    Default Moorcock

    I want to get into Moorcock's Elric novels. My bookstores have the Del Rey "The Chronicles of the Last Emperor of Melnibone" readily available. I picked up Volume 1, titled Elric: The Stealer of Souls. It has the novella The Stealer of Souls, a random short story about a character named Sojan, and Stormbringer.

    I've discovered that, chronologically, Stormbringer should be the last Elric story. So are these collections by Del Rey a good place for someone new to Elric to start reading? I've browsed for paperbacks of the individual novellas and a couple of other omnibi, but good Lord those things are expensive!

    This is the chronological order of the main sequence. "To Rescue Tanelorn" takes place at the same time as Stormbringer!

    Elric of Melnibone (aka The Dreaming City)
    The Fortress of the Pearl
    The Sailor on the Seas of Fate
    The Weird of the White Wolf
    The Vanishing Tower (aka The Sleeping Sorceress)
    The Revenge of the Rose
    "The Stealer of Souls" (in Bane of the Black Sword)
    "Kings in Darkness" (same)
    "The Flame Bringers" (same)
    "The Last Enchantment" (in Elric at the End of Time)
    "To Rescue Tanelorn" (in Bane of the Black Sword)
    Stormbringer!

    There is also this much more in-depth suggested reading order over at multiverse.org that includes everything:\

    I would suggest going with that to get a more complete picture.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    since we didn't seem to have a Moorcock thread, I have renamed this one to enable it to hold any Moorcock discussion

    Ask not what bears can do for you, but what you can do for bears. (razz)
    When one is in agreement with bears one is always correct. (mae)
