Book Review: The Sailor on the Seas of Fate

Sailor on the Seas of Fate cover

This is my third Elric book, and so far it’s my favorite.  Moorcock is very hit and miss with me, and this one is definitely a hit.  This isn’t really a novel so much as a collection of stories about Elric off on weird adventures.

It’s a bit odd to me that in three Elric books, he’s spent two books away from what I thought was his stomping grounds.  In this one, he’s not even on the same world for a big chunk of it. It has that whole sequence where Elric hangs with three other incarnations of the Eternal Champion, which is super crazy.

Stormbringer feels like much more of a character in this one than it has been before, and we get more sense of Elric’s tragedy.  I hope more of these books are like this.

 

I read this as part of the White Wolf collection Elric: Song of the Black Sword, which is where I also read Elric of Melnibone and The Fortress of the Pearl.

 

Check out my Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads.  And take a look at my Patreon page, where I’m working on a novel and developing a tabletop RPG setting. You can also read my fiction over on Amazon.
