Just thought I'd let people know that the missing in action Des Lewis has started a real time review of Lost Places. So far he seems to like it...

Yes, I liked it very much indeed. Congratulations, Simon, on such a wonderful book.

For personal reasons, I particularly liked the 'non-fiction' one. As I promised to write to the author about further evidence in that review - I was sitting in the restaurant at Forton Service Station (I forget exactly when - but probably some time in 1967) - but it was probably in the Small Hours - half-chatting, half-writing the mad poems I wrote in those days and saw a strange figure coming out of the gents loo and then vanishing in mid-walk. My companion also saw it - and we both described it as lady with a large hat.
But in the Sixties, students tended to see some very strange things. But I was cold stone sober and never took drugs.

Cool, cheers - I'm doing an updated edition of it for my reading in the Cancer Research shop in October, so this is really useful. I've found some other really odd stuff since writing it up last year, including video footage of something strange in the restaurant windows!

Glad you liked Lost Places, Des, and thanks for such a great review.

My review of The Life of Polycrates & Other Stories for Antiquated Children by Brendan Connell is now finished:
http://nullimmortalis.wordpress.com/2011/04/08/the-life-of-polycrates-other-stor ies-for-antiquated-children/

I am receiving some great stories for the Ha the Ha. It may well turn out *literally* to be the Horror Anthology of Horror Anthologies as well as being stories *about* Horror anthologies.

My reviewing of THE DARK TOWER series by Stephen King continues apace. This seems to be a major work of Fantasy in English, but it is hardly ever mentioned. And if you enjoyed LOST, for example, I am sure you will enjoy this. And DR WHO. Though it is essentially unique.

I appreciate your enthusiasm, Des, but the thought of ploughing through the whole 'Dark Tower' series just doesn't appeal to me.

Stephen King has become too much of a whore for my liking - having to try his hand at every popular writing genre; horror, sci-fi, fantasy, crime, e-books, half-assed TV screenplays, music collaborations, etc.

I would much prefer it if he stuck to what he is good at instead of trying to be all things to all men. The rot set in, for me, in the late 80s/early 90s when his fame became somewhat ridiculous and began to eclipse his undoubted talent.

Time to put the Stephen King brand to bed and, if he wants to keep writing and remain relevant, adopt another pseudonym and go back to basics without even telling his publisher. Go on man, we all know you have it in you... cut the crap and get sharp again, like the old days.

Stevie, I feel that THE DARK TOWER is a masterpiece and it has entered my top three novel series: along with Proust's IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME and Lawrence Durrell's AVIGNON QUINCUNX.

Wow!! Praise indeed!

I've only read the short story that was in 'Everything's Eventual' and it really didn't do anything for me - too formulaic imo. I had similar problems with 'The Talisman'. It felt like someone struggling to write epic fantasy when it obviously wasn't his usual style - like a forced stylistic exercise rather than writing for the fun of it. Only my own opinion of course.

My own favourite novel series are all too predictable but that does not reduce their greatness one jot:

1. 'The Lord Of The Rings' by J.R.R. Tolkien
2. 'The Dune Chronicles' by Frank Herbert
3. 'The Marlowe Books' by Raymond Chandler
3. 'The Ripley Books' by Patricia Highsmith
4. 'The Chronicles Of Narnia' by C.S. Lewis
5. 'His Dark Materials' by Philip Pullman
5. 'The Pandora Sequence' by Frank Herbert
6. 'The Foundation Saga' by Isaac Asimov

While waiting in the wings I have; 'The Sherlock Holmes Books' (haven't read anything like them all), 'The Zimiamvian Trilogy', Lewis's 'Space Trilogy', Heinlein's 'Future History Series', 'The Gormenghast Trilogy', Golding's 'To The Ends Of The Earth', 'The Factory Series', 'The Books Of The Art' by Clive Barker (hopefully to be finished soon, please, Clive) & as of recent days 'The Bryant & May Mysteries'. I'm sure I've forgotten some.

Maybe one day I'll give 'The Dark Tower' a whirl.

Anyone else have their thoughts on great novel series? Always either a brave or self-indulgent move on the part of any author.

Great novel series? The two at the top of my list would be:

1 The Tale of the Eternal Champion by Michael Moorcock. No idea how many books - the set I have runs to 14 volumes of omnibus editions. Obviously not all are pearls but as a body of work it's out of this world.

2 The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant by Stephen Donaldson. I'm not going to read the final chronicles until I have all the books but the first two / six books are volumes I've revisited since the age of 12 and I still love them.

Phillip Farmer's Riverworld series - well for the first three at least. He started contradicting himself a bit after that.

Thanks, John, how could I have forgotten 'The Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant'! Read it in my late teens and was enthralled by it. Does it still stand up today? I tried some of Donaldson's later sci-fi stuff but wasn't gripped by it at all.

Other teenage favs I forgot were PJF's 'Riverworld Series' (ta, Weber), Julian May's 'Saga Of The Exiles' & best of the lot, Ursula K. Le Guin's 'Earthsea Trilogy'. The kind of stuff I hoovered up as a lad. I suppose I could also include Tom Sharpe's 'Henry Wilt Saga' & ACD's Prof. Challenger books.

That list is going to need some re-jigging...

I always found Michael Moorcock frighteningly prolific and have yet to read a single thing by him.

Stevie if you read one thing of Moorcock's then read the original novella version of 'Behold the Man'(not the SF masterworks version, although that will do in a pinch). Later books like Gloriana and Mother London are complex assured ambitious pieces of work but Behold the Man was the one that blew me away.

I've actually been looking at that recently in the SF Masterworks edition. Are you saying the original 1966 version is better than the expanded 1969 version.

I always tend to go for the longer version of works. I'm reading C.S. Lewis's 'That Hideous Strength' at the minute and had to wait years until I got a copy of the unabridged version. It's great by the way.

I always found Michael Moorcock frighteningly prolific and have yet to read a single thing by him.

That was my initial problem with Moorcock. I just didn't know where to start. So I went with BEHOLD THE MAN and was staggered. An outstanding piece of work. There is a decent 'Best of...' collection kicking about just now which, I believe, includes the original version of BEHOLD THE MAN.

Unfortunately, I didn't get on very well with the Jerry Cornelius books. BREAKFAST IN THE RUINS (the sort-of sequel to Behold...) is messy, but fascinating. MOTHER LONDON and KING OF THE CITY are slowly creeping up my to-be-read pile.

Stevie - the original novella is best - published in New Worlds #166 or there's a 30th anniversary hardback from MoJo Press. But if not the expanded SF Masterworks is still a pretty good read.

John - I'm not sure if I'll ever 'get' the Jerry Cornelius books - they're too stream of consciousness for me I think. I have the collection of stories by Spinrad etc but don't understand any of them!

Breakfast in the Ruins is a bit of a mess but is definitely still worth a read.

I made it through THE FINAL PROGRAMME, John, which was enjoyably deranged. But the second one - A CONDITION OF MUZAK? - was beyond me.

I suppose that when you're as ludicrously prolific as Moorcock was in his prime you're going to be a bit hit and miss!

I think so. I managed The Final Programme once I read somewhere that it was the Elric story written as SF! I've got the Cornelius Quartet but made it no further than that and some of A Cure for Cancer, where I got totally lost!

But when his stuff works it's amongst the best I've ever read. I love his Dancers at the End of Time sequence and his Sword and Sorcery novels that weren't written at the rate of 15000 words a day are densely packed adult fantasies.

A CURE FOR CANCER, yes, that's the one that finished me as well. Sounds like we made it to about the same point before packing it in.

Yet to read DANCERS AT THE END OF TIME, which I quite like the look of, but am daunted by the length.

Moorcock is the king. I discovered him when I read "Phoenix in Obsidian" back wen I was knee high to a grasshopper and consumed up every other Moorcock I could get my hands on.

"Mother London" is a masterpiece, as is the glorious "Stormbringer" but best of all is "The Black Corridor"

Oddly enough Rhys, your story may actually have helped me to appreciate the Jerry Cornelius canon - I shall have to re-read some of it and see.

*Very* good story though - thanks for posting the link!

Thanks John!

I have recently been reading Mikhail Bulgakov's A Country Doctor's Notebook and I thought of you. If you haven't already read it, I recommend it... A graduate fresh from medical school is posted to a remote hospital which he has to run on his own; he has to diagnose grim illnesses, perform operations, deliver babies, etc.

It's partly based on Bulgakov's own youthful experiences as a doctor. As the book progresses the stories get darker...

But it might be the case that you already know Bulgakov's book; or don't care to read anything hospital-related (a busman's holiday isn't always the nicest kind of vacation)...

I know you have a daft sense of humour. So I take the liberty of also recommending a different book, perhaps the funniest example of 'English' humour I've ever encountered...

If you can get the edition that also includes Bowman's other novel, The Cruise of the Talking Fish, even better!
