Reviews

"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 drawn—and 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 empire—in 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."
