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…

Destiny’s Brother is a revised retitling of The Skrayling Tree (2003), second 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 Daughter Of Dreams and Son Of The Wolf (both 2013).

(Preceded by Daughter Of Dreams)
