      Eric Zollman, Dyvim Slorm, Lucas of Alexandria and Muckyshoe all treaded carefully up the stairs of Tanelorn's central tower.
                      "Remind me again, why we are here?" asked the slightly built thief.
                      "Dyv," replied Muckyshoe, "doesn't the truth about what happened to Jhary a-Conel mean a thing to you?"
                      Dyvim Slorm, rogue that he was, cocked his head to one side. "It would if finding him meant we had a future..."
                      "Enough!" retorted Lucas of Alexandria, the light shining off of his hoplite armour. His great crest towered above all of them in imperious might. "Is it not enough that we have made it to Tanelorn the Eternal?"
                      "Tick box 'no'" asided Eric Zollman, the caustic wit and wizard of the quartet. How long had he travelled the spheres on his quest for the Shifter? It had certainly taken a toll on his mind. But his power was second to none. When he spoke, others listened (or at least made an effort to look like they were.)
                      ">snnrkkk!!<" snorted both Dyvim and Muckyshoe in a failed attempt to cover their laughter.
                      "By the Runestaff," replied Lucas "I should never bothered!"
