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). All three books’ revisions were later incorporated into an American omnibus, The Elric Saga Volume Three: The White Wolf (2022).
