THE WAR AMONGST THE ANGELS by Michael Moorcock

THE WAR AMONGST THE ANGELS

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Moorcock's latest metamorphic, calculated, gnomic, self- referential venture into the ``multiverse'' completes the trilogy of Blood (1995) and Fabulous Harbors (1997). The chief character and narrator here is Rose von Bek, nÇe Moorcock (it's an ``autobiographical story,'' the author explains helpfully), who, born during the London Blitz, becomes a highwayman to defy the oppressive Universal Transport Company before discovering the doorway to the multiverse--and thence the impending war between the Singularity and the Chaos Engineers that threatens not only the First and Second Ethers but creation itself. Endlessly reinventive, purposefully bewildering, unquantifiable, and elusive--typically Moorcock, in fact. Your move.
