May 2005

My essay entitled “Why We Should Care About Michael Moorcock’s Wizardry & Wild Romance: A Study of Epic Fantasy,” just published by Howard Andrew Jones at http://www.SwordandSorcery.org, has provoked the ire of Moorcock’s “Number 1 Fan” (as Kathy Bates of Stephen King’s Misery might say). To read the discussion, please visit the discussion forum at http://www.SFSite.com, specifically the topic on the sword and sorcery critique groups. Here’s a link:
