||"One of the aims of Manchester's independent paperback imprint
Savoy is to give exposure to those neglected British writers who
influenced SF's New Wave movement, and here Savoy have acquired
the rights to a trinity of Fantasy classics. I read Treece at
school, and I suspect Michael Moorcock did too. He writes introductions
to each volume, and it is easy to draw parallels between Elric
and The Golden Strangers set in a 'grey twilight world of the Stone Age when the line between magic and reality was less easily drawnand more easily crossed than it is today', or to think of Moorcock's Melniboné while reading The Great Captains set after the collapse of a great empirein this instance Rome, or to compare Moorcock's The Bull and the Spear with Treece's Celtic mythology in The Dark Island. Indeed Treece now seems more powerful and relevant than when these
books were written, portraying poetry, violence, and the dark
undertow of mysticism."
