Art Direction: Look Moorcock’s covers are always strange. It’s like previous publishers took a handful of amphetamines before putting them to market. All we need is a big 80’s girls head floating in lots of clouds and some people on horses riding into war. No one will suspect any type of solvent abuse… well… until they read the thing!
Published 1987

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 5.32 out of 10)

    You know when you’ve been Entropy Tangoed.

    I see they spelled MOORCOCK with an infinity symbol.

    Sometimes an airship is just a cigar.

    There should be a tag for ‘floating head’. Admin?

    The Entropy Tango is a somewhat unknown dance unlike the Alien Tango, and the last is more popular by 0.35 stars. But The Entropy Tango is a much more complex number that can display experience and perfected execution.

    Reportedly, said dance was very popular at The End Of Time, although depending on who was dancing it at the time, the results were variable…
    For example, Jerek Carnelian, & Lady Christina, The Eternal Concubine were very good dancers, while Mongrove by contrast, danced said tango like he had 2 left feet (though in many instances, this was indeed literal, as he frequently attached 2 left feet to the ends of his legs…).
    The most noted dancer was Lord Shark, or rather his army of automata were, as many times, he entertained (although somewhat reluctantly, one might say), guests at his infrequent parties, with a display of synchronised tangoing involving several hundred duelling automata…
