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…
Son Of The Wolf is a revised retitling of The White Wolf’s Son (2005), third 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 Destiny’s Brother (both 2013). All three books’ revisions were later incorporated into an American omnibus, The Elric Saga Volume Three: The White Wolf (2022).
(Preceded by Destiny’s Brother)
