It’s not obvious from the book cover – Jerry Cornelius: His lives and His Times is a short story collection from Michael Moorcock (Gollancz £9.99). In fact you have to reach page xix to access the contents.

“Jerry Cornelius is an English assassin, physicist, rock star, and messiah to the Age of Science. Mainstay of the infamous and influential magazine New Worlds and star of some of Moorcock’s celebrated novels, here are the short stories which made his name.

Set in a shifting, fluid version of the counter-culture 1960s, the adventures of Jerry Cornelius were among the most prominent ‘New Wave’ SF books. Jerry Cornelius is one of the most remarkable and distinctive characters in Moorcock’s work, and his time-travelling, trippy and bizarre adventures are must-reads.”

Contains “The Nature of the Catastrophe”, “The Entropy Circuit”, “The Delhi Division” and many more.
