    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.

    Making us choose between those two ain't fair.
    But it's Elric.

      Hollow Lands for me,one of the many reasons being the introduction of Nurse!

        Elric for me - if only because it was the first Elric, and the first of Mike's fantasies, that I read.

          I love the Dancers, but have gone with Elric on this occasion.
          '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'

          Archie Mercer to Mike (Burroughsania letters page, 1957)

            Difficult, difficult, difficult. Sailor... I think, as good as the Dancers are, I like the other glimpses of the Multiverse in the Elric book.
            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.

              Dancers for me: Sailors wasn't my fav Elric, though a lot better than some of the 'mid-Elrics' that were to follow.

                  Jherek Carnelian's adventures at the Café Royal edge it over Elric's adventures on the Dark Ship.
                  _"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."

                    Favorite Elric book yet!

                          Only if his power rings were functioning though (and iirc they don't work outside the End of Time itself do they?).

                            True,but if Jherek did find himself in that situation he would just get Amelia to slap him about for him!
