Terminal Café
What's New?

If you think your universe is confusing, you should try keeping up with events in the Multiverse! While not exhaustive, you will find here a reasonable summary of current events in the Moorcockian-corner of the Multiverse. Want to know what Mr. Moorcock has been up to recently? Or want to know what books, stories, articles and the like are being published currently? Then the News section is the place you'll find it. Furthermore, in a site such as this it is often hard to keep track of the seemingly random patterns of change that the site is subject to. So, to ease the stress generates by this, you will be able to find details of the pages that have been recently updated, and a link to them in the Updated Pages at the Café side. And its all absolutely free!

Ahem.

News

13 July 2001. I've got some catching up to do! See the other side of the page for more details about the status of the Cafe.
Since the last update, King of the City, Silverheart, The Dreamthief's Daughter, and London Bone have been published. All excellent and worth getting if you haven't already.

28 January 2000. The current issue of Interzone (No 151 January 2000) is a Special Issue, containing RavenBrand (an edited version of the first few chapters of The Dreamthief's Daughter), Furniture and The "Fictionmags" Rants (a selection of emails from Mike, discussing the history of fiction magazines). Also, Nomads of the Timestreams has released a book entitled "moorcock@60.com", which contains sixty reminiscinces by Mike's friends over the years, celebrating Mike's 60th birthday in December last year. Happy birthday for last month, Mike!

29th August 1999. Michael has just started work on The Dreamthief's Daughter, the newest Elric book. Keep an eye on this page, as I'll perhaps include some teasers as the book takes shape.

10th August 1999. According to Mike, he has just typed "The End" in King of the City - meaning he's finished it. Now there is some final editing to be done and suchlike, and then it will really be done. Still, don't expect it for a while yet. Watch this space for details concerning the publisher and price, etc.

15th June 1999. Perhaps the most exciting going-on at present is the nearing to completion of King of the City. This is certainly one to look forward to - having read several chapters, I would hazard a guess that this will be one of the Best books he has ever written.

Elric fans will be happy, no doubt, to hear that there are three new Elric novels on the boil:- The Dreamthief's Daughter, The Silverskin, and Mournblade. Expect them to start being published by late 2000, early 2001.

In the near future there will be a new Jerry Cornelius story, The Camus Referendum, that Michael has recently finished, published in the magazine Gare du Nord. This magazine has already published some of the early chapters from King of the City.

A new Jerry Cornelius story has been published in Interzone Issue 137, November 1998, called Cheering for the Rockets..

There is a new Jerry Cornelius story which has been published on the Internet, called The Spencer Inheritance, which is published by The Edge. There is also a fairly long interview with Michael here, as well.

At present, Moorcock is working on the last few chapters of Vengeance of Rome, the last novel in the Between the Wars series, though it won't be published until 2000.

Michael is also working on a novel set in London, called King of the City. Don't expect that until 2000 as well. There has been an excerpt published in the magazine Gare du Nord.

The comic, 's Multiverse has run to a full twelve issues, and has now finished.

Updated Pages at the Café

13 July 2001. The Cafe hasn't received an update for quite some time now, and for that, I apologise. There were many factors contributing to this, the most relevant being that an intirely new version of Terminal Café, entitled cafeSquared (or Terminal Cafe 2) has been in production for some time. There have been many delays with it, but it is now almost all complete. This site will contain sections concerning other authors besides Mike - but fear not, the Moorcock section will be expanded upon and not neglected - indeed, it will still be the central axis of the website. Besides that, there are a few other interesting things around the corner, which you'll have to keep your eyes peeled for!

17th March 2000. Realised that I forgot to change the links to my e-mail address - I've fixed it now, but for reference it is:- info@novymir.com.au.

30th January 2000. Added an image of the Moorcock family (an impression assembled by me), to the Introduction page. Added the current draft cover for King of the City. Added several cover scans including The Fireclown, The Silver Warriors, The Swords of Heaven the Flowers of Hell. Added a review of the Sundered Worlds by Langdon Jones.

27th January 2000. Long time no updates. Added an interesting review of The Fireclown by none othere than James Colvin (ie Moorcock) from New Wortlds. Added the blurb from the first published version of The Wrecks of Time from New Worlds.

10th August 1999. Large update this time. Added an interview with Barrington Bayley to the associates page. Added two new sections, Films and Comics (the comics section is yet to be completed, and is currently empty). A new page in the Music section about The Bellyflops. Langdon Jones generously donated some excellent photos for the site - some can be found on the Group 65 page and The Bellyflops page. Other new photos are scattered about the site (I'll let you find them yourself).

18th June 1999. Added a guestbook. Please, if you like the site, or if you want to make any requests or other comments, sign it.

15th June 1999. Again, I have done some tweaking on various pages of the site - nothing major. I've added several new cover scans, which I won't list here. Also, I'm almost ready for a larger update including (finally!) some finished analytical essays. About time!

I have meddled a little with the book listings, so you can now click on the title of a book or story and be taken straight to it. Not too exciting, but it took ages to index the whole lot! I hope it makes things a little more simple. I have also added more cover scans of the books - I've almost got all of the primary novels up now - now I just have to chase up all of the books that other people have borrowed :^) ...

I have added information concerning the three new Elric Books:- The Dreamthief's Daughter, The Silverskin, and Mournblade to the Elric Page.

Added the Friends, Relations and Inspirations page, which contains information concerning the albums Moorcock has appeared on, and those upon which he has been of some influence.

There has been a whole new section added, detailing the various anthologies that are (and have been) available. You will find them here.
