Author Michael Moorcock signs at BookPeople on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 7:00 PM!
Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Michael Moorcock as a major influence. His literary flair and grand sense of adventure have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man. Tonight, Moorcock presents his first independent novel in nine years, the first in a fantastical and autobiographical trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London.
Michael Moorcock widely acknowledged as one of the premiere masters of SF and fantasy and selected by The Times of London as one of the fifty greatest British writers since 1945, is the author of dozens of works of SF, fantasy, and mainstream fiction, such as the Elric sequence (starting with The Stealer of Souls), the Corum Series (starting with Knight of Swords), the Hawkmoon series (starting with Jewel in the Skull). He has received the World Fantasy Award for life achievement and was named an SFWA Grand Master in 2008. He lives in Texas.
