is one of those rare fantasies that merits repeated reading with, each
time, a different facet of its full meaning to be derived.”
A great insightful review in Infinity Plus magazine by John Grant
A long interview with Michael Moorcock, and a review of The Dreamthief’s Daughter are currently on The Zone.
“The Dreamthief’s Daughter takes
as its subject the fantasy genre, its historical roots and its
relationship with the real world. When I began, I wondered if there was
anything more to say about Elric and the multiverse that hadn't already
been covered in Moorcock’s many explorations of the setting. It would
be easy for a writer like Moorcock to rest on his laurels and turn out
potboiling sequels, but this novel covers new ground and provides fresh
insight into the character, the setting, and the fantasy genre. This is
the first in a trilogy and I await the future episodes with great
interest.” --The Zone
“There are scenes of beauty and power, and serious ruminations on humankind’s capacity for great dreams and profound horrors . . . [Moorcock has] the remarkable ability to take wildly divergent materials, weave them together and make them work--in Moorcockian terms, bringing Law and Chaos into Balance.”

revelation, magic and intrigue, we were chosen to publish the limited
edition of The Dreamthief's Daughter.

the von Bek line and Oona, the Dreamthief's Daughter, who together with
Elric, seek to save the Multiverse from the machinations of Prince

will bring the forces of both Law and Chaos to bear against the Balance.
the combined souls of Ulric and Elric can triumph, as Stormbringer and
