Read full description of the books:
At times it reads as an experimental work: how little concrete information can Moorcock actually put on paper while retaining an accessible narrative? Whole swaths of ideas, from the nature of the machinoix to the Second Ether itself, hurl past, and the reader's imagination is left to construct a picture from the blur. You just sort of ride this story wherever it goes.
And, at its heart, it is yet another reformulation of Moorcock's core Multiverse / Law-and-Chaos concepts sliced a new way, or perhaps a superset of every idea he had presented along those lines. You can detect ideas from the Dancers at The End of Time, Nomad of the Time Streams, the Seas of Fate, and endless Eternal Champion tales. But the new element is a dollop of chaos theory and mathematics, which if possible renders the extra-cosmic adventuring even weirder and less explainable. There is so much here that stretches beyond human existence and understanding. I never had a clear picture in my head about what Moorcock was describing.

Read information about the authorMichael John Moorcock is an English writer primarily of science fiction and fantasy who has also published a number of literary novels.
Moorcock has mentioned The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Apple Cart by George Bernard Shaw and The Constable of St. Nicholas by Edward Lester Arnold as the first three books which captured his imagination. He became editor of Tarzan Adventures in 1956, at the age of sixteen, and later moved on to edit Sexton Blake Library. As editor of the controversial British science fiction magazine New Worlds, from May 1964 until March 1971 and then again from 1976 to 1996, Moorcock fostered the development of the science fiction "New Wave" in the UK and indirectly in the United States. His serialization of Norman Spinrad's Bug Jack Barron was notorious for causing British MPs to condemn in Parliament the Arts Council's funding of the magazine.
During this time, he occasionally wrote under the pseudonym of "James Colvin," a "house pseudonym" used by other critics on New Worlds. A spoof obituary of Colvin appeared in New Worlds #197 (January 1970), written by "William Barclay" (another Moorcock pseudonym). Moorcock, indeed, makes much use of the initials "JC", and not entirely coincidentally these are also the initials of Jesus Christ, the subject of his 1967 Nebula award-winning novella Behold the Man, which tells the story of Karl Glogauer, a time-traveller who takes on the role of Christ. They are also the initials of various "Eternal Champion" Moorcock characters such as Jerry Cornelius, Jerry Cornell and Jherek Carnelian. In more recent years, Moorcock has taken to using "Warwick Colvin, Jr." as yet another pseudonym, particularly in his "Second Ether" fiction.
