Moorcock's Metaphysics (6): The Game of Time
Transmission Ends

Moorcock's Metaphysics

This serial ran from April 10th to May 15th 2008, in six parts, exploring the philosophy behind the novels of Michael Moorcock. Each of the parts ends with a link to the next one, so to read the entire serial, simply click on part one, below, and then follow the "next" links to read on.

Here are the six parts:

  1. Michael Moorcock
  2. Law and Chaos
  3. The Eternal Champion
  4. The Multiverse
  5. Jerry Cornelius
  6. The Game of Time

Anyone interested in Mike's novels can get them from the following vendors, and from the shelves of all good bookstores:

Eternal Thanks

I want to offer my thanks to all the Eternal Champions of the exceptional online community at Moorcock’s Miscellany, and especially Aurelius, John Effay, Elwher, the Governor of Rowe Island, Incredible Sulk, J-Sun, Krzysiek, Kyrinn S. Eis, David Mosley, Nathaniel, Reinart der Fuchs, Rothgo, Serpnta1267, Zaffer and to Mike himself for the odd helpful comment!

This serial is dedicated to Mike for inspiring me to take up writing – even though I have ended up more of a game designer than a writer. His novels, and his philosophy, have had a profound influence on my life and I hope this serial will bring a few more enquiring minds tumbling into the existential beauty of Moorcock’s multiverse.

I thoroughly enjoyed the series. Thank you for writing them. While I have not read any of Moorcock's novels, I am now very much interested in them.

Thanks for the kind words, Duncan! Let me know if you pick up some of the Moorcock novels - it would be interesting to see what you make of them. Best wishes!
