6 London Peculiar and Other Nonfiction; PM Press 1604864907 / 9781604864908 PAPERBACK

New 

1604864907 Voted by the London Times as one of the best writers since 1945, Michael Moorcock was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize and won the Guardian Fiction Prize. He has won almost all the major Science Fiction, Fantasy, and lifetime achievement awards including the ?Howie,? the Prix Utopiales and the Stoker. Best known for his rule-breaking SF and Fantasy, including the classic Elric and Hawkmoon series, he is also the author of several graphic novels. Now, in London Peculiar and Other Nonfiction, Michael Moorcock personally selects the best of his published, unpublished, and uncensored essays, articles, reviews, and opinions covering a wide range of subjects: books, films, politics, reminiscences of old friends, and attacks on new foes. Drawn from over fifty years of writing, including his most recent work from the pages of the Los Angeles Times, and the Guardian, along with obscure and now unobtainable sources, the pieces in London Peculiar and Other Nonfiction showcase Moorcock at his acerbic best. They include: ?London Peculiar,? an impassioned statement of Moorcock?s memories of wartime London. The architectural ?improvements? wrought by the rebuilding of the city after World War Two brought cultural changes as well, many to the detriment of the city?s inhabitants. Review of R. Crumb?s Genesis, previously unavailable in English, this lengthy review of the underground comic artist?s retelling of the first book of the Bible leads Moorcock to address nostalgia for the sixties. "A Child's Christmas in the Blitz" ?An autobiographical recounting of Moorcock's childhood in wartime London, with memories of the freedom and hardships he encountered during the bombings, and the happy times he spent with his parents. These, along with dozens more, make this a collection Moorcock fans won?t want to miss, and the perfect introduction for new readers who will soon discover why Alan Moore (Watchmen) says: ?Moorcock seizes the 21st century bull by its horns and wrestles it into submission with a Texan rodeo confidence.?

Light to moderate shelf wear to covers/corners; satisfaction guaranteed. Hardcover lacking the Dust Jacket. In 1856, the Atlantic or Saturday Club was created to launch and support The Atlantic Monthly. This new magazine was edited by Holmes's friend James Russell Lowell, and articles were contributed by the New England literary elite such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Lothrop Motley and J. Elliot Cabot.[86] Holmes not only provided its name, but also wrote various pieces for the journal throughout the years.[69] For the magazine's first issue, Holmes produced a new version of two of his earlier essays, "The Autocrat at the Breakfast-Table". Based upon fictionalized breakfast table talk and including poetry, stories, jokes and songs,[87] the work was favored by readers and critics alike and it secured the initial success of The Atlantic Monthly.[88] The essays were collected as a book of the same name in 1858 and became his most enduring work,[89] selling ten thousand copies in three days.[90] Its sequel, The Professor at the Breakfast-Table, was released shortly after beginning in serialized installments in January 1859.
