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’m very late to this, but this really makes me sad. You can feel like you know some of the core of a
    person in what they show online. Such a good presence.

    Just Read this. Although it might not appear so. Slightly taken aback. Soon as I saw his name & avatar, I realised that I was just plain expecting him to be here. Porcas Volans, it was, said what I would have said, Bugger!

    One death too many this year as someone very close to me in the mundane world died by inches of a rare heart condition a few months back.

    At the time of my return here therefore i literally was speechless. The uncrowned King of the Miscellany was probably amongst the first of you i met nearly a decade ago and without his example of grace and wit 'under fire' i really don't know where i would be now.

    One last time: Hail Mighty Thingfish!

    I am very sorry. Alan is in my memory from seeing him on this forum. He really stood out to me. Fond memories of him, always was happy to see his avatar. Loved reading what he had to say. RIP Alan.

    Thanks for that, JoS. I've made a donation to Macmillan in Alan's memory

    Yes, I only knew him from here and then FB and Instagram. Bravado did some acoustic gigs on Instagram. Lovely stuff. He was always so upbeat, despite the long fight. I’ve missed his resounding “Welcome to the Weekend” on the “What are you listening to” ever since the Miscellany shut down. And, his just plain fun conversation

    He was battling cancer and he did indeed put up a good fight. I found this article yesterday about him and his band who had recently performed a charity gig for him. I too only knew him within this realm, but I always enjoyed our chats and reading his posts and was hoping that those would have continued. It's all so very sad, he will be deeply missed.

    Very sad to learn of Alan's passing. Just last week I was looking at those of us who have wandered back and was hoping we'd hear from him again. He will be missed.

    Just a lovely human being. A happy warrior for all he went through. RIP Alan.

    I can't remember which was the exactly pathology he has struggled against but I do remember he went on a delicate surgery once.
