    The Multiverse and Chaosphere from Michael Moorcock

    in Radio

    On Thursday March 5th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
    have a discussion on the magical heroic fantasy fiction of British
    literary lion Michael Moorcock. Moorcock. Although Moorcock did not coin
    the term Multiverse he did much to popularize it in his Elric of
    Melnibone series. H.G. Wells used it in Men like Gods, and Richard
    Shaver's Red Dwarf called it the "Simultane." Parallel Worlds is perhaps
    the best description of it. What Moorcock did coin was the "Chaosphere"
    that mace-like symbol of the black ball with eight spearheads emerging
    that was adopted by Peter Carroll as the symbol for their Chaos Magick
    system. Moorcock's literary concept of the Chaos world is presented as
    an ocean of swirling colors and energies dashing against the cliffs of
    his fantasy world -- and periodically invading and claiming lands ruled
    by the Lords of Law. The Lords of Chaos, one of which is Elric's patron,
    play a constant game with men as the pawns. Moorcock was perhaps
    influanced by Vance's Cudgel, to create his anti-hero The Albino
    ex-emperor Elric of Melnibone, who struggles to overcome the sociopathic
    heritage of his race and finally secumbs to it under the influence of
    his black-magick sword which is a vampiric weapon with a evil mind of
    its own. This was a perfect fictional character for the darkness that
    followed the era of the flower children, a presage of the current goth
    and black metal fads. Moorcock describes himself as an anarchist and is
    a controversial literary figure in Britain. He is presently writing a
    Dr. Who novel, his first using someone else's character. So if you want
    to discover the magick of Michael Moorcock tune in and we'll navigate
    the multiverse.
