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,

    Thanks AndroMan for the response and leads.

    Spaced Moorcock: Zero is a remarkable fellow. His story is treated in part by the band Gong in their album You. If you google up the lyrics I belive you will find them instructive. Zero himsel is a direct reciprocal of what I take for a zombie, which might have to do with his highly-tuned (I almost wrote "highly-strung") capacity for recognizing zombies and weaving together a yarn that exposes their warp and woof.

    You might also google the lyris to Zappa's "Zombie Woof", which certainly underscores the question as well.

      Zomby Woof

      Three hunderd years ago
      Thought I might get some sleep
      Stretched myself out onna antique bed
      An' my spirit did a midnight creep

      You know I'll never sleep no more

      To me it seem that is just ain't wise

      Didja ever wake up in the mornin'
      With a ZOMBY WOOF behind your eyes

      I am the ZOMBY WOOF
      I'm the creature all the ladies been
      Talkin' about

      I am the ZOMBY WOOF
      They all seek for shelter when I come chargin' out
      Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

      Tellin' you all the Zomby troof
      Here I'm is...

      Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF
      Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF

      The said aw-reety
      An' they was aw-righty
      An' I was a Zomby for you, little lady...

      I got a great big pointed fang
      Which is my Zomby Toof
      My right foot is bigger than my other one is
      Like a reg'lar Zomby Hoof
      If I raid your dormitorium
      Don't try to remain aloof...

      I might snatch you up screamin' through the window all nekkid
      An' do it to you on the roof, don't mess with the

      I am about as evil as a Boogie Man can be!

      Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
      Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF

      Tellin' you all the Zomby Troof
      Here I'm is, the ZOMBY WOOF
