    I have always detested Michael Moorcock.As a fantasy reader whose passion for Tolkien s writing knows no boundaries, I have always had a hard time swallowing the venomous spite and blind arrogance with which he s been denouncing the champion of my fantasy dreams Generally speaking, I never felt anything against authors who attempted to step out of Tolkien s shadow These separatists, as I enjoy calling them, count shining stars like Mervyn Peake and China Mieville among their ranks, both men I I have always detested Michael Moorcock.As a fantasy reader whose passion for Tolkien s writing knows no boundaries, I have always had a hard time swallowing the venomous spite and blind arrogance with which he s been denouncing the champion of my fantasy dreams Generally speaking, I never felt anything against authors who attempted to step out of Tolkien s shadow These separatists, a...
