Mike Says

  • "I wasn't ashamed of the books...but at that moment [when Moorcock was editing New Worlds magazine and trying to break down genre conventions in imaginative fiction] it didn't seem a particularly good idea to have my name attached to what were escapist books to be read primarily by teenagers, so I gave the publisher a choice of titles and combinations of names and eventually there appeared, under the unlikely name of Edward Powys Bradbury, the books originally published as Warriors of Mars, Blades of Mars and Barbarian of Mars."[1]
