The Winds of Limbo

by Michael Moorcock
Release date: 1965
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Also published under the title The Fireclown.

DEMON OF LAUGHTER, PROPHET OF FIRE

In the towering City of Switzerland, after a century of peace, political power was deadlocked between the Solar Referendum Party and the Radical Liberal Movement.

Until the laughing Fireclown arrived.

His jovial personality, grotesque appearance and powerful speeches in favour of a return to Nature: all these excited the masses – and struck fear into the ruling élite.

Was the Fireclown merely a romantic anachronism, a potential votecatcher, an issue with which to distract the populace from Earth's real problems? Or was he a genuine threat to humanity's future?

Only Alan Powys and Helen Curtis tried to understand what the Fireclown was really saying...
