Michael Moorcock celebrates the release of ELRIC: CITADEL OF FORGOTTEN MYTHS

One of our favourite recurring guests, legendary fantasy author Michael Moorcock, returns to Forbidden Planet TV for a late-night conversation with Andrew Sumner about many things, beginning with the publication of his long-awaited Elric novel: The Citadel of Forgotten Myths. Mike tells Sumner how he’s feeling about his first new Elric tale for 12 years – before getting into a wide-ranging conversation about many things: the essence of creativity; the glorious elasticity of the human liver; Mike’s dark times writing Byzantium Endures; the potentially corrosive effect of hero worship; Lewis Shiner’s rock & roll novels; Lemmy’s autobiography White Line Fever; hanging out at The Flamingo Club in 60s Soho; the brilliance of Georgie Fame & Zoot Money; Ian McLagan’s autobiography All The Rage; Moorcock & Sumner’s podcast series (Michael Moorcock’s Multiverse) and Titan Comics’ beautiful ongoing Michael Moorcock Library archive edition graphic novels.
