SORCERER'S AMULET [h2]
Great cover by Jeff Jones. It is really hard to find a copy with this cover in good shape.
Sorcerer's Amulet by Michael Moorcock. A first edition copy of the second book in his science-fantasy series about Dorian Hawkmoon (later collected in The History of the Runestaff, a.k.a. Hawkmoon.) This was retitled The Mad God's Amulet for the 1969 British edition and all later appearances. From the beginning of Part Two (quoted insided cover): The Warrior in Jet and Gold raised a gauntleted hand to point at Dorian Hawkmoon. "You seek your betrothed, Yisselda, Duke Dorian. And you quest for the Mad God." ... "Is Yisselda a prisoner of the Mad God?" ... "Yes. But you must seek the Mad God for another reason." The Warrior in Jet and Gold shifted in his saddle. "Before Yisselda may be yours again, you must destroy the Mad God. You must destroy him and rip the Red Amulet from his throat - for the Red Amulet is rightfully yours. And only with the amulet can you have the power of the Runestaff, the power you shall need if you are ever to succeed against the forces of the Dark Empire..."
