Michael Moorcock


Hawkmoon is actually the third book in the Eternal Champion series. The writing and flow of the story was rough at times, and almost comic-bookish in the characterizations, but I enjoyed the book for the sheer imagination of Moorcock's world. The characters go against popular American/English stereotypes, which doesn't seem that unusual today.

However, at the time that Michael Moorcock began writing this series, World War II had been over less than twenty years and yet in Hawkmoon, the English are the bad guys and the title heroic character is a German. Moorcock's vision of the progression of history is mostly decadant, but interesting, thought-provoking and a bit disturbing. I next plan on reading the first book in the series. I would consider it lightweight reading, but enjoyable.
