You gotta be a Moorcock fan surely Val... Elric / Aelric Stormbringer - loved those books when i was a kid.
It's strange really. I know the plot and a fair bit about them, but I've never actually read them. My ex-wife used to have a really nice illustrated copy of one of them. I may have read it, but I cannot remember (I cannot remember a lot of things from those days). I love the Hawkwind Chronicles of the Black Sword, though. Great music.
Currently listening to Jimi Hendrix though. 3rd Stone from the Sun.
