    I like all of these stories but the Quartet as a single volume is just too formidable.

      All season I've been voting for Stormbringer on the basis of Stormbringer but Jerry has his own version in the form of A Cure for Cancer and that - combined with masterpiece that is The English Assassin - means that the Quartet gets my vote in this round.
      _"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."

        Its a shoe in for Jerry and those pesky time centre kids.

          Got to go for JC. Stormbringer is a great novel, but I'm not sold on the collection.

          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 again. I've not voted for Elric in any of the rounds and there is nothing to change that here.

            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.

              JC for me, especially if its the US Avon paperback...
              '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'

                While the Quartet are more "literary" books, I enjoyed Stormbringer more (particularly RofT) so, with the votes as they currently stand, this semi might actually turn into a match...!
