Fantastic Books: Acquisition: Michael Moorcock

I'm pleased to announce that my latest editorial acquisition for Fantastic Books consists of five out-of-print novels by none other than Michael Moorcock.  As someone who has been a fan of Mr. Moorcock's writing for some years, I must confess that this is very exciting for me, on both a professional and personal level.  Mr. Moorcock is one of the true giants and innovators in our field, and I am honored to be working on these books.  The deal has been in the works for a while, but we've finally gotten to the point where the publisher has given me to go-ahead to make this news public.  

The novels we'll be bringing back into print are the following:

The Sundered Worlds

The Distant Suns

The Twilight Man

The Wrecks of Time
The Fireclown

Characters such as Jerry Cornelius and Count Renark Von Bek --a couple of important cogs in Mr. Moorcock's vast and popular Multiverse--will be among the characters found in these books.  I'm looking forward to reintroducing these works to Mr. Moorcock's older fans, and perhaps acquainting his younger fans with these novels for the very first time.  I expect to begin work on the books this week.  As soon as we have a publication date, we will of course make that known.
