    Sounds interesting! Gotta check him out then.

    Moorcock literally has 100+ books to his credit. His fantasy books average about 200 pages per. If you're interested in pursuing this, the best series to get a feeling for how Moorcock might have influenced the DT series is the original 6-book Elric series. Moorcock has written twice that number of Elric's further adventures since then, but these six give a good base for the various themes he explores.

    Elric of Melnibone
    The Sailor on the Seas of Fate
    The Weird of the White Wolf
    The Vanishing Tower
    The Bane of the Black Sword
    Stormbringer

    The omnibus Elric volumes contain all the Elric stories, but these six are a good place to start. But be warned, if you decide to read more of Moorcock's works, they are maddeningly hard to find--i spent years scouring back-alley bookstores for old Daw paperbacks (pre-internet).

    Got these yesterday:

    Fiona and Grams, by Gene O'Neill
    Revenge Flick! by James Newman (second copy; dropped the first in the toilet after getting up from a shit, haha!)
    Sideshow Exhibits, by Gene O'Neill, Gord Rollo and Michael McBride
    The Avian, by Brian Knight
    Whisonant/Creatures of the Light, by Mark Allan Gunnells

    That was from Sideshow Publications' $30 paperback grab bag. I already own Fiona and Grams, but still it was worth the price. If anyone is interested in trading for Fiona and Grams, I'll throw in a shitty copy of Revenge Flick! It's dry. Haha.

    I'll go scavenge the interwebs and see what I can find. Thanks for the info.

    Just got these from the Half Price Books closest to where I work and my previous address. All 4 hardcovers are 1 printings. The Lost Symbol was on clearance for $2 so I had to get it. They had a couple copies of Hearts in Atlantis HC on clearance as well, but I didn't even make it to looking at the number line because they weren't in good enough condition for me, lol. I already had a copy of Ghost Story but it's not in very good condition since the cover is ripping off

    Wow, nice deal! I wonder if they ship to europe? But nothing beats walking into the store and checking out the books for yourself before you buy.

    Just checked, and they do ship to europe. Had to force myself to leave their site though, somehow books just started flying into my cart and voices started whispering in my ear, "buy, buy...". They do have some amazing books for sale. I'll make sure to set some cash aside and order a few from them.

    And thanks. Nothing great, but still books I want in my collection, trying to get as many 1st printings of the hardcovers as I can, though some will obviously be harder to get at a cheap price. Might have to end up ordering a 1st of Desperation off Ebay, haven't found one in good enough condition yet for me. Still have another location close to me I may visit next week though

    $5! Great deal! By the dates on some of those it seems they might be hard to come by.

    Got these today:

    PICT 003.jpg

    Mervyn Peake, author of the Gormenghast novels, every Sunday while living on the Isle of Sark, would entertain his family by telling them fantastical stories and spontaneously drawing pictures to animate them; however, he never wrote down any of the stories. To celebrate the centenary of Peake's birth (09July), Michael Moorcock invented his own stories and verses based on those surviving drawings.

    PICT 008.jpg
    After the Burn by Ronald Kelly, Thuderstorm Books. 6 short stories and 2 novellas about the aftermath of a nuclear detonation. One story, Flesh Welder, was published as a chapbook by Croatoan Publishing and offered earlier this year by CD.

    Would you prefer to know before getting it or would you like to know beforehand? I can tell you, but won't if you don't wanna know.

    Someone mentioned which one was signed in a post in another thread, I think.

    Should get In Laymon's Terms by Friday...and another treasure box before then...
