It's Michael Moorcock's birthday today. Mike is, of course, the creator of Elric of Melnibone and many other fantasy heroes. One of the few of the second wave of sword & sorcery writers still writing today and still a hard act to follow. His albino swordsman Elric is still appearing in new comics and short stories. The most recent story, Black Petals, showed up in Weird Tales magazine earlier this year. So happy Birthday. Mike. You're a class act and a nice guy.
