    Jerry takes this one easily with A Cure for Cancer and The English Assassin.
    _"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."

      Ditto for me although i really like the Swords trilogy.
      Every one of the Cornelius Quartet is a gem for me especially The English Assassin.

        Agreed, JC for me too!

          JC also.
          'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

            As much as I like JC, I had to go with Corum. Those were the books that got me into Mike's work, so without them Jerry would have only been a character in a dodgy '70s film.
            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.

              Has to be JC for me. The first Corum cycle did little for me even when I was a Moorcock fanboy...

              1. a meeting or assembly for the open discussion of subjects of public interest
              2. a medium for open discussion, such as a magazine
              3. a public meeting place for open discussion

                Jerry for me: too much of the hand-eye coordination whenever the going got tough in the swords trilogy.
