About the Author:

London born Michael Moorcock is one of the most prominent, prolific and popular writers in the Western world. As the editor of New Worlds, Michael was a primary motivation behind the 1960's "New Wave" literary movement. His prodigious output includes rock songs, comics, screenplays, essays, and over seventy novels. Perhaps best know for his interlocking heroic fantasy series, Michael's recurring characters include Elric, Corum, Dorian Hawkmoon, Jerry Cornelius, the Eternal Champion and others. A multiple winner of the British Fantasy Award, Michael has won the Guardian Fiction Award (Condition Of Muzak), the World Fantasy Award (Gloriana), John W. Campbell Memorial Award (Gloriana), Nebula Award (Behold The Man) and was a finalist for the Whitbread Prize (Mother London). He currently lives with his wife Linda in Lost Pines, TX.

John Picacio is the co-founder of Maverick Studios. His stories and design have been published in Maverick Studios' Words & Pictures and Mojo Press' Weird Business. He lives and works in San Antonio, TX.

Review:

Behold The Man won the 1967 Nebula Award. Moorcock is an acknowledged master of fantasy with social and psychological bite, and this extremely controversial novella may well represent the best the fantasy field has to offer in terms of pure literary firepower. Karl Glogauer travels back in time two thousand years, meets John the Baptist, and then seeks Jesus Christ himself. To quote the jacket copy, "What he discovers shocks him to the core." This is a devastating story- science fiction at its most abstract and symbolic. And absolutely unforgettable. I'm ecstatic to have this beautiful corrected 30th Anniversary edition, with foreword by Jonathan Carroll and an afterword by the author, as well as lush illustrations by John Picacio. It's an essential element of any library of the fantastic- be grateful Mojo Press cared enough to make it available again. -- from William D. Gagliani's "Literature Fantastique" column from the December 1996 issue of Booklovers
