Jerry Cornelius is a scientist, a rock star, and an assassin. The Steel Tsar is the third novel in the Oswald Bastable trilogy, A Nomad of the Time Streams, by Michael Moorcock. He is the hippest adventurer of them all: tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings, murder, sex and drugs are a daily occurrence. Along with his savvy and ruthless partner-in-chaos, Miss Brunner, Cornelius is on a mission to control a revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being, a modern messiah- the final programme. It is a sequel to The Land Leviathan and was originally published in the United Kingdom by Granada Books.

Chapter One What the Sea God Discarded. Chapter Two The Gathering at Kalenwyr. Chapter Three Lywm-an-Esh. Corum certainly seemed a being bent on vengeance and he was, indeed, pledged to avenge his murdered family by slaying Earl Glandyth-a-Krae, servant of King Lyr-a-Brode of Kalenwyr, who ruled the South and the East of the continent once ruled by the Vadhagh.

Awesome condition. Better than advertised. Haven't had a chance to read this version in this printing for 20 years.
"The Swords Trilogy" was the first book I ever read by Michael Moorcock. I took it camping and read it in my tent by flashlight. The individual three books must be very short because the trilogy-in-one-volume is pretty short. But there are no signs of abridgement.

"Swords" is at once familiar and unfamiliar. Stereotypes and cliches abound, but they are always somehow different. There is usually a certain comfort level with elements of the story while you simultaneously feel that this is new ground you have never walked before. Basically this is high fantasy that reads like sword and sorcery. The story is big - global in scope and covering many years. But at its core it's about one man trying to get revenge for the murder of his family and the amputation of his own arm and eye. This is a gritty, adult story with some gruesome violence; but I don't think that it would be in any way inappropriate for someone in middle school.

This book introduced me to Moorcock's other character Elric, and I intend to read some of the Elric books now.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes stories about a guy killing people with a sword. I don't care if you like high fantasy, sword and sorcery, or historical novels: if you like guys killing each other with swords then you'll love this book. The magic eye and hand are just a bonus.
Michael Moorcock, The Swords Trilogy (Berkley, 1971)
Michael Moorcock here introduces us to another aspect of the Eternal Champion, Corum of the Scarlet Robe. Corum fits the Eternal Champion mold well in the first three books of this six-book series-he's a chap who's rather like the rest of his race, normal from that perspective, but whose race is somewhat divorced from (older than, as are Elric's race) the humans who share a planet with them. While devoid of supernatural powers himself, he gains them in the pursuance of a quest. Also like Elric, Corum's destiny, in the first books, is shaped by the Dukes of Hell-Arioch, Xiombarg, and Mabelrode. He also has a trusty sidekick (in this case, Jhary-a-Conel, who does make a brief appearance with Corum at the very end of The Vanishing Tower in the Elric series). In other words, you've got an inkling of what's going on here simply because this is an Eternal Champion series and you've already read the Elric books. (You have, haven't you? If not, go do so.)
Moorcock does throw in a few elements to keep you guessing. Corum serves Law, rather than Chaos (as Elric does), and doesn't have any of the fatal weaknesses at the beginning of the book that other manifestations of the Champion do. The variations lead to great musing from the reader over the true nature of the Eternal Champion and why it's so changeable. While this is an excellent thing, and raises the stakes for the whole extended family of books, these three tales themselves (available separately as The Knight of the Swords, The Queen of the Swords, and the King of the Swords) often follow the same formulae as the Elric novels, and thus become predictable. That doesn't make them any less fun. But one wonders whether there could have been something more to them, that ineffable something that sent the Elric novels to heights unmatched in fantasy since J. R. R. Tolkein. Whatever it is, there's far less of it here. *** ½
These books are like what high level D&D adventures would be all about! Interplanar travel? check Horrifying foes? check sinister magic users? check gods playing chess with mortals ? check stay with elric 1-6 corum 1-3 (this book) and hawkmoon and moorcock will astound you. His later works I think are ghostwritten and lack soul, but this stuff is what legends are made of!! Astounding it has not made it to film just astounding.
