• This is the fifty-fifth book I’ve read thus far, and it is definitely the worst. This book consisted of three stories, all bad. This first one was just sort of slow-moving and boring. I think Moorcock was trying to make some sort of statement about the dangers of nuclear war, but I really couldn’t get myself to care. The second story was the worst. The biggest problem was the Dues Ex Machina of the main protagonist being the father of the main character. Lame! In this story, Moorcock also talk ...more

This was the weakest volume so far in this eternal champion reprint series. The 3 stories in this volume appear to be very loosely coupled with the champion series (some mentions of the multiverse and using the von Bek name seems to be enough). It seems like the only character that could be considered as the champion eternal is the von Bek character that appears in the rather disconnected interlude pieces before each tale. The "roads between the worlds" from the book title appears the most stron ...more

Weakest of the omnibuses so far
The Roads Between the Worlds does not exemplify Moorcock's best work, but it certainly showcases some of the typical sci-fi contributions he was doing in the 1960s. Fans of Elric, Corum and Hawkmoon may be disappointed, as the incarnations of the Eternal Champion featured in this stories are more tangential than that iconic trio, still there is some good stuff here and certainly some memorable characters.

Shelves: scifi
This is a collection of three scifi novellas - mostly unconnected (or as unconnected as anything the Master of the Multiverse ever writes can be.) They tend towards the gloomy, and it's apparent that, as Moorcock explains in the introduction, these are basically proofread first drafts - they could stand quite a bit of tightening up. But they explore some interesting visions of society, and are generally fun pulp scifi adventures.
