In a career that spans more than five decades, Michael Moorcock has done more than any writer to demolish the confines of genre in English Literature. His prodigious output has made an indelible impact on the science fiction of the golden age and the literature of the counter-culture. More recently his work has radically revised the London of our shared experience and created startling new readings in the history of the last century. Now Moorcock introduces an anthology of breathtaking scope and ambition iin which he seeks out new connections between the fiction, poetry and journalism that has informed and covertly constructed the imaginative landscape in which we live. From creation of the Yellow Book to the radical feminism of Andrea Dworkin, from teh mars of Edgar Rice to plans for an inland sea in the heart of the Sahara, from the high modernism of the mid-century to Moorcock's Miscellany is an anthology unlike any before conceived. The Miscellany is both a personal guide to the literature that has inspired one of our greatest writers and a history of our times seen through a study of its unacknowledged legislation.
