Justin Summerville | 1 comments Hey there. Being a new member, my first topic is discussing reprints of Mr. Moorcock's work. As of this writing, I've only experienced a single story of his, and I want to read more, but I'm afraid of it being out of print.

Are there any new reprints coming out in the US in the near future? I mean, of course, of his books, not comic adaptations. In particular, I'm wondering about the Elric stories, as it appears that Del Rey's editions from 2008 (CHRONICLES OF THE LAST EMPEROR OF MELNIBONE) are being discontinued - Vols. 1-3 are completely gone, and while Vols. 4-6 are still listed on the PRH site, I assume that stock isn't going to be renewed. Does anyone know if any other publisher is going to carry the license, or are these books going to disappear into the void for a good long time and all we'll have left are the comics?


For that matter, is anything else of his that is currently out of print going to be picked up? I know where to find some:
-Titan Books has the Jerry Cornelius Quartet, the Eternal Champion, the Oswald Bastable/Nomad of the Time Streams trilogy, and the Corum books
-Tor Books has the Dorian Hawkmoon books
-Saga Press has GLORIANA
-The Overlook Press has BEHOLD THE MAN

Are there any plans for the von Bek sequence or the Dancers at the End of Time to came back into print in the US? What about some of his single novels?

I apologize if I'm asking too much, but I don't know how to contact either Mr. Moorcock or his agent directly, and publishers don't really seem to know to whom licenses are transferred once they expire, so I don't really have anywhere else to go. Is there anyone involved with this group who's close to that knowledge?

Daniel (zlogdan) Hi Justin, I am not sure about which reprints will come to the stores, I know several of them which are available in the ebook format and physical but not in the omnibus format. You can check them at Amazon.

Amazon has this excellent omnibus edition of Dancers
https://www.amazon.com/Dancers-at-End...

And they also have the omnibus of Nomad Of The timestreams ( I have the hardcover one )
https://www.amazon.com/Nomad-Time-Str...

All these omnibuses are incredible.

I am too waiting for a reprint of Jerry Cornelius, but all I can see is the ebook of The Lives And Times of Jerry Cornelius .

There is also Jade Design
http://www.jaydedesign.com/ ( most comprehensive MM catalog )

I am not sure if this helps you, but back when the official forum was active it would be very easy to make questions to Mike. In truth, he used to send autographed bookplates and he also not just answered questions from fans but he joined in the conversations.

Also in the old forum one of the moderators, David Mosley, used to describe the which editions were possible to find and where and you should see the picture of his MM bookshelf.

welcome. :-)

Gollanz has a lot of Michael Moorcock books:

(a bunch of mult-coloured covers)

These are fun to scroll though.

They might have U.S. Shipping, or have U.S. Sellers.

At least one store on eBay should have them.
