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,
Reinart der Fuchs

  • I netted the following on a recent trip to the Annex:

    Ballard, J.G. "Concrete Island".
    (ibid) "Vermilion Sands".

    Moorcock, M. "Mother London". I have just opened the book to find out it's entirely in French.

    Spinrad, N. "Little Heroes".

      • Swords and Dark Magic, plus still slogging through "Destiny's Forge" by Paul Chafe. Also starting to read Eldin of Yishor by C. Tyler Storm and Heartstone and Saber by Jacqui Singleton. Will give you a book report later.

        • Just picked up a s/h copy of Brian Lumley's "Return of the Deep Ones"....
          Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

              • I took possession of a copy of [email protected] purchased on eBay this evening. Published by Jayde Design to celebrate Mike's sixtieth birthday (in 1999) it doesn't feature anything by Mike (although there are several photographs) but there are contributions from a couple of members here. (Among the many famous friends who contributed to the book the one name conspicuous by its absence - and whose presence would probably have encouraged me to track down a copy sooner - is Alan Moore sadly.)

                ETA: Ballard is also absent unfortunately.

                _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
                _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
                _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
                _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                      Woo! My lass just got back from a wee doggie-trek, and on her way back stopped at our only second-hand book store on the island. She walked in the door with this and brightened my day, to say the least.

                        Great scores, DP. Although I hang my head with you in sighness on the Franco version of Mother London. Oh, that I had listened to my french teachers, I'd be begging to buy it off you.

                            JTS, WL, you can link to pretty much any of Mike's covers in the Image Hive rather than having to attach a file to your post, i.e. this album contains your book cover.


                            Using our own local covers results in a (v) slightly lower overhead since we're expoilting content we already have rather than uploading new content.

                            Of course, if you discover a cover we don't have we'd love to know about it.
                            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.

                                Oops. I should've known better. Sorry for the waste of space. Hey, every K counts on websites.

                                Showing the state of my memory, as I'd rather enjoyed rummaging through old Moorcock covers; some I own, others never seen by these eyes.

                                Ok then, off to get some ginko biloba.
