The Knight of the Swords Book Two Loz returns as we head up to the Roof Garden to ruminate over Corum's endless jawing with a slightly dubious sorceror in The Knight of the Swords Book Two. Multiple varieties of pants are considered along with a couple of actually palatable beers. Progress I say! Meanwhile, Gerard … Continue reading The Knight of the Swords Book Two
The Final Programme Phase Two Finally, the Spheres align and Hussein and I manage, after ten months, to get it together and look at Phase Two of The Final Programme.

Gerard Arthur Connelly is a character I created over 25 years ago (perhaps … Continue reading The Journal of Gerard Arthur Connelly – Audio Version (Work in Progress)
The Eternal Champion Part One 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.

Happy Birthday Michael Moorcock and Phil One of the twitter gang tipped me off a few weeks ago that December 18th is Michael Moorcock's birthday.
