Almost anyone who has read or written science fiction or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock. His grand sense of adventure and literary flair have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man. From the stories featuring his most memorable character Elric of Melnibone, and his many Eternal Champions to the iconic Jerry Cornelius, the power and importance of Moorcock's work cannot be denied. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon cite him as a major influence, and Moorcock helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and JG Ballard, while he was editor of New Worlds magazine. Tor Books now presents Moorcock's most ambitious novel series yet, an amazing tale of adventure that is rooted in autobiography. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man through the heart of fantastical storytelling, through a secret realm buried deep in the heart of London.
