We’re back in Derry & Toms roof gardens to mull over 1970’s The Eternal Champion, the novel debut of Erekosë/John Daker.
It’s got everything. Bad pronunciation, silly names and nudity.
Phil returns to the co-host chair, we drink Old-Fashioneds and draw comparisons between Noonos and Grimsby, adding that ancient port-town to our list of mildly insulted settlements.
We have a brand new logo (actually a suite of logos) by the brilliant Simon Perrins (@hf_tf on Twitter). Check out his fabulous work at https://cjthorpe1.myportfolio.com/ and pay him cash money to draw you stuff.
Since the last show Dirk over at The Grognard Files asked me on to do a turn on his My First, My Last, My Everything spot. I thoroughly enjoyed it and you can find that episode here. If you didn’t know anything about Lyonesse by Jack Vance before listen to this and you’ll be all over it. While you’re there listen to all of his other shows too. They’re brilliant.
We also have a new patron, Jim. He runs a small press publisher and is working on a guide to Elric collectables. Pay him a visit.
Finally thanks to everyone out there that has stayed interested and enquired about the show. You’re great motivators.
Stay safe and I’ll see you on the moonbeam roads.

‘Simon’ from the list of Champions is Simon of Byzantium. He fought Alexander in the short story…I can’t remember off the top of my head! 😀
Fantastic, thanks for the tip! 👍😀 I’ll name check you in the next episode!
