A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

The long-awaited first volume in a new series by Britain's master of fantasy is a strange beast indeed. Strongly autobiographical and a hall of mirrors reflecting Moorcock's own life and literary circles, it is also the tale of an apocryphal area of London, the Alsacia with at its heart a medieval Carmelite monastery, where time runs differently and characters from various periods of history as well as from the realms of popular fiction, coexist in in an unstable equilibrium, into which a callow tyro writer and journalist called Michael Moorcock ventures. Highwaymen, musketeers, roundheads, swordsmen and women, the cosmic balance between chaos and equilibrium: all Moorcock's idiosyncratic obsessions merge in a thrilling stew which blends pure adventure, myth and existential questioning. Where the next volume will take us is anyone's guess but, in the meantime, this is something quite unique. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
