"Moorcock crosses genres, bends boundaries, and breaks rules as only a master storyteller can."


The latest on The Best of Michael Moorcock, from Library Journal:

From a poignant, contemplative moment in the life of antihero Elric of Melnibone ("A Portrait in Ivory") to a previously unpublished new revision of the 1993 story "Lunching with the Antichrist," the 17 stories in this collection demonstrate the breadth of scope and the excellence in storytelling of sf Grandmaster and multigenre author Moorcock. Verdict: One of the progenitors of the sword-and-sorcery genre as well as the New Wave literary sf movement, Moorcock crosses genres, bends boundaries, and breaks rules as only a master storyteller can. This important contribution to the author’s oeuvre contains variant versions and some previously uncollected stories; a must read for his most ardent fans.
