Elric of Melniboné — proud prince of ruins, kinslayer — call him what you will. He remains, together with maybe Jerry Cornelius, Moorcock’s most enduring, if not always most endearing, character…

A Russian omnibus — unseen (unverified) — of two Elric novels: the first and last (see below); this combined-title edition is unique, with no English-language equivalent.

p. 3: Город Мечты (Elric Of Melniboné);
p. 125: Несущий Бурю (Stormbringer);
p. 300: Об Авторе (‘About The Author’; non-fiction) by В. Ponomarev.
