Sojan! Moorcock's first Sword & Sorcery hero now in print for the first time in 20 years. The Warrior Lord Sojan battles on a strange and remote planet, his heroic adventures setting the stage for all Moorcock's later champions. Since it's original publication the Sojan Saga has been the most sought after of Moorcock's heroic fiction.
Elric! The Secret Life of Elric of Melniboné. In two revealing essays on his archetypal hero Moorcock documents the creation of his doomed prince and draws parallels between the nature of reality and the creation of a fantasy.
Jerry Cornelius! The most misunderstood of Moorcock's heroes yet his exploits have been related in books, comic strip and film. Now Moorcock writes about the origin and making of Cornelius legend.
Michael Moorcock (born 1939) is a prolific English writer primarily of science fiction and fantasy. Moorcock's most popular works have been the Elric novels, starring the character Elric of Melniboné. In 2008 the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America named him as a Grandmaster of SF.
