This needs to be expanded to cover the various reorderings and series etc. There was the ad hoc series up to 1977, then the DAW/Grafton reordering of 1977, the Orion/White Wolf omnibuses and now the Del Rey series. Elwher 02:35, 29 August 2007 (PDT)

  • Will there be eventually a "complete" list of the Elric series as it stands today? I have seen somewhere else an order that the books "should" be read in.
    • Only when Mike stops writing the stories. A Portrait in Ivory is the latest short story (thus far uncollected) and the next (to appear in 'Weird Tales' magazine) is Black Petals. Quite where these fit into the existing order I don't know. An order as the series currently stands though should be added at some point. We also need to add in graphic works such as Elric: The Making of a Sorcerer, which precedes all the novels. Demos99

I've begun a re-write of the entire page which eventually will cover both the individual stories/novels that make up the Saga and the books that collect it in various formats. I hope it will be obvious what I'm trying to achieve with this division, but feel free to question, query and/or challenge my changes. Demos99 05:36, 6 September 2007 (PDT)

  • Very nice - you have a better style than I have - just spotted one typo which I will correct.Elwher 03:05, 7 September 2007 (PDT)

We need to add the new Gollancz editions now...perhaps it is worth waiting until more of the omnibuses are published. Elwher

The Sleeping Sorceress

Isn't this a 'fix-up novel' as well of sorts? It consists of the eponymous novella, an original(?) novella involving King Urish's treasure and then a reworking(?) of part of The King of the Swords. Demos99 07:13, 30 August 2007 (PDT)

  • Perhaps...we need a definition of the fix-up novel - I'll have to look at the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction I think - this would also sort The Entropy Tango as well. Mike's work covers the entire spectrum from collection to novel! Elwher 03:13, 31 August 2007 (PDT)

Article Title

"Elric of Melniboné (series)" or "The Elric Saga"? Which should it be? With all the various disambigs for EoM I favour moving this article to "The Elric Saga". Thoughts? Demos99 07:15, 30 August 2007 (PDT)

  • I could get into that. --Exodio 07:36, 30 August 2007 (PDT)
    • I agree Elwher 03:14, 31 August 2007 (PDT)
      • Title changed (page moved) as per consensus. Demos99 02:32, 6 September 2007 (PDT)
        • Democracy is great when it's only 3 people. :D --Exodio 11:39, 6 September 2007 (PDT)
