Voted by the London Times as one of the best writers since 1945, Michael Moorcock has long been considered one of the top names in science fiction and fantasy. Here, Moorcock has personally selected his best published and unpublished essays, articles, reviews, and opinions—all uncensored. Covering a wide range of topics including books, films, politics, reminiscences of old friends, and attacks on new foes, this collection is the definitive compilation for any serious fan of Moorcock, or science fiction in general. Drawn from more than 50 years of writing, including Moorcock’s most recent work from the Los Angeles Times and the Guardian—along with obscure and now unobtainable sources—the prose in this compendium showcases Moorcock at his sharpest.

Wry and dry are Moorcock's (Doctor Who: The Coming of the Terraphiles) modus operandi in this collection of nonfiction selected by the author and Allan Kausch.

City Book Review

Although the book does occasionally get into some dry material, and the amount of detail in some areas can bog things down a little, such as the detailing of his army miniatures, the book does give some valuable insight into the author, making it a valuable read.

SF Signal

This speaks to the excellent editing of the book as well, but by the time you reach the largest section of the book, Moorcock’s writing has set both a pace and tone that frames his writing on literature with clarity and stimulates an enthusiasm in the reader to step deeper into his literary mind.
