STEPHEN DEAS ON MICHAEL MOORCOCK
You don't have to look very far to see Michael’s influences on my work. The silver kings germinated long ago from Elric and his kin, and, dammit, you didn't even have to read the books to get it. He proved that writing fantasy wasn't some closet shame but rock and roll, and I still have Hawkwind's "Chronicles of the Black Sword" on my play list. Dammit, he even toured with them. He made writing look cool.
