A collection of Cornelius stories by Michael Moorcock. It has gone through four editions with differing contents and/or titles.

The third edition, The Lives and Times of Jerry Cornelius: Stories of the Comic Apocalypse, added a new Introduction and four later Cornelius stories but excised five of the original stories appearing in the first and second editions. The fourth edition, Jerry Cornelius: His Lives and His Times, restored the stories omitted from the 3rd edition, removed one of the new novellas[1] and added six additional stories. (For further information on these editions see the links at the end of this article.)
