Not a book edited by Michael Moorcock, as such, this was in fact a cynically cobbled-together ‘anthology’ of short (mostly) fiction from two issues of New Worlds, the seminal speculative fiction magazine which Moorcock edited for many years and with which he remains closely associated.

(N.B. The book is split into two parts, each separately paginated; there is no page 1 or 2 in either part.)
