    Moorcockian Satyre on Imperialism and Racism

    Captain Owen Bastable, from an all too familiar early 1900 background of 'enlightened'western colonization and 'white man's burden', cavorts around in a multiversal escapade experiencing many alternate 20th centuries...in a trilogy which is both an enjoyable read and manages to touch 'serious' issues too. Cast into another universe -after his earlier adventures among the Air Warlords- by a visit at the temple of the Future Buddha he finds himself in a devastated, annihilated landscape ravaged by decades of wars sprung up from the age old plagues of nationalism and avarice. But even as the epidemics that resulted from viral warfare begin finally to die out a new menace raises its head. The Black Attila...an african warlord bent on exacting revenge on Europe and the white race for their depredation and slavery of his motherland and its peoples, marches onward at the head of a fanatical army in command of the most deadly weapon ever seen...the Land Leviathan, an impossibily huge movable fortress...a veritable Ziqqurat of Doom, bristling with artillery. Of course, keeping with his namesake, Attila plans to avenge himself and his continent with genocide for genocide, devastation for devastation. Will Bastable manage to stop him? Or will he just witness the world's agony from barbarism after barbarism, in an inescapable spiral of death and destruction? Original and biting, the concept behind the book is the old adage that 'two wrongs never can make a right'...but the setting, the carachters, and Moorcock's innegable narrative talents conspire to show us, once more, that a book can be 'fun' and manage not to dull the reader's minds...as it all too often happens with to-day's genre literature.
