Why this book?
This is the book that, more than any other, ignited my passion for alternative realities, what dwells within and what happens if those realities spill out. That was 45 years ago, and I still love all the Elric stories, but this one I feel captures the essence of who Elric is and the sacrifices he is doomed to make to bring back balance to the universe. Dark and moody, and featuring one of the all-time greatest sword and sorcery heroes in a complex, and collapsing universe, aided, and abetted by his companion Moonglum, and alternately empowered and betrayed by the rune sword Stormbringer.
