This is a hard book to review. Beowulf is one of my areas of study, so I tend to be more of a stickler than I might be with other subjects, but I am also interested in seeing different interpretations in art, especially comics and graphic novels, whi ...more

It only took the first three lines of this book to draw me in:

I’m pretty much fucked.
That’s my considered opinion.

“I think of myself as a bad writer with big ideas, but I'd rather be that than a big writer with bad ideas.”
Michael Moorcock, Elric: The Stealer of Souls

“What happened to fantasy for me is what also happened to rock and roll. It found a common denominator for making maximum money. As a result, it lost its tensions, its anger, its edginess and turned into one big cup of cocoa.”
Michael Moorcock

“In the information society, nobody thinks. We expected to banish paper, but we actually banished thought.”
