    During this cold winter a little heat is always welcome
    A sailor on the seas of fate?.I'm more a discarded beer can tossed into the sea by a careless god after a beach party.

      AAH for me this round, although the parallels with Elric are quite apt.
      _"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."

        I can Dance!

        Although I look a fool; even sitting it out I still look a fool.

        An Alien Heat: I read it and thought, Wow! Can he write!!! Revenge of the Rose is my favourite Elric story, and Fortress of the Pearl is my second favourite: FWIW, The Champion of Garathorm is my favourite amongst the Dorian Hawkmoon books.

        Gold is the power of a man with a man
        And incense the power of man with God
        But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
        And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,
