More shenanigans from those wacky EoT residents.
Charles Dee Mitchell
They're back! Those wacky hedonists Moorcock first wrote about in the trilogy Dancers at the End of Time. Those novels were published between 1972 and 1976. Legends has had various incarnations The 1976 Daw paperback I read contains three stories, but later editions have additional material.

Moorcock's end of time is P.G. Wodehouse crossed with Douglas Adams and something more sinister that he himself brings to the mix. I am not sure how much sense any of what happens in the stories would make t

"Pale Roses". A short, shallow story about sin. It almost wins me over with its ending, but before that it never manages to strike enough of a spark to make me sit up and notice [5+/10].

"White Stars". An OK story that repeats some of the main themes of the End of Time, but doesn't have a lot of depth beyond that [5/10].

"Ancient Shadows" The best story in the book, perhaps because it's got more time to breathe, and perhaps because its tragedy is more vibrant and believable. [7/10]

Although it wasn't as good as the first three books, I did really enjoy getting more background story of some of the other characters from the end of time.
Sadly the only worthy novella of this pack is the third one, too bad, Moorcock could have written so much better stories about the end of times...

I honestly think Moorcock's "End of Time" is equal to a book like Dune in its scope and vision.
Bonne première nouvelle, le reste un peu plan plan
