Final Programme: The Cornelius Quartet 1
Final Programme: The Cornelius Quartet 1 | Michael Moorcock
2 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
Jerry Cornelius is a scientist, a rock star, and an assassin. He is the hippest adventurer of them all: tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings, murder, sex and drugs are a daily occurrence. Along with his savvy and ruthless partner-in-chaos, Miss Brunner, Cornelius is on a mission to control a revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being, a modern messiah the final programme. The first book in the Cornelius Quartet is the groundbreaking introduction to the misadventures and vendettas of Jerry Cornelius, one of modern literature s most distinctive characters, the product of a bewildering post-modern culture, and an inspiration for generations of characters since."

Wow. This is a book that feels like I should be reading it while taking a hit of acid. It's fast paced and a pretty wild ride. I also noted a couple references and scenes that tie this into the multiverse of the Elric Saga I read prior to this. Very different books and stories, but there are subtle connections if you're paying attention.
