    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.

    I found The Return Of The Fireclown more captivating than ACFC.
    Maybe it was all about the buildup before the ending.

      I found myself going back and reading it again after the first time i read it!

        I strongly disliked it when I first read it. But I kept coming back for more and more and more. Jerry (cha cha cha)

          Jerry, Jerry!
          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.

              A tough one; do I vote for a book I didn't much understand at the time or a book I don't much remember since I read it too many years ago?

              In the final analysis, I go with Jerry rather than the Fireclown.
              _"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."

                A great Jerry novel vs. the one Dancers book I didnt care for.

                No contest.

                  yeah i'm going to have to concur with you, duderino. the end of time is my favourite moorcock thing so i'm having a difficult time voting against it, but mavis ming WAS a bit meh, and jerry cornellius is his magnum opus i think, so i'm going to go with that.
