    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 Black Corridor for me for its sheer originality.

      The Black Corridor, for it's sheer horror. (Plus I've never been too fond of that present tense opening chapter of EoM, even if it does have Rackhir in it at the end.)
      _"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."

        Elric for me. TBC has two nice threads to it, but that's about all.

          EoM is hard to put down where as I found TBC had to be read in spurts.

              The Black Corridor. One of Mike's more interesting 60s books.
              'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

                Don't forget "Space Ritual" would be a different album without TBC - that sealed it for me!

                  as would Doremi Fasol Latido....

                  TBC for me. It's one of my all time favourites.
