  • TexasMonthly: A Q&A With Michael Moorcock

    I think this November 2002 interview recently came out from behind a paywall: A Q&A With Michael Moorcock

    A favourite passage:
    I’m very quickly bored by fiction which resolves into genre. As far as Westerns are concerned for instance, I’ll enjoy The Virginian, say, but don’t like Louis L’Amour at all. I like Holmes, but have very little patience with, say, Christie. I like a genre in its very early stages or its late, usually humorous stages. I like writers such as McMurtry who rise above genre and make a story their own.

    Thanks for this! I must admit, I thoroughly enjoyed 'King of the City.' I think Mike's semi-autobiographical London stories are amongst my all time favourite tales.

    Confession, my old Gran & GranPa were avid Louis L'Amour fans. Between them & John Ford, I got into the novels when I was younger. I quite enjoyed them, back in the day. In a roundabout way, they eventually led me to Tony Hillerman's Joe Leaphorn & Jim Chee, Navajo tribal police detective thrillers. I really enjoyed reading them. ;>)

      Thanks yourself! I'm rather fond of Mother London and appreciate the reminder (and recommendation) about King of the City.

      I read Hillerman's Dance Hall of the Dead many years ago and enjoyed it enough to have picked up a few other Hillerman's for my mom.
