Michael Moorcock - Mother ​London
Michael ​Moorcock's Mother London is perhaps his best known literary work and for good reason. Shortlisted for the Whitbread fiction prize this has the feel of a novel by a writer at the acme of his powers. A large, though never sprawling, novel Mother London follows three mental-hospital outpatients Mary Gasalee, David Mummery and Josef Kiss and their friends, in an episodic, non-linear history of the capital from the Blitz to present day. Most noteworthy is the astounding humanity of the novel (a quality redolent in all his work including its excellent follow up King of the City), with all of London's outcasts and marginals mentioned and defended. This could have reduced the novel to polemic, to parody or to the dreadful, mind-narrowing of political correctness but instead is testimony to the fact that Moorcock has created such a fine array of believable, flawed, kind characters. Throughout the book the voice of ordinary Londoners forces its way into the narratives through snippets of conversations "overheard" by the three main characters who each have, to a greater or lesser extent, the gift of telepathy. This hint of magic is underplayed throughout so that the work never succumbs to the straitjacket of magical realism itself: the conceit is used very successfully to take our characters out of themselves, and to allow London, and the voices that constitute her being, into the novel as a character herself. A vast and superb achievement (London novelists such as Charles Dickens, Peter Ackroyd and Iain Sinclair all come to mind as peers), Mother London is a book to cherish--rarely have the voices of this wonderful city spoken out so clearly through such an expansive story. --Mark Thwaite

Bőre ​mint a napszította csont, hosszú tejfehér haja válláig ér. Finoman metszett arcából két karmazsinszín szem tekint a világra, pillantását lehetetlen sokáig állni. Alakja bölcsességet, hatalmat és rég elfeledett sötét tudást sugároz - ő az Arany Birodalom máguskirálya, az átkozott albínó herceg, ő Elric Melibonéi. Meliboné szigetkirályságán még dívnak az ősi rituálék, noha a faj hatalma már öt évszázada semmivé foszlott. Fényét, ragyogását az Új Királyságokkal folytatott kereskedelemből tartja fenn, no meg abból, hogy fővárosa Imrryr a világ kalandorainak kedvelt találkahelyévé vált. Lehet-e szakítani a rituálékkal és tradíciókkal csak azért mert nem használnak többet? Egyvalaki, akinek elég hatalma van még Elrichez képest is, úgy gondolja: nem. Azt jósolja, hogy Elric a birodalom bukását fogja okozni. S ezzel kezdetét veszi a tragédia, mely csak évek múlva tetőzik, ám valóban pusztulást és bukást hoz a világra. Miközben előkerül a legendás léleklopó vámpírkard is - a Viharhozó.

Her problem is in fact symbolic of the hypocrisy of her entire court. While her life is meant to mirror that of her nation - an image of purity, virtue, enlightenment and prosperity - the truth is that her peaceful empire is kept secure by her wicked chancellor Monfallcon and his corrupt network of spies and murderers, the most sinister of whom is Captain Quire, who is commissioned to seduce Gloriana and thus bring down Albion and the entire empire.

But even worse awaited him. His betrothed Yisselda has been abducted by the Mad God, an evil sorcerer who had usurped the Red Amulet of the Runestaff. The amulet gave the power of the Runestaff itself to its possessor, and the Mad God was perverting that mighty power to his own unimaginably evil ends.

But had he, a man, the power to overcome a God?

Michael Moorcock - Elric ​at the End of Time
This ​book includes two of Moorcock's Elric stories, as well as tales of other Moorcock heroes such as Sojan, and several essays on his craft: - Elric at the End of Time - The Last Enchantment - The Secret Life of Elric of Melnibone - Sojan the Swordsman - New Worlds - Jerry Cornelius - In Lighter Vein - The Stone Thing Michael Moorcock's output is astonishing. He has written over fifty novels and innumerable short stories. Among his most popular stories are those abytr the albino prince, Elric. Two Elric stories never before published in the UK are included in this volume. _Elric at the End of Time_, the last Elric story written by Michael Moorcock dates from 1977. _The Last Enchantment_ written in 1962, was originally intended to be the final Elric story before Moorcock was persuaded to continue with one of his most enduring heroes. The collection also includes a non-fiction price, _The Secret Life of Elric of Melnibioné_ which goes some way to explain Moorcock's fascination with the Sword and Sorcery genre. The Sojan stories which appear in this volume were the first of his fantasy tales that were professionally published. They were begun in the 1950s for _Tarzan Adventures_ when he was only seventeen. The final story, _The Stone Thing_, was first published in the magazine _Triode_ and is a riotous self-parody, one of several he has written and one which will give great pleasure to those who remember _Triode_, the magazine that specialised in humorous "fan fiction".

Michael Moorcock - Harcikutya
Az ​1600-as évek elején von Bek kapitány a feldúlt, vérbe tiport, halálhörgéstől hangos Európát járja. Halál és pusztulás mindenütt – ez még a harcokban edzett kapitányt is megrázza. Amikor már végképp nem tudja, mit tegyen, hova menjen, találkozik a Nővel, a szépséges és titokzatos Sabrinával. Von Bek csak azután eszmél fel, amikor már nem térhet ki az ördöggel való találkozás elől. Miután a sötétség fejedelme végigvezeti a pokol tájain, a kapitánynak nincs más választása: egyezséget kell kötnie az ördöggel, és meg kell találnia a Szent Grált. Miközben megismerjük a hősfantasy főszereplőjének fordulatos, olykor hátborzongató ka­landjait, az íróval közösen elmélkedhetünk azon, van-e gyógyír a világ fájdalmára, létezik-e meg­tisztulás, megváltás, mi van az emberi gyarlóság határán túl, következhet-e bűn és erény egymás után, felelősségre vonhatók-e az emberfeletti hatalmak.

Michael Moorcock - The ​Weird of the White Wolf
"We ​must be bound to one another then. Bound by hell-forged chains and fate-haunted circumstance. Well, then - let it be thus so - and men will have cause to tremble and flee when they hear the names of Elric of Melnibone and Stormbringer, his sword. We are two of a kind - produced by an age which has deserted us. Let us give this age cause to hate us." Imrryr, the dreaming city; Yyrkoon, the hated usurper; Cymoril, the beloved... all had fallen to the fury and unearthly power of the albino prince and his terrible sword. And Elric faced at last the fate that was to be his in this haunted era - that he must go forth, sword and man as one, and havoc and horror would be forever at his forefront until he found his Purpose that was yet obscured to him.
