    1. Sixth and final of Del Rey s series collecting all of Michael Moorcock s Elric stories other miscellanea n.b except for the novels of the Dreamquest trilogy, which were still in print and so didn t really need to be rescued by inclusion in this series plus TOR probably wouldn t have agreed There are three major works in this volume The Revenge of the Rose from 1991, which was the last Elric novel until the Dreamquest novels began appearing, a previously unpublished screenplay from 1964 or so for [...]

    2. I just finished reading Black Petals , one of the novellas included in this volume I thoroughly enjoyed it Chronologically, this story comes after the events in The Dreaming City and While the Gods Laugh which were some pretty epic events in Elric s story and I won t give them away here in case you haven t read them yet In this tale, Elric travels upriver into the jungles of an exotic land in search of the ruins of an ancient civilization where he hopes to find a black lotus flower that can cure [...]

    3. I loved it, of course, There was a large gap of time between my read of the first three volumes and the last 3, and mostly I want to go back and read the first 3 again This particular tale is a little different from the typical Elric story, but I loved it nonetheless The metaphor for modern capitalism near the beginning is unsubtle but delightful He mentions in an essay later in the book that he was always weaving social commentary into his books that not everyone seemed to grasp, which only mak [...]

    4. This is review for all of the omnibus and I have to say if you want to visit some romantic heroism in sword and sorcery filled universe you better read all the series It will give you not only great stories about Elric and his reincarnation in parallel worlds, but also background info how much Elric stories have influenced whole fantasy scene and also culture in general Here is a good example Blue Oyster Cult Black Blade youtube watch v XCxL3 lyrics by Michael Moorcock.

    5. _Revenge of the Rose_ is the primary work of this, the last of the Elric collection Another multiversal romp, one in which Moorcock guest stars several of his recurring characters from throughout his fantasy fiction He also begins his retcon of the origins of the Melniboneans, one he furthers in _Making of a Sorcerer_ I m not sure how I feel about the revision But the work itself is a solid tale.

    6. A great conclusion to this series of reprints What s wonderful about these volumes, aside from the core stories and novels, are the bonus material essays, scripts, rare drawings This one includes the conclusion to Moorcock s Aspects of Fantasy essays from the 60s, and a script for an unmade Stormbringer film from the 70s which, oddly, resembles The Eternal Champion novel in its plot.

    7. A really haphazard mess with relatively mediocre content The Reader s Guide and Black Petals are the main exceptions.Overall, I hate Del Rey s organization of the Elric series It makes sense in no way Go dig up the older White Wolf volumes or the Del Rey volumes.

    8. This series has the potential to confuse newcomers to Elric, but for existing fans the bonus material adds welcome insight into the creation of the series.
