  • Match 7: The Chronicles of Corum vs The Lives and Times of Jerry Cornelius

    The Chronicles of Corum* vs The Lives and Times of Jerry Cornelius

    *Alternative Title: Corum: The Prince with the Silver Hand
    The Chronicles of Corum
    The Lives and Times of Jerry Cornelius

    The poll is expired.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    While L&T is good, compared to the entire Corum trilogy, Corum has the upper hand (hehe) in this one.

    When the trilogies get to be counted as a single entity, they kinda get an advantage.

      Matches 2 & 7 are both Jerry vs Corum (or Corum vs Jerry) match-ups and I find myself really torn between choosing between them, so I think the fairest thing to do is split my vote between them; so I'm voting for The Chronicles of Corum here and will vote for The Condition of Muzak in the other match. But, I could so easily do the opposite. It's that finely balanced.
      _"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."

            Had to go with the Corum. A short story collection can't compete with a trilogy.
            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.
