Second volume of what is probably Moorcock’s best-loved trilogy, ‘The Dancers At The End Of Time’, a lyrical, romantic comedy of errors in which the decadent, immortal inhabitants of Earth in its very last days meet the reluctant Victorian time-traveller, Mrs. Amelia Underwood.  It was collected in The Dancers At The End Of Time (1981) with An Alien Heat and The End Of All Songs.
