    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.

      Always a pleasure there TF

      I actually went the other way - possibly for sentimental reasons as this was the first Elric I ever read, so it's always been a favourite!

          Sailor's a good Elric 'fix-up' novel (7/10) but I really don't like its version of 'The Jade Man's Eyes' - which I think it works better as a Moonglum story set later in the Elric Saga - so I'm voting for An Alien Heat (9/10).
          _"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."

            End of Time for me again.
            You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

              AAH! That's better.

              Much better than a series of half-cocked short stories banged together.

                I often felt like preferring the non-sword Moorcocks. Certainly this time!

                    Alien Heat. I loved the End of Time books.
