New Elric story from Michael Moorcock

There’s a new Elric story in the current issue of Weird Tales. Looks like a great issue – also features an interview with China Míeville, H.P. Lovecraft and Dune.

I might subscribe!

Elric was one of my favourite fantasy anti-heroes when I was a kid – exactly I think because he was an anti-hero – both good and bad and obviously that appealed to a teenage kid.
