Kinslayer. Soul reaver. Sorcerer. Thief. And last emperor of a cruel,
decadent race. Elric of Melniboné is all of these – and more. His life is
sustained by drugs and magic – and energy sucked from the victims of his
vampiric black sword, Stormbringer, a weapon feared by men and gods
alike. Denied the oblivion he seeks, poised between a tragic past he
cannot escape and a terrifying future he is doomed to bring about,
Elric is a hero like no other.
Del Rey is proud to present the fifth installment in its definitive collection featuring the immortal creation of Michael Moorcock, named Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Highlights include an epic novel of Elric’s early years, The Fortress of the Pearl; the script of the graphic novel Elric: The Making of a Sorcerer; a previously unpublished proposal for a new series; and Hugo Award-winning author Neil Gaiman’s moving fictional tribute to Elric, the short story “One Life, Furnished in Early Moorcock.”
Gorgeously illustrated by Michael Wm. Kaluta, Elric: In the Dream Realms is a dream come true for sword-and-sorcery fans.
