Wizardry and Wild Romance is a fantastic guide for anyone who loves fantasy and wants to find the best, most classic works of the genre. I think this book serves as an excellent adjunct to Lin Carter's Imaginary Worlds(qv), as Moorcock spends considerable time on works published after Imaginary Worlds was written. I was suprised at how different Moorcock's aesthetic is from my own, almost exactly the opposite, because I have really liked Michael Moorcock's own fantasy writing. 5 people found this helpful.
