I forgot how good this is - how good Moorcock can be. Don't understand me wrong, I enjoy his fantasy, in all it's cheesiness. But this - this is different. Short and exact and perfect in both the characterisation and the language. And the very idea must have felt like an explosion when first written and read. The execution still feels like one.
