This one is my copy. Elric is the best. My love for Elric is deep and true.
There are some great chapter titles in this book: “Pale Prince on a Moonlit Shore,” “Things Which Are Not Women.”
This book is the very first Moorcock book I ever read (in this printing with this title and cover art), purchased from a second-hand bookshop in Evesham, Worcs. in about 1985 alongside a copy of Stormbringer. I didn’t know at the time but this is not it’s usual title, the book is more commonly known as The Vanishing Tower.
