A Cure for Cancer
A Cure for Cancer: The Cornelius Quartet 2 | Michael Moorcock
4 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
A mirror-image of his former self, Jerry Cornelius returns to a parallel London, armed with a vibragun and his infamous charisma and charm to boot. On the trail of the grotesque Bishop Beesley, Jerry hunts for a mysterious device capable of manipulating the cosmos. Corruption, violence and greed are rife in a war-torn Europe, but Jerry is against history; he is outside of history. He lusts for the equilibrium of anarchy, for randomness supreme--lock up your daughters (and sons), Jerry Cornelius is back. Dunked into the ether of Chaos, the second book in the Cornelius Quartet, A Cure for Cancer, was one of the first novels of its form, using hypermedia to spin a web of hauntingly surreal scenes, wickedly funny social satire and sci-fi vignettes that resonate deeply for the modern reader.

First book finished in the new year: another psychedelic whirlwind of a Jerry Cornelius adventure. Two more main books to go in this tetralogy, and then several other compiled stories. I'll be working through more of them later this year.

@TobeyTheScavengerMonk I first heard of Michael Moorcock through this postcard

TobeyTheScavengerMonk This is one of the Jerry Cornelius books that I haven't read! My experience with Moorcock is limited to his Elric epic fantasies, but I'm aiming to change that! I first learned about him from the Gaiman story One Life, Furnished in Early Moorcock. 4y
vivastory @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I have the Cornelius quartet in a single collection. I haven't read any of them yet. As soon as I saw the postcard i wanted to know more. It was in the set 4y
