4 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 Now, in London Peculiar and Other Nonfiction, Michael Moorcock personally selects the best of his published, unpublished, and uncensored essays, articles, reviews, and opinions covering a wide range of subjects: books, films, politics, reminiscences of old friends, and attacks on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.?

8 The Gaze of Orpheus
Barrytown/Station Hill 0930794370 / 9780930794378 PAPERBACK Fair 
0930794370 ~Good. No DJ. Ex-Library. Hardcover. Academic library markings/stamps; light to moderate shelf wear; satisfaction guaranteed. Writing about The Gaze of Orpheus, Geoffrey Hartman suggested that 'When we come to write the history of criticism for the 1940 to 1980 period, it will be found that Blanchot, together with Sartre, made French 'discourse' possible, both in its relentlessness and its acuity..This selection.is exemplary for its clearly translated and well-chosen excerpts from Blanchot's many influential books. Reading him now, and in this form, I feel once more the excitement of discovering Blanchot in the 1950s.
