Michael Moorcock

Michael John Moorcock is an English writer and musician who lives in Texas and France. He is best known in the US for his novels about his characters The Eternal Champion & Elric of Melniboné, a seminal influence on the field of fantasy since the 1960s. Other significant works include the Jerry Cornelius series, Gloriana, the Pyat Quartet, Warlord of the Air, Dancers at the End of Time and Mother London. He is also a successful musician, contributing to the bands HawkwindBlue Öyster Cult and his own project, The Deep Fix.

As editor and publisher of the British literary science fiction magazine New Worlds, intermittently from  1964  to 1996, Moorcock fostered the development of the sf "New Wave". His publication of the novel Bug Jack Barron by Norman Spinrad as a serial in the magazine was notorious.  In Parliament British MPs condemned the Arts Council for funding the magazine.

 Moorcock has received many literary awards including the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement (2000), Prix Utopiales (2004), Bram Stoker Award (2005), SFWA Grand Master (2008). Also in 2008 The London Times newspaper named Moorcock as one of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".
