      • Michael Moorcock

        Michael John Moorcock is an English writer primarily of science fiction and fantasy who has also published a number of literary novels Moorcock has mentioned The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Apple Cart by George Bernard Shaw and The Constable of St Nicholas by Edward Lester Arnold as the first three books which captured his imagination He became editor of Tarzan Adventures in 1956, at the age of sixteen, and later moved on to edit Sexton Blake Library As editor of the controversial British science fiction magazine New Worlds, from May 1964 until March 1971 and then again from 1976 to 1996, Moorcock fostered the development of the science fiction New Wave in the UK and indirectly in the United States His serialization of Norman Spinrad s Bug Jack Barron was notorious for causing British MPs to condemn in Parliament the Arts Council s funding of the magazine.During this time, he occasionally wrote under the pseudonym of James Colvin, a house pseudonym used by other critics on New Worlds A spoof obituary of Colvin appeared in New Worlds 197 January 1970 , written by William Barclay another Moorcock pseudonym Moorcock, indeed, makes much use of the initials JC , and not entirely coincidentally these are also the initials of Jesus Christ, the subject of his 1967 Nebula award winning novella Behold the Man, which tells the story of Karl Glogauer, a time traveller who takes on the role of Christ They are also the initials of various Eternal Champion Moorcock characters such as Jerry Cornelius, Jerry Cornell and Jherek Carnelian In recent years, Moorcock has taken to using Warwick Colvin, Jr as yet another pseudonym, particularly in his Second Ether fiction.

    1. As a writer, it's hard for me to imagine how people can just keep writing the same thing, over and over--just providing slight variations on the same plot, characters, and setting, where the only thing that changes are the names. At that point, it's less a creative endeavor than the symptom of a neurosis: an obsessive need to recreate the same familiar pattern, over and over, in hopes that it will free you--and truthfully, I can think of few better ways to murder creativity than to write in this [...]


    2. This series has come recommended rather highly by a few friends here on , all people whose tastes and opinions I value rather highly, so I had looked forward to beginning. So much so, that I ordered the omnibus edition of The Dancers at the End of Time, which contains the first three books. My copy was due back at the library before I was able to break into book 3, but I was able to finish the first 2 books. I enjoyed both, but I say that with a slight hesitation. I can not help but think that i [...]


    3. I was a huge fan of Elric of Melniboné as a teen, so I know Moorcock's unparalleled imagination and stellar writing. What I didn't know until I read An Alien Heat, however, is how good Moorcock could be at comedy, as well.Everything about An Alien Heat, the first novel in the Dancers at the End of Time trilogy, is bizarre. It features omnipotent dandies, millions of years in the future, who will the millennia away by throwing lavish parties and having sex with one another regardless of gender o [...]


    4. I've been avoiding Michael Moorcock's Dancers at the End of Time series for years and now I feel like kicking myself. An Alien Heat was absurd and hilarious! Who knew Moorcock was so funny? Jherek Carnellian is a fantastic character, Bertie Wooster-ish at times. I knew I was going to enjoy the book when the prologue said "Following is the story of Jherek Carnellian, who didn't know the meaning of morality, and Mrs. Amelia Underwood, who knew everything about it." The plot is as follows: The end [...]


    5. Millions of years in the future, Earth seems to have become the equivalent of a small enclave for the super-rich, only in this case funds are superfluous. Everything in unlimited -- lifetimes, the ability to alter reality, to create new settings for your life, sexual partners. This is a playground in which one of the chief players, Jherek Carnelian, is a young man who considers himself an authority on the 19th century. First he decided to explore "virtue" as a role, but soon he decides to fall i [...]


    6. Moorcock takes us on an absurd journey into the far future when death, birth, freedom and energy itself are settled questions. We find an earth populated with a small number of idle humans whose every whim can become reality.Into this world is thrust a time traveler from Victorian England. Jherek, himself a strange example of the human species at the end of time, decides to fall in love with her, and ends up doing so in truth. When another's revenge takes the form of sending his beloved back to [...]


    7. "Once upon a time, there was a time traveler named Mrs. Amelia Underwood.", and it starts. The very name brings a tear to my eye--she's 'the one who got away', or the one you never met, or the one you thank the gods for every day--that she IS or WAS in your life.'An Alien Heat' is the first book of possibly the most thoughtful fantasy trilogy of all time--The Dancers at the End of Time. It is both hilarious, and a heart-rending love story. The very definition of a 'Romance', it bridges New Wave [...]


    8. Fabulous fun. What I didn’t expect is that both the end-of-time aesthete and the Victorian lady are charming me to death and yes, I am getting into their romance. I preferred her in his world, though. The back half was him as an innocent abroad in 1890s England, but with more Dickens than fin de siècle. Whereas at the last thousand years of the universe, the parties reminded me of a 200-page party in the single volume I have read yet of Proust (Sodom and Gomorrah): since it’s Moorcock I can [...]


    9. This short novel really captured my imagination and defied my expectations. I found the decadence of the end-of-timers to be amusing and sympathetic, and loved the charming naïveté of the protagonist. Took me a few hours to read, and finished it in one sitting. Highly recommended.


    10. kind of silly throughout but picks up at the end and has some highlights, namely the misquoting of history/popular culture and mongrove's personality. reminds me of something doctor who might have done around this time period. the book is also dedicated to the members of hawkwind


    11. Fun little read. The absurdity does cover a nicely cold social commentary, and a fun jibe at historians and archaeologists (we do take our models pretty seriously). It's hard to miss the similarities that Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" shares with this; I suppose it's safe to assume "An Alien Heat" was a bit of an influence to the absurd cultures in Adams' work.



    12. Weird, wild stuff. Debauchery at the end of time meets victorian era morality. Am interested in finishing the series.


    13. I came into Michael Moorcock due to an interest in researching the influences Grant Morrison has cited for his Invisibles series. That led to me to the Cornelius Quartet as Jerry Cornelius is one of the primary influences for Morrison's King Mob. I figured it would be a simply endeavor and my journey with Moorcok would begin and end within the Cornelius Quartet. As I read through the series I found myself increasingly drawn to the non-linear structure o the story telling and the complexity with [...]


    14. In the mid-70s Moorcock took a somewhat light-hearted generic and stylistic departure to the end of time. There a small population of immortal and decadent humans, along with assorted captured time travellers and aliens, exist in eternal hedonistic pleasure. Here, one's every wish can be granted via the use of energy rings. Moorcock has not completely abandoned his multiverse and Eternal Champion however since the central figure is Jherek Carnelian, the last human to be actually 'born', and whos [...]


    15. Originally published on my blog here in September 2000.The first Michael Moorcock novel I ever read, An Alien Heat remains one of my favourites. On the surface, it is about the very far future, from the very last days of the universe (which is why it begins a trilogy called The Dancers at the End of Time). The people who live at the end of time are extremely powerful, controlling vast amounts of energy to make and remake matter at will. They spend their time in an endless round of sophisticated [...]


    16. I found this book on top of a pile sitting on the footpath in Erskineville while on my way to the Kurrajong Hotel yesterday. I've never really read much sci-fi or fantasy, aside from Douglas Adams and his ilk in my youth, and some Ray Bradbury of course (but he seems to count more as literature than sci-fi/fantasy really). Perhaps it was because I was in a weird mood, having had a fight with my girlfriend, but after a few lagers I found the pure comic absurdist-surrealism of Moorcock's world jus [...]


    17. Ничего особенного. Начало скучноватое, в конце становится вроде ничего.


    18. My feelings on this book are mixed. Purely as a story, I did not much like it. It was painful watching Jherek, unaware of the social conventions of Victorian England, attempt to woo Mrs. Underwood, and even worse watching him stumble through Victorian London, utterly oblivious to the inappropriateness of his behavior. This left me feeling a kind of vicarious embarrassment that made reading An Alien Heat a chore, not a pleasure. I also found myself agreeing with Li Po, a captive from the 23rd cen [...]


    19. Beyond bizarre, Mr. Moorcock’s vision of a future society of effete layabouts is dazzling, appalling and rather alarming. Mankind has managed to attain immortality, childlessness and a tranquility that arises mainly from ignorance and stupidity. There is nothing so terrible as being boring, unoriginal, dull or settled. There is no disease, poverty, strife, warfare, mess, dirt, crime or death—unless the characters want to create them for the sake of amusement.This future world is both implaus [...]


    20. Book one of The Dancers at the End of Time. In the far future, humankind has gained the power of gods, and has stopped worrying about silly things like morality. The word "decadent" doesn't even have any meaning, because everything is decadent. Jherek Carnelian is no exception to this, but he does have some odd interests: he is fascinated by late 19th century culture, or at least what he perceives to be late nineteenth century culture. Since he knows about as much about the 19th century as we kn [...]


    21. I've made a point of buying several Moorcock books in my various trips to library sales. Given his outspokenness about various science fiction and fantasy writers, such as Heinlein and Tolkien, one might think that his own fiction would be a worthy counterpoint to such. Alas, if this book is an example of Moorcock's best work – as some have claimed – then I am loath to read any of the other books that I have picked up. (Though, I will still probably read some of the Elric series some point [...]


    22. In a future where there is no disease, old age, and the few humans left can live as long as they whant. In this future nothing is taken seriously. Then while at a party that hosting a alien thats been going to planets to worn the world that its going to end soon at the Dukes kingdom. The Alien is then captured by Lady Charlotina. Jherek Carnelian a 19th century specialist while at the party meet a young 19th century lady Mrs.Amelia Underwood and instantly falls in love with her. Jherek must lear [...]


    23. Part 1 of the Dancers At The End Of Time trilogy which is in turn part of a larger cycle, The Eternal Champion about the same person - or rather, the same archetypical anti-hero - being reborn in different times and contexts. In this particular one, he lives millions of years into the future, in a time when humanity has evolved and devolved to the point where we can do absolutely anything and think of absolutely nothing new - everything's roleplaying, everything's a game, including when they fin [...]


    24. I love Michael Moorcock and the Dancers at the End of Time series is no exception to that love. The story starts at the end of time (durrr), and shows how humanity has evolved into this useless yet incredibly powerful form.Using power generated by cities that were constructed far in the past, the people have complete and total control over everything around them. Because of this, they have become completely hedonistic and have no concept of morality. Matters are made worse by the fact that no on [...]


    25. My favourite 1970s science fiction book, bar none, and in many ways (IMHO), one of the best. Moorcock claims he wrote this as a riposte and critical response to the popularity of fantasy fiction like 'The Lord of the Rings', (which he called "epic Winnie-the-Pooh").The trilogy is a joy from start to finish - a bit like Steampunk written by New Romantics, the Earth is populated at the end of time by carefree dandies with god-like powers. I'd certainly like to live there. Droll, funny, inventive, [...]


    26. This is the first of the Dancers at the End of Time trilogy, and, like the others, is wonderful. These books are absurd and hilarious: delightfully silly. At some point, when I was rereading the second one, I started to read a particularly funny passage out loud to my mom and my friend who was living with us at the time, and ended up reading the entire book to thementire second one aloud to a friend and my mom, and it was even better and funnier read out loud than to yourself. The plot concerns [...]


    27. So I decided after reading the Dr Who Moorcock novel it would be nice to read some of his other books. I bought the Dancers at the End of Time trilogy while I was in Hay on Wye cause it had such a great title. This was a nice light fun book. A dying decedant society struggles to keep itself amused as they have all the power in the world and the galaxy is ending around them. They've totally lost contact with what it means to be "human", all done in a great ridiculous and light hearted way, as des [...]


    28. Interesting take on planet wide innocence that has been brought about through technological mastery and immortality (I assume Moorecock is suggesting that the peace and innocence of those at the end of time has come about due to their almost complete immortality and thus a personal lack of psychological trauma concerning an impending death). Because of this innocence, most of the book is as exciting as reading about a group of talking babies admiring each other jammies. Energy is infused towards [...]


    29. This book was completely amusing! It was absurd but not confusing, funny but not ridiculous, and very fun. I highly recommend it if you like sci-fi that doesn't take itself too seriously, mild satire, and time travel. I love fish-out-of-water stories, and the last third of the novel was a great example of what makes those tales so amusing. And it was smart too, behind the scenes. The cyclical nature of the story, the revolving confusion/misunderstandings of Amelia and Jherek, and the little twis [...]
