This isn't a review, just a note as to why I didn't go forward with reading this. The anthology was a flea market purchase several years ago; I'd never read any of Moorcock's Elric series (or any of his other work), and I thought this might be a good introduction to the character and world(s). Unfortunately, it soon became clear that this is really a collection aimed at seasoned fans of the series; without that background, one quickly becomes lost in the quicksand bogs of presupposed information ...more

Great collection of stories. I particularly enjoyed Karl Edward Wagner's story with his fantastic Kane character. Having Elric and Kane in the same tale felt like a superhero crossover story, but in the best way possible.

I've always been a fan of Elric, and this book was no exception. This was a series of short stories, written by several different people. As such, I have to admit that I didn't care for all of them, however overall it was an interesting and compelling collection. The majority of the stories were excellent. In the end, I would highly recommend this to anyone who is an Elric fan. Even if you don't like all of the stories, there are enough here for anyone to find something they like within these pa ...more

Overall, I'd have to call this book disappointing. There are individually some good stories, but even many of those don't fit in well with the Elric mythos, and beyond them there's quite a few bad stories as well (particularly those near the start of the book, a critical mistake in anthology construction).

Best Story: "One Life Furnished in Early Moorcock" (Gaiman)

Second Best Story: "The White Child" (Nye)

Good Stories: "The Gothic Touch" (Wagner), "The Guardian at the Gate" (Clencin), "Kingsfire"

One of the anti-hero phantasy characters. Well developed characters and a story line that is very believable for the genre.

Since this was a collection of stories by other writers,it is hard to compliment the whole book. Some stories I liked and others I didn't care for. Since I'm an Elric fan, I had to add it to my collection.

Worth reading if you're a big fan of Elric. This is a collection of stories, primarily by writers other than Moorcock, dealing with Elric and Elric's world. Some are really good, others not so great.

Very good book. I always enjoy reading stories about one character from the perspective of several authors and this book was perfect for that.

Interesting to see other writers tackle Elric, but the story by Moorcock is still the best one in the book.
Like most anthologies it's very hit and miss.
Brandon
Several of the stories are good, a few are crap. I think Elric is a great character to read about. Fun book.
