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…

Daughter Of Dreams is a British revised retitling of The Dreamthief’s Daughter (2001), first volume in a supplementary trilogy to the main Elric Saga — in fact the only preconceived Elric trilogy — linking the albino with various von Beks. It was collected in Elric: The Moonbeam Roads (2014) with Destiny’s Brother and Son Of The Wolf (both 2013). All three books’ revisions were later incorporated into an American omnibus, The Elric Saga Volume Three: The White Wolf (2022), and a revised Dreamthief’s… was also published there in 2023.
