    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 guess TBRG was just more simplistic conventional sci-fi.

      Tricky one.

        Blood Red Game - my first ever book by Mike (and I prefer the Dreaming City)

          Jerry again for me. I find I'm not a fan of most of Mike's SF.
          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.

            Mike may hate it, but I rather like the blood red game. And it was multiverse 101.

              Perhaps bizarrely I think TBRG made more sense when I last read it than TFP did.
              _"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."

                Both really good reads. Kind of like comparing apples and chainsaws; just so very different.

                Sundered Worlds was such a good book. Loved it, got to stick with it, but I`ll feel guilty not voting for my favorite Jerry book tonight.

                  the blood red game is definetely the worst moorcock book that i've read, while the final programme is one of his most important -- it being the first in the jerry cornellius quartet, which i happen to think is mr. moorcock's magnum opus.
