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…

The Skrayling Tree is the 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 The Elric Saga Part IV (2005), then it was retitled & revised as Destiny’s Brother (2013) and in this form was collected in Elric: The Moonbeam Roads (2014), before being re-collected (with revised texts but original titles) in The Elric Saga Volume Three: The White Wolf.

(Preceded by The Dreamthief’s Daughter)
