Michael Moorcock: Death is no Obstacle

£49.99

Product description

A 142-page interview by Colin Greenland with Michael Moorcock from seven long conversations about his writing methods that took place in Oxford & London in 1990.

''Greenland is the ideal interviewer. and Moorcock as an interviewee is open and engaging. Reading their dialogue sometimes feels like eavesdropping on a conversation that has been under way for some time. But Moorcock's fiction nevertheless encompasses so many forms. that this book amounts to a short course on writing techniques compounded with an overview of Moorcock's career. It contains sufficient nuggets of insight to fascinate readers familiar with Moorcock's works.''

Four-page Introduction by Angela Carter:
Angela Carter's 1991 introduction was amongst her last pieces of writing. After learning of Savoy's legal battles with Lord Horror, before the fatal illness she was fighting became public knowledge, she waived her fee.

Editor: Michael Butterworth.
Jacket Art: Jean-Léon Gérôme's Sortie Du Bal masque.

With 8 pictures of cover art throughout, some for Moorcook's books.

CONDITION: Good- in un-clipped glossy DJ with no inscriptions or notations. Green boards very clean and bright as is inside pages.
