The Whispering Swarm by Michael Moorcock
February 29, - Published on Amazon. This is a book that almost certainly shouldn't work, yet does so beautifully. There are hints that the "Michael Moorcock" of the novel is not Michael Moorcock, the author - shifting his birth date by a couple of months, for instance - but the book plays with the notion that Moorcock, the rationalist, was in some way seduced by the attractions of romanticism, going so far as to attempt a rescue of King Charles II - despite Moorcock's own avowed anarchism and despite, of course, the discrepancy in historical epochs.

The history of London is very much a part of this book, but it's a skewed history, whether dealing with Moorcock's own supposed autobiography, or the denizens of the mysterious Sanctuary of the White Friars. Fiction and reality mix in a way that recalls European authors - Vian, perhaps, who gets a name-check in the book - rather than conventional modern fantasy.
Still, the touch is light, the story is fun, the deeper meanings accessible yet unresolved. It is a great pleasure to see an author who could clearly rest on his laurels, if he wanted to, embarking on a wholly new venture, in once again an entirely unexpected direction.
August 29, - Published on Amazon. A mystical autobiography. Secret back streets, allying with highwaymen, adventures thick and fast. I can't wait for Book Two.
The Sanctuary of the White Friars
March 14, - Published on Amazon. I certainly hope Mr. Moorcock gives us more of this story. Extremely educational, for one about his childrens' age, who grew up in New York. I re-read it immediately, and am beginning it again.
September 2, - Published on Amazon. Mixing memoir with fantasy and giving food for thought, Mr Moorcock supplies another enjoyable book, as is his wont. Both rollicking and pensive, The Whispering Sword gives a doubled view of London, and of the imaginative mind, as well as glimpses of a deeper soul. I hope to enjoy Book Two in the not too distant future. Go to Amazon. Discover the best of shopping and entertainment with Amazon Prime.
