ELRIC AT THE END OF TIME
Elric at the End of Time - an American variant of the British collection Sojan from 1984, containing 10 out of 15 stories/articles from that volume, and adding 2 other pieces. This sort of variant collections and borrowing back and forth for American/British editions is typical for many British writers of SF/Fantasy short stories. The book is divided into 3 sections, with the 6 "Sojan" stories not listed on the contents page, but grouped as "Sojan the Swordsman." The articles are about the author's circumstances and mindset at the times that he created 2 of his best-known characters.
(Introduction by Michael Moorcock)
The "Sojan" stories were Moorcock's first fantasy stories to be professionally published, in Tarzan Adventures 1957-1958. "The Last Enchantment" is a final Elric story, written in 1962 but not published until 1978 in Ariel #3. The remaining pieces came from Elsewhere (1981), Camber (1964), Triode (1975), or Sojan.
