I thought I’d give this a try as its set in Michael Moorcock’s Dancers at the End of Time universe, which I read a while ago and remember liking it. Steve Aylett creates a new story using the End of Time setting and characters, which as expected turns out to be a type of adventure tale. It follows the path of a man named Leo who pops up during a party after he was transported to the End of Time from an earlier time (20th century). Leo has lived his life fighting authority, and tries to rebel ...more

Aylett does a good job of revisiting the End of Time era, but the book is heavily philosophical without a lot happening and thus didn't maintain my interest the way Moorcock's own End of Time stories did. [5/10]

Sumptuous Dress. Moorcock's contribution to this collection is a rather delightful return to both the Second Ether and the End of Time that does a great job of combining the settings and maintaining Lord Jagged's magnificence. [7+/10]

Really fun read. There is no one I'd rather go to the end of the universe with than Steve Aylett.
Walter Balerno
Hugely creative and with an entertaining use of language but ultimately I didn't care about any of the characters.

Steve Aylett (b. 1967) is a satirical science fiction and slipstream author of several bizarro books. He is renowned for his colorful satire attacking the manipulations of authority, and for having reams of amusing epigrams and non-sequiturs only tangentially related to what little plot the books possess.

Aylett left school at age 17 and worked in a book warehouse, and later in law publishing.
