    • Introduction:Elric of Melniboné – The name and the character standout in my memory in ways that so many others do not. I’m quite certain that I read the Elric stories before any of Michael Moorcock’s other “Eternal Champion” tales. Originally in used paperbacks that bore the “Lancer” imprint. Later on, I’m sure I re-read them in the DAW issues. Because the two series of books have different issue order/numbering I was always a bit confused about the “correct sequencing” of t [...]

    • İlk Kitabına Göre Biraz Sönük Geldi Bana.İlk Kitabında Elric'e Alışıp Bu Kitapta Elric'i Fazla Görememek Beni Üzdü Diyebilirim İlk Kitabında Zaten Gerçekleşen Olaylardan Sonra Daha Fazla Ne Yapabilir Diyerek Merakla Okumaya Başladım Ama Yinede Kötü Bir Kitap Diyemem Elric'in Olmadığı Bazı Hikayelerde Fena Değildi.Fazla Söze Gerek Yok Benim 2. Kitap Hakkında Söylebileceklerim Bunlar Artık 3. Kitaba Bakacağız Umarım 2. Kitap Gibi Yazmamışsındır "Moorcock".

    • Başlarken umdumduğum şey bu değildi. Bu yüzden inanılmaz uzun aralıklarla okudum, okurken de yoruldum. Evet farklı hikayeleri de güzeldi fakat ben daha çok Elric okumayı beklediğim için sanırım kitaptan soğudum.

    • This excellent collection brings together several tales of Elric and the Eternal Champion in one of the best formats I have seen yet. While previous collections were more concerned about telling the tales in chronological order (which they were not written in), this collection series is collecting a variety of stories in each volume and adding in articles by Moorcock (or about Moorcock), and art from earlier printings. Each volume also includes art by a particular artist. I started with this vol [...]

    • I've been reading Science Fiction and Fantasy almost exclusively since I was 13. I didn't find Moorcock until I was in my late 20's. He is the quintessential Good vs Evil Fantasy writer. To say he's prolific is an understatement. I've started re-reading him recently. His universe (MULTI-verse) is perfectly constructed and the stories match perfectly. The Heroism is flawless. His dimensions are related to size, meaning worlds are separated by scale. To the best of my knowledge, he postulated this [...]

    • Ilk kitabı okuduktan sonra Moorcock'un kendini daha fazla geliştirmiş olmasını daha etkileyici hikayeler yazmış olmasını umuyordum ama malesef hayal kırıklığına uğradım. Eternal Champion olayı beni kendine çekemedi, çünkü Elric dışındaki hikayeler gerçekten sıkıcı ve çekilebilir gibi değil. Kitabı tamamlayamadan bıraktığım için üzgünüm. Belki ilerde kalan öyküleri de bitiririm. Şimdilik başka kitaba geçmeyi daha uygun buldum.

    • Volume 1 of the collected Elric Saga ended at an impasse: Elric of Melnibone had killed every living thing, slaughtered the gods, destroyed the universe and died hard to continue the series for five more volumes after an ending like that! Michael Moorcock, a fantasy/sci-fi visionary, refuses to let a thing like that hamper him, and expands the scope of Elric's word into the concept of an Eternal Champion, forever incarnated in new lives and personas across the multiverse. "To Rescue Tanelorn" is [...]

    • İçindekiler;-Ezeli Şampiyon-Lord Erekose, "Ezeli Şampiyon" ve klasik bir Moorcock hikayesiydi. Anlamsız romantizm kokan kopuk kopuk aksiyon sahneleri olan kötü bir hikaye. (2)-Tanelorn'u Kurtarmak-İçinde Elric'in olmadığı, okçunun, bir önceki kitaptan da hatırlanabilecek bir kahraman olan Racknir'in hikayesiydi. Kadim Tanelorn'u savunmak için çıkılan bir görev öyküsüydü. Bu hikayeden çok iyi bir oyun senaryosu olur/muş. Ayrıca felsefik diyalogları ve ilginç tasvirler [...]

    • I tried, and just couldn't do it. I think I got about 1/4 of the way through? The characters were cardboard and the writing overwrought. Sometimes I wish books were like movies and that a better author would reboot the Elric books and write them, well, better.

    • Premise: This is the second collected volume of stories, following Elric: The Stealer of Souls. These stories include several more Elric tales, a few other stories set in that world, and more stories on the theme of the Eternal Champion.I am beginning to think maybe some other reviewers had the right idea when they criticized these collections. I loved the first one, and I love the idea of reading the stories in publication order. There was a set of volumes that tried to arrange the stories in a [...]

    • As other reviewers have noted, not all of the stories pertain to the last emperor of Melnibone. Even the tales that do not involve characters drawn from Elric's world are still good, solid stories that are worth reading; "The Great Conqueror" and "Phase 1" come to mind. While neither will ever be confused with Moorcock's more noteworthy writings, both are interesting, entertaining pieces that offer worthy passages. From "The Great Conqueror": "I am not his enemy - he is mine." The quote serves a [...]

    • Basically, this is not really a book about Elric of Melnibone. If you read the Daw books, you'll probably be disappointed and if you haven't you'll leave this book wondering what's so great about Elric.There are really only 3 Elric stories in this volume: The Last Enchantment (very short), The Singing Citadel and The Jade Man's Eyes (not in Daw)Other stories in which Elric is a character include: Elric at the End of Time & The Black Blade's Song. I found both a bit boring.The other stories a [...]

    • I'm torn -- since there's no 3 1/2, I'll stick with four stars. On the down side, Elric is only in about half the book. The remainder includes such things as the original version of The Eternal Champion, the first Jerry Cornelius story (which was essentially a rewrite of the first Elric story) and the like. The Elric stories included, though, are top-notch. It's also interesting to read them in their original versions -- in many cases (The Jade Man's Eyes most noticeably), Moorcock revised them [...]

    • This is really more of an Eternal Champion collection, in which most of the stories are about the various iterations of Moorcock's primary character. His attempt to tie them all together into an overarching cosmic theme is interesting, given that he keeps each character true to his respective milieu even while madly mixing them around. But overall I found the stories less than appealing. Without the sense of exploring the world of Melnibone' and the Young Kingdoms, the assorted quests and advent [...]

    • Some of these stories are OK (though I think the mid 1960s where the heart of this volume comes from is the weakest area of Elric writing). However, the organization of this book is atrocious. It doesn't cover things in a chronological order, and it has way too much stuff that's off topic. This volume could serve to ruin this series as a whole.

    • Another batch of short stories featuring Elric although this time we get a few variations like Jerry Cornelius and other sword & sorcery deviations. All in all a good collection, but I have a hard time understanding how this series of collections is being laid out. Generally it is chronological, but then each one seems to start over in the past at a different point. Oh well, whatever.

    • 3.5 stars2013: Read story "Master of Chaos"2014: Read: Foreword, Introduction, "Master of Chaos", "The Stone Thing", "Elric at the End of Time", and "The Black Blade's Song"2016: Read: "The Singing Citadel", "To Rescue Tanelorn""To Rescue Tanelorn" has been one of my favorite stories even though it stars Rackhir instead of Elric.

    • Moorcock grew in this collection. Not the most powerful of his stories, but better. At first it bothered me to have his origins from "Jade Man's Eyes" later "retconned" out, but given the fluid nature of his multiverse, I don't mind it so much anymore. Good, creative work.

    • Kaikki tarinat eivät olleet 5 tähden arvoisia, mutta kokonaisuus on loistava. Kaikki tarinat eivät ole Elric tarinoita, joten tarinoissa on vaihtelevuutta. Kuvitus ja oheismateriaali tuo plussaa kokonaisuuteen.

    • Volume 1 - awesomeVolume 2 - where's Elric. This is a seemingly random bunch of stories loosely connected somehow to Elric, most of them not very good. A boring read and not encouraging me to read the next volume

    • The only story I found hard to get through was The Black Blade's Song, which didn't make much sense to me. The others were enjoyable as ever. Was pleasantly surprised by the newer stories towards the end of the collection.

    • A mix of Elric stories from the 60s to the aughts, plus some other stories by Moorcock that were somewhat related, featuring other characters from the Elric body of work. Seemed much less coherent than the first volume in this series of collections.

    • The second volume of the Elric chronicles contains less of the canonical Elric stories and more tangental "fluff," in my opinion, but still an excellent book for the sword-and-sorcery fan.

    • Essentially, my only qualm was the changing of the story "The Eternal Champion" -- I had read another, longer version of it first, which I had liked better.

    • A jumble of short stories that are partially based on Elric. They are from Moorcock's earlier works, and as such are kind of ~meh. This is ok but not great.

    • Michael Moorcock müthiş bir yazar. Bu kitaptaki hikâyelerin bir ikisi hariç kalanları müthiş bir hayal gücünün eseri. Yalnız kitabın çevirisi ve editörlüğü rezalet. Kepazelik
