    One thought on “Elric: The Sleeping Sorceress”

    1. Really liked all three essays at the end of the book, illustrations are gorgeous, the sleeping Sorceress story was great.

    2. Introduction:Elric of Melniboné – The name and the character standout in my memory in ways that so many others do not. I’m quite certain that I read the Elric stories before any of Michael Moorcock’s other “Eternal Champion” tales. Originally in used paperbacks that bore the “Lancer” imprint. Later on, I’m sure I re-read them in the DAW issues. Because the two series of books have different issue order/numbering I was always a bit confused about the “correct sequencing” of t [...]

    3. I first encountered Elric back in high school -- borrowing a friend's paperbacks (DAW editions with the Michael Whelan covers), then later acquiring my own set (the Berkleys with the Robert Gould covers). At the time, he blew my mind, man, he blew! my! mind!I revisited Elric and his other incarnations many times over the years -- I was very happy when White Wolf started publishing the "complete" Eternal Champion series in hardcover. And now I'm revisiting the Doomed Albino Prince through the 6-v [...]

    4. "Elric of Melniboné. Traitor. Savior. Lover. Thief. Last king of a fallen empire whose cruelty was surpassed only by its beauty. Sustained by drugs and the vampiric powers of his black sword, Stormbringer, haunted by visions of a tragic past and a doomed future, Elric wanders the world in quest of oblivion."I know that a lot of folk adore Elric. I've read 4 or 5 of these novels now, and I am finding them rather repetitive. There is only so much moody brooding that I can handle from a main chara [...]

    5. İlk kitaptan başlayarak seriye devam ederken zaten büyük bir merak içerisindeydim ve kitap bu merak'ımı hala korumamı sağlıyor.İlk kitapta Elric'in yaşadığı olayların neden yaşandığını "FırtınaYaratan'a" nasıl sahip olduğunu merak ediyordum ve öğrenmek beni mutlu etti.Yaşanacak olayları ilk kitapta görmüş olup geçmişte onu tekrar anlatması o ana kadar olan olayları sana tekrar anlatması seni sıkmıyor(daha doğrusu beni hiç sıkmadı). Çünkü o anı tekra [...]

    6. At this point, I feel like I have a pretty good handle on Moorcock's Elric tales, and what I mostly feel is.tration. As has been repeatedly quoted, Moorcock describes himself as "a bad writer with big ideas" and that really does summarize the Elric stories to date. I've read all the earlier stories--earlier in terms of publication date, I mean; the chronology of these books is highly confusing, as Moorcock wrote a whole series of stories in the 60s starting with "The Dreaming City" which tell th [...]

    7. The Message of the Elric Saga, Presented in Three LinesElric: I have Great Expectations and with Stormbringer I shall Overcome All Obstacles! Destiny: Fuck. You. Stormbringer: Yeah. Fuck yourtain fallsyoutube/watch?v=XCxL3-

    8. This book contains two stories of note: "The Sleeping Sorceress" and "Elric of Melnibone". The former is a more conventional tale of Elric (if the term 'convention' can be used in reference to that haunted character), while the latter is a look at Elric before he became the bearer of the Black Sword, Stormbringer."The Sleeping Sorceress" has its share of poetic, dare I say 'enchanting' passages readers have come to expect in these narratives, such as: "At dawn the clouds had cleared and the sun [...]

    9. Originally published on my blog here in March 2003.Much of Moorcock's output consists of series, some written close together (the Runestaff, for example) others very stretched out (the John Daker / Erekose novels). The Elric series, his longest, are in both categories, most novels appearing in the early sixties, this novel in 1971 and The Revenge of the Rose twenty years later. The unusual aspect of the Elric chronology is that the internal order is sometimes different, with the two final novels [...]

    10. I haven't read all of the Elric Omnibuses yet (waiting to finish this one prior to starting the last one), but so far, this one is the best, even beating the novel "Stormbringer". We see the adventure of the Three Who Are One, our good buddies the Elementals (meeting the Earth King, Grome), and we at last see the origins of Elric's doom. Best of all, we actually get to see Cymoril for a respectable length of time, and I'm certain that this is the only time that either Mournblade or the Ship That [...]

    11. If you want to know about Elric, this is a good place to start.In this volume you can find the beginning of the Elric chronology starting with the very short 2003 story "And so the Great Emperor Received his Education" followed by Elric of Melnibone. As with the unfortunate way the Del Rey books are organized these stories start in the middle of the volume. The first half of this volume is what readers of the Daw books would remember as book four The Vanishing Tower.

    12. My favorite part was this at the end, because I was on a plane feeling melancholy. He really is a great character for when you're feeling doomed and whiny."And now, Elric had told three lies. . . . And upon those three lies was Elric's destiny to be built, for it is only about things which concern us most profoundly that we lie clearly and with profound conviction."

    13. Does a better job than some of the earlier books in the series in actually reprinting Elric material, though the overall ordering is still quite suspect. Of the two novels collected, Elric of Melniboné is good and The Sleeping Sorceress so-so, thus the book averages out to 6/10 on the whole.

    14. Oh, I really liked this one. The tale of how Elric came to be who he is when first we see him in volume 1. Brilliant stuff, really. If you like classic sword-and-sorcery, you could do much worse than to pick up Moorcock's Elric books and start reading!

    15. And still improving. I really enjoyed the drama and pathos of "The Sleeping Sorceress." Here the idea of Law and Chaos as opposed to Good and Evil are fleshed out better. Elric's self-titled origin story wasn't quite as compelling, but still very good.

    16. Favorite one in the series so far. Dives deeper into stories from the first book, and makes up for the bad second one.

    17. και κάπου ενώνεται με τους υπόλοιπους προμάχους και αφήνει υποψίες και ελπίδες οτι το Έπος συνεχίζεται
