The Eternal Champion
The Eternal Champion #2
by Michael Moorcock
DTB, 484 Pages
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Comprising 3 novels and 1 short story, this begins the lore of the multi-verse and the Eternal Champion.
2 stories deal with Erekose, 1 with a Von Bek and the short story deals with Tanelorn.
The Erekose stories were enjoyable as a foundation to the other Eternal Champion incarnations, and made the glimpses we see of Erekose in Elric and Corum that much deeper.
The Von Bek storyline dealt with the multiverse and the tone was scifi/psychological and didn’t really fit, in my opinion. Also didn’t seem to fit in with Moorcock’s Law, Chaos and the Great Balance schtick.
Definitely would recommend as a start before Elric or Corum. Even though it definitely would give spoilers for those 2 characters.
