The Condition of Muzak

Michael Moorcock
Michael Moorcock

Civilisation is dead, the once proud nations of Europe devolved to a series of splintered city-states. Culture itself has degenerated to the point where music is an unreachable ideal, and the highest humanity can aspire is to explore the condition of 'muzak'. In such an apocalyptic wasteland, can even the legendary Jerry Cornelius - distracted by the search for his beloved sister Catherine - restore the balance?


The Dancers At The End of Time

Michael Moorcock

'What follows, then, is the story of Jherek Carnelian, who did not know the meaning of morality, and Mrs Amelia Underwood, who knew everything about it.' In a decaying far, far future, where everything and anything is possible, the citizens of the End of Time while away their days in an exuberance of wild parties, outlandish competitions and emotionless affairs. At the world's end, all love is timeless and all age-old disputes irrelevant. However Jherek Carnelian, a bemused denizen of the End of Time, is in danger of taking reality too seriously, and grows tired of his pleasures. So when love mysteriously blooms between Mrs Amelia Underwood, transported unwillingly from the nineteenth century, and Carnelian, only one question matters. Is his love true, or is it just another attempt to stave off the boredom that ultimate power and the End of Time bring? Contains An Alien Heat, The Hollow Lands and The End of All Songs

John Clute Introduces the Collected Moorcock

The Background of the Collected Moorcock

He is now over 70, enough time for most careers to start and end in, enough time to fit in an occasional half-decade or so of silence to mark off the big years. Silence happens. I don't think I know an author who doesn't fear silence like the plague; most of us, if we live long enough, can remember a bad blank year or so, or more. Not Michael Moorcock.


I Lost My Cherry to a White Wolf

There are many authors that have influenced my writing, but without a doubt, it was Michael Moorcock who really opened my eyes to the true potential of the fantasy/sci-fi genre. You see, in some ways before I stumbled on his works I was something of a literary virgin.


Michael Moorcock and Epic Fantasy

Conan was strong and Aragorn was noble, but Elric was a sickly albino who needed a cocktail of exotic drugs just to get out of bed, let alone cut his mighty swathe; or else a demonic sword that ate the souls of his victims - and friends - in order to keep him on his feet - a willing submission to the sort of thing that Aragorn so explicitly has no truck with, and that Conan has no need of.
