As the editor of London’s revolutionary New Worlds magazine in the swinging sixties, Michael Moorcock has been credited with virtually inventing modern Science Fiction: publishing such figures as Norman Spinrad, Samuel R. Delany, Brian Aldiss and J.G. Ballard.
Moorcock’s own literary accomplishments include his classic Mother London, a romp through urban history conducted by psychic outsiders; his comic Pyat quartet, in which a Jewish antisemite examines the roots of the Nazi Holocaust; Behold The Man, the tale of a time tourist who fills in for Christ on the cross; and of course the eternal hero Elric, swordswinger, hellbringer and bestseller.
And now Moorcock’s most audacious creation, Jerry Cornelius--assassin, rock star, chronospy and maybe-Messiah--is back in Modem Times 2.0, a time-twisting odyssey that connects 60s London with post-Obama America, with stops in Palm Springs and Guantanamo. Modem Times 2.0 is Moorcock at his most outrageously readable--a masterful mix of erudition and subversion.
Plus: the non-fiction essay "My Londons" and an Outspoken Interview with literature’s authentic Lord of Misrule.
"A major novelist of enormous ambition."
"Moorcock is a throwback to such outsized 19th-century novelistic talents as Dickens and Tolstoy."
