Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0575092734, Paperback)The universe is Michael Moorcock's playground in this picaresque "autobiography" of his putative relation Rose von Bek. Rose, born in London in the mid-20th century to Sir Arthur and Lady Eleanor Moorcock, learns her love of wandering from the gypsies who gather near her father's estate. At 7 she decides on a career as a highwayman, at 17 she marries the not-entirely-respectable Count von Bek, and soon thereafter she meets her lover and companion-in-arms Sam Oakenhurst. Rose quickly discovers that she can enter the Second Ether and travel at will between the conventional world and a rollicking, quasi-infinite multiverse where the Chaos Engineers hold sway. At the same time, Sam's friend Jack Karaquazian and the beautiful Colinda Dovero conduct a romantic tragedy on a cosmic scale. It's Scaramouche meets Douglas Adams as Rose and her friends fight the War in Heaven against the Dark Angel Lucifer.
