Who – not to say when, where, how or why – is Jerry Cornelius?
We'll probably never know. Still, the contents of this book do provide a kind of kaleidoscopic biography of the immortal, ubiquitous assassin who has himself been the target of assassination attempts for his own brother Frank – and of several novels by Michael Moorcock, of course.
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.
