    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.

    Love Rose, but Alien Heat is probably in my top 5 (and Dancers is my fave MM series).

        Alien Heat for me.
        Will always be remembered fondly and i always look forward to re-reading it.

          When I returned to reading Mike's work after reading nothing but crime fiction for a decade or so, one of the first books I picked up was Revenge of the Rose and I was amazed by the way that it was still an Elric book and yet seemed to be much deeper and more ambitious than the Elric books I'd read as a kid.

                Another very difficult one. I much prefer the late Elric material to the earlier, so Rose it is.

                        Dancers, most certainly.

                          Damn! Voted for the wrong one! Wanted to vote for Dancers. The best of the three in the trilogy, imo.

                            An enthusiastic vote for The Rose: I used to think that Stormbringer was my favorite of the Elric series, but I believe I've changed my mind. Over Christmas, I read sections of The Rose aloud to my wife while she worked on a wood sculpture, and both of us thought it sounds even better than it looks on the page.

                            The vote is no slight to Heat, by the way; this is a tough match.

                              A Rose by any other name would still get my vote!
