Description

The Michael Moorcock Collection continues with this trilogy of novels featuring some of his greatest characters, and the terror of the Second Ether.

Across the centuries of the human experience and the unimaginable reaches of the Second Ether, Rose Von Bek and Jack Karaquazian travel. They live by a strict moral code, gambling their sanity or their lives on the turn of a card or the roll of a dice.

But the Second Ether contains a fault, a crack through which inexhaustible power flows. Power and something else ... Something which might threaten the entire multiverse ...

Contains BLOOD: A SOUTHERN FANTASY; FABULOUS HARBOURS; and THE WAR AMONGST THE ANGELS.

About Michael Moorcock

Michael Moorcock (1939-)
Michael Moorcock is one of the most important figures in British SF and Fantasy literature. The author of many literary novels and stories in practically every genre, his novels have won and been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Whitbread and Guardian Fiction Prize. In 1999, he was given the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award; in 2001, he was inducted into the SF Hall of Fame; and in 2007, he was named a SFWA Grandmaster. Michael Moorcock is also a musician who has performed since the seventies with his own band, the Deep Fix; and, as a member of the prog rock band, Hawkwind, won a gold disc. His tenure as editor of New Worlds magazine in the sixties and seventies is seen as the high watermark of SF editorship in the UK, and was crucial in the development of the SF New Wave. Michael Moorcock's literary creations include Hawkmoon, Corum, Von Bek, Jerry Cornelius and, of course, his most famous character, Elric. He has been compared to, among others, Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, James Joyce, Ian Fleming, J.R.R. Tolkien and Robert E. Howard. Although born in London, he now splits his time between homes in Texas and Paris.
