  • Moorcock Chalice Winner for 2010

    This year, after a hard fought final, the 2010 Moorcock Chalice is awarded, with a score of 52 over Mother London's valiant 35 (member votes) to, his Imperial Highness

    Elric of Melniboné



    Probably Mike's most well known creation Elric was identified by many readers as the touchstone that introduced them to the Multiverse. Certainly Elric is right up there in the pantheon of Fantasy heroes (and anti-heroes). He combines the worldly and the philosophical, the lover and the warrior, the weak and the strong in a multilayered character that can be read and enjoyed on many levels.

    Congrats to the Emperor! A well-deserved win, since he was the portal through which so many were introduced to Mike's work. Well done, pale sir.

              Moan, moan, moan I suggest that next year, you weight the votes according to the number of pages

              Seriously though, thanks once again for doing this, Groakes. Here's to next year

                    Wemba-lee, Wemba-lee, we're the famous Mother London and we got to Melnibon-ee. Where we lost in the final, just loike the moighty Villa.
                    Oh well.
                    Josef Kiss the captain played a blinder in goal but I expect being able to read Elric's mind, while it might tell you which way to dive, is a pretty traumatic experience that wore him down in the end. Possibly playing David's Uncle Jim up front was a mistake though; as a civil servant of the old school he was way too impartial to argue with the linesman.

                            The one that started it all for me

                            Ah here's the book that started my journey into Moorcok's Million Spheres. It was there for me when I needed just that sort of read, thanks Mike and glad Elric of Melnibone' won!
