- DescriptionA celebrated fantasist returns with a unique excursion to a time-twisted realm hidden in the byways of London, city of his birth and his heartAlmost anyone who has read or written SF or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock.

Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Moorcock as a major influence; as editor of New Worlds magazine, he helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and J. G. Ballard.Tor Books w proudly presents Moorcock's first independent vel in nine years, a tale both fantastical and autobiographical, a celebration of London and what it meant to be young there in the years after World War II.
