everyone go read you some michael moorcock, it's like if tolkien had interesting ideas and was an anarchist

@nicod_ @tindall @charlag

i sometimes wonder if Mr Moorcock had been reading Jack Vance, because some of "The Knight of the Swords" gives me a vaguely Vance-ish vibe.


heh! in his book "Wizardry and Wild Romance" he absolutely rails against Tolkien's antagonists. examines LOTR from the perspective of the British ruling class.

@tindall reading the Elric stories was such a fun experience, even better because I feel good supporting the author
