Continuing the fight against a multiverse "reduced to one dull, coherent agony of boredom," Moorcock continues to amplify the interconnected stories of the Rose, Elric, von Bek, and Jerry Cornelius, and their companions and echoes. You can enter the fabric of the Moorcock multiverse anywhere; these 11 short stories are as good a place to start as any, a compact yet sweeping introduction to everything that has come before, told in styles ranging from hard-boiled to lush high-fantasy with the perfect control of a master storyteller.
From Library Journal
Moorcock compiles nine previously published fantasy stories from 1966 and 1993-95 with the same characters and concerns that appear in Blood: A Southern Fantasy (AvoNova: Morrow, 1995) and uses this collection as a transition to his upcoming War Amongst the Angels. In this "multiverse," Rose von Bek, Sam Oakenhurst, Elric the albino prince, and the Beggs family continue their adventures. For readers already familiar with these characters; buy on demand.
