  • Das (or do you prefer Duchess? ), the Corum books are about 120 pages or so long. They are very easy to understand and very easy to read (they end far too quickly), but also open up a bit more of the Multiverse. There are even maps (which I helped with! ) to help you. He has Jhary-a-Conel along with him in the 2nd & 3rd books to help him make sense of Chaos and Law, which is quite helpful for the reader. I think (hope!) you'll love him like I do.

      • I agree with those here that say Corum is a good way to go after Elric. Either that or "The Eternal Champion" and "The Silver Warriors" to get John Dakar involved in things.

        • I'll second VA's suggestion of going with Erekose and The Eternal Champion.

            • Great selection by Mike in both those books, tf.

              Just finished Judgement of Eve. What a great writer Edgar Pangborn was. I don't know any of his other works but I would recommend any of his books set in his Tales of a Darkening World series to anyone who likes SF. Very enjoyable.

              Next is a bit of Len Deighton, First book of the Game, Set and Match trilogy. There are six others (2x trilogies) in the series, too. More books to buy!

              • Thought you would enjoy Judgement of Eve Gov!
                Must seek out some more Pangborn myself.

                • I've been busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs at work, so I'm still on The Scar. But, I'm enjoying it immensley. Its got weird and twisted versions of most of the themes of the nautical adventures I read when I was eleven or so! And, now that I see where Mieville was coming from in The City and The City, I believe he is an actual Trotter.* I haven't figured out the political dimension of this one, but its a ripping good story and not nearly as bleak as Perdido.

                    • I'm reading Quantum Electrodynamics and M-Theory for Complete Morons, written by Miss March 2004.

                      No, wait, I only dreamed that book.

                      I'm actually I just finished my last book. I'm looking for recommendations. I'm kind of picky about what I read. I like original novels better than series, and am more likely to read known authors than newcomers, but I will give newbies a chance if well recommended.

                      Here's a challenge. Tell me a recent book Harlan would like! :-)

                      I said that to Art and Lydia Marano at "Dangerous Visions" and they just laughed (and I worked there at the time!). Then I read one of Harlan's reviews and picked up "The Etched City" by K.J. Bishop. A fantastic book. Got get it. Now!

                      • Ok WW i will!!
                        Any recommendation from a writer of your calibre is to be jumped on!

                        • Well, I would hardly put myself in the same category as MM or Harlan Ellison, but I think my stuff is at least entertaining--to me, if no one else. I just wish I could get more of it published.

                          Anyway, recommendations would be appreciated. I'm between books now, having finished "Kethani" by Eric Brown about a week ago.

                          • I just finished Judas Unchained, the sequel and finale to Pandora's Star by Peter F. Hamilton. I highly recommend these books for a fun wild SF ride that will appeal to many Moorcock fans. A portion is definitely influenced by The Multiverse (in particular the Moonbeam Roads) and the rest is more traditional SF with enough gratuitous sex to either annoy or entertain depending on how you take that. I was actually mildly annoyed but still found the series well worth continuing, and in fact hard to put down.
