Michael Moorcock would have you believe that the Eternal Champion is the pawn of Chaos, or Law, or the Balance, or some other supernatural force. Well, it turns out that this so-called supernatural force is actually the whims of the author himself.

In Count Brass, there are collected the latter three Hawkmoon books: Count Brass, The Champion of Garathorm, and The Quest for Tanelorn. Moorcock forces poor Dorian Hawkmoon to face all manner of trials, including the loss of his wife, the loss, once again, of his dear friends, the loss of his children, and even the loss of his identity.

While the end of each novel takes away a huge chunk of hope, Moorcock also leaves the reader with a glimpse of hope. And eventually, he leaves the Champion with more control of his own destiny than he’s ever before had.

This volume marks an excellent bookend to the chronicles of the Eternal Champion, and while it seems an end, we all know that if there is a wildly successful story or intriguing cast of characters, the story is never truly over. ( )

The Champion of Garathorm: http://www.librarything.com/review/26456558
The Quest for Tanelorn: http://www.librarything.com/review/26456581

So I grabbed the three books contained in this volume as I headed out for a two week vacation on the other side of the pond. I had recently finished up the first four Hawkmoon books and thought that I'd just go ahead with the Hawkmoon cycle. It wasn't until the end of [The Quest for Tanelorn] that I realized that this wasn't just the end of the Hawkmoon cycle, but the end of the entire Eternal Champion cycle. I probably should have read them in order, but I just didn't know what kind of problems I'd be causing by jumping out of sequence.

Oh well - I guess I need to go backfill my Eternal Champion reading now. ( )

After Hawkmoon and company's defeat of the Dark Empire, Hawkmoon comes to realise at the start of this book that everything is changed. The multiverse is twisted, Count Brass is alive and his wife, Yisselda is not. His friends are a little worried about his state, but are willing to give him some time.

He knows something is not right, and sets out to find out what is going on.

Epigraph
Then the earth grew old, its landscapes mellowing and showing signs of age, its ways becoming whimsical and strange in the manner of man in his last years...
                                                                                                                                                                                                 - The History of the Runestaff
And when this history was done there followed it another. A romance involving the same participants in experiences perhaps even more bizarre and awesome than the last. And again the ancient Castle of Brass in marshy Kamarg was the centre for much of this action...
                                                                           - The Chronicles of Castle Brass
Dedication
To all those Nomads, especially Ian, Dave, John and Maureen, and, of course, Shane, Paul, Ed and Moe - for all their good friendship, support and enthusiasm over the years.
First words
It had taken all these five years to restore the land of Kamarg, to repopulate its marshes with the giant scarlet flamingoes, the wild white bulls and the horned great horses which had once teemed here before the coming of the Dark Empire's bestial armies.
