"[There are] those of us who have buttonholed strangers on the Underground and raved about Moorcock's masterpieces Byzantium Endures and The Laughter of Carthage" * Sunday Telegraph * "This is a rich, ambitious and erudite book" * Guardian * "His is the grand, messy flux itself, in all its heroic vulgarity, its unquenchable optimism, its enthusiasm for the inexhaustible variousness of things. Posterity will certainly give him that due place in English literature" -- Angela Carter * Guardian *
