Episode 06 – Elric of Melnibon√© Part Two w/ @lozbearfield

Elric of Melniboné Part Two

Loz is back with me at Derry and Tom’s as we dive into Straasha’s ocean depths to prize open the mysteries below and discuss (most of) Book Two of Elric of Melnibon√©. Elric is full of pith and vinegar for a change and we get a good look at him from a different perspective.

Excellent beverages are consumed along the way.

Crazy hat. Crazy crazy hat.

Episode 05 – The Final Programme Phase One w/ @husseindharma

The Final Programme Phase One

After a degree of arm-twisting and one false start, Hussein finally gets his head into a sci-fi/fantasy book and agrees to tell the tale!

We cover the first Phase of The Final Programme, the introduction of Jerry Cornelius into the world of Michael Moorcock.

Hussein pops a couple of cherries, appearing on his first podcast AND reading his first ever scifi/fantasy novel! He also gets to marvel at the wonders of psychedelic 70s scifi covers. Meanwhile I keep mixing up my Perssons with my Brunners.

Massive thanks to new patrons Matt and Tom, as well of course as existing Chaos Engineers Norman, Fred, Malpertius and David. I’m ruminating on what I can do in terms of patron exclusives. Watch this space.

Behind the scenes with Hussein

It took a while but, following an aborted attempt a few weeks ago, Hussein and I finally managed to hook up and record our first Jerry Cornelius session, covering Phase One of The Final Programme.

Hussein brought his snapper along and took a couple of photos. Tidy!

On to editing now. Hussein is a great talker and very articulate, so this episode will be another long one. I’m really looking forward to getting it out there.

See you on the moonbeam roads!

Moorcock Shelfies 04 – @jedwardscott1

Another fab shelfie here from Twitter compadre @jedwardscott1. Despite being very fond of some of the newer editions and omnibuses I just feel so much closer to those 60s, 70s and 80s paperbacks and there’s a lovely blend of Mayflower, Grafton/Granada and Quintet editions in here. In particular though I’m intrigued by The Warhound and the World’s Pain on there… That’s one I’m not familiar with.

Thanks for sharing!

Meanwhile, view the goodness…
