    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.

      The Eternal Champion lives up to its name. Fortress was a fun read, but little more.

        The Eternal Champion is one of the "glues" that binds it all together. I can't imagine the whole shebang without it. While I DID enjoy Fortress, I don't think I would miss it if it wasn't there....

            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.

              I have a vague memory of reading Pearl in '90 when it came out in paperback - 'A new Elric novel!' the cover announced - but I don't remember a thing about it; I'm looking forward to (re)discovering it when I re-read it in a few years time as part of my chronological re-reading of Mike's books, but for the time being I've no choice but to vote for the TEC novel, which for once I think improves on the novella version.
              _"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."
