Pyr-o-mania: Elric – The Heavy Metal Years

I really need to read some Michael Moorcock…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I first saw mentions of Moorcock in Richard K Morgan interviews. Moorcock is officially on my radar, but as with most authors that have a good size backlist, I’m not quite sure where to start. What makes the above video interesting is that I’m pretty sure one of Moorcock’s famous characters is a rocker of some sort. I feel a bit out of the loop, like when my friends talk about the great experiences they had with D&D. Someone point me at a good starting point for Michael Moorcock, please.

  1. Read Elric first, go from there. Whole bunch listed at linked blog too if you want to browse, Eternal Champion-like.

  2. Thanks!

  3. I have the whole Elric of Melnibone series you can borrow. The books are really short. My current car is named Stormbringer after Elric’s sword. 😀

  4. Looks like I’m not the only one with Moorcock on the brain. Issue # 5 of Helioptrope is out… and is entirely devoted to the genius of Michael Moorcock. Okay, Pyr is also where I found this video…I probably shouldn’t type before I wake up.

    @Jenn, I may take you up on that offer!
