    Hard to not be impressed with someone that wrote some Hawkwind lyrics The only Moorcock I ever read though Recall thinking it was pretty good all those years ago Never read any, just moved on I suppose.

    A five star three star book, if you know what I mean In the classic tradition of the fun, competently written 70,000 word SFF novel Moorcock probably wrote this in a week or less, and it s still tons of fun to read.

    Just as good as I remembered it Simple and effective.

    5 star story, 1 star ending This is a book that could have beendeeply developed, both from a character standpoint and a plot standpoint Loved the futuristic world that was created in the midst of a new ice age, where humans still cling to life in communities on the ice sheets With a dim knowledge of the past height of humanity, they adapt and use old technology to their ways, often with an incomplete understanding of how it works Moorcock really brings this new land and its traditions 5 star story, 1 star ending This is a book that could have beendeeply developed, both from a character standpoint and a plot standpoint Loved the futuristic world that was created in the midst of a new ice age, where humans still cling to life in communities on the ice sheets With a dim knowledge of the past height of humanity...

    Originally published on my blog here in December 2001.Although made part of the general repackaging of Moorcock s fantasy output around the Eternal Champion theme, The Ice Schooner is not really that closely linked to the other novels Having a hero and a quest is not really enough there are few novels in the genre by any author which would share these common elements.The much revised novel is set in a future Ice Age, so severe that oceans of ice cover almost the entire surface of the Earth On Originally published on my blog here in December 2001.Although made part of the general repackaging of Moorcock s fantasy output around the Eternal Champion theme, The Ice Schooner is not really that closely linked to the other novels Having a hero and a quest is not really enough there are few novels in the genre by any author which would share these common elements.The much revised novel is set in a future Ice Age, so severe that oceans of ice cover almost the entire surface of the Earth On these frozen wastes sail great ship like wind powered sledges, hunting the land whales evolved f...

    A bit tough to rate this book Moorcock is one of those writers who can write a book in three days He can grab a basic concept and sprint with it to the end I suspect this is one of those books I like it mostly because of the atmosphere he invokes of living in a world of perpetual ice and cold The plot is thin follow the map to the weird city, fall in love with the bad guy s wife , the ending is a throwaway, and the protagonist can t really be identified as an Eternal Champion Again, it w A bit tough to rate this book Moorcock is one of those writers who can write a book in three days He can grab a basic concept and sprint with it to the end I suspect this is one of those books I like it mostly because of the atmosphere...

    This tale of a world in the middle of an ice age was engaging, different, and classic Moorcock The peoples of the glacier had known nothing but ice and winter for so long that their religions and creation myths were based around it They trade with other cities and hunt land whales on great ships fitted with skates.Our hero is a ship s captain who recently divorced himself from his city and sets out on a suicide mission on foot across th...
