Daughter of Dreams
By Michael Moorcock
The Michael Moorcock Collection presents for the first time, definitive editions of Michael Moorcock's most influential work, fully revised and updated by the author.
'My name is Ulric, Graf von Bek, and I am the last of my earthly line.'
As Nazism engulfs the Fatherland, the albino Ulric von Bek battles to keep the occult blade Ravenbrand from being taken by Adolf Hitler.
As an inhuman army engulfs the eternal city of Tanelorn, the legendary albino Elric, last of the sorcerer-kings of Melnibon?, fights to keep his black sword Stormbringer from the grasp of Gaynor the Damned.
Failure for both puts the entire multiverse at risk, and the separate heroes of two worlds must now become the single champion of all worlds. Elric and Ulric mustmerge their lives and souls and become one, trusting their destinies to each other - and to Oona, the mysterious Daughter of Dreams . . .
Michael Moorcock (1939 - )
Michael Moorcock is one of the most important figures in British SF and Fantasy of the last twentieth century. The author of many literary novels and stories in practically every genre, he has won and been short-listed for many awards including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Booker, Whitbread and Guardian Fiction Prize. He is also a musician who performed in the sixties and seventies with his own band, The Deep Fix, and as a member of the prog rock band Hawkwind, has won a platinum disc. His tenure as editor of New Worlds magazine in the second half of the sixties is seen as the high watermark of SF editorship in the UK, and was crucial in the development of the New Wave. Michael Moorcock's literary creations include Hawkmoon, Corum, Von Bek, Jerry Cornelius and, of course, his most famous character, Elric. He has been compared, among others, to Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, James, Joyce, Ian Fleming. J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert E Howard. Although born in London, he now makes his home in Texas.
