From the legendary author of the Elric saga, a Science Fiction Grand Master, a platinum album-receiving rock star, and the controversial editor of the new wave's New Worlds, this definitive collection captures the incomparable short fiction of one of science fiction and literature's most important contemporary writers.

These exceptional stories range effortlessly from the genre tales that continue to define fantasy to the author's critically acclaimed mainstream works. Classic offerings include the Nebula Award-winning novella "Behold the Man," which introduces a time traveler and unlikely messiah that H.G. Wells never imagined; "The Visible Men," a recent tale of the ambiguous and androgynous secret agent Jerry Cornelius; the trilogy "My Experiences in the Third WorldWar," where a Russian agent in an alternate Cambodia is powerless to prevent an inevitable march toward nuclear disaster; and "A Portrait in Ivory," a Melibone story of troubled anti-hero Elric and his soul-stealing sword, Stormbringer.

Newer work handpicked by the expert editing team includes one previously unpublished story and three uncollected stories. With his finest stories finally collected in one volume, this book is a long-overdue tribute to an extraordinarily gifted, versatile, and much-beloved author.
