A Nomad of the Time Streams

From Michael Moorcock's Wikiverse
Jump to navigationJump to search

A Nomad of the Time Streams is a revised edition of the earlier The Nomad of Time omnibus. It was first published as volume six in The Tale of the Eternal Champion omnibus series published in the United Kingdom by Orion Books/Millennium, then, with further minor revisions, as volume four in the The Eternal Champion omnibus series in the United States by White Wolf.

The version of The Steel Tsar included in A Nomad of the Time Streams was heavily revised due to Michael Moorcock's dissatisfaction with the original 1981 text.

For reasons that remain obscure some seven pages of text in The Steel Tsar, Book One, Chapter 3 are missing from the omnibuse as the text was derived from the British single volume publication of "The Steel Tsar" which also omitted those pages. The pages were finally restored by series editor John Davey for Gollancz's 2014 edition of The Nomad of Time.

The White Wolf omnibuses include pages of Oswald Bastable's diaries, illustrated by Chris Moeller.

Mike Says

"I actually used the rewritten Nomad of the Time Streams as a kind of pivot for the series when I was revising them all for the omnibus set. So I added material, specifically to the final (and I thought weakest) volume, which needed rewriting anyway, so as to give some extra substance both to the sequence and to the series as a whole. In the omnibus version you'll find some additional ideas about the multiverse which I thought worth mentioning somewhere and that was for me the ideal place to put them."[1]
