Almost anyone who has read or written Science Fiction or fantasy has been inspired by the work of Michael Moorcock. His literary flair and grand sense of adventure have been evident since his controversial first novel Behold the Man, through the stories and novels featuring his most famous character, Elric of Melniboné, to his fantasy masterpiece, Gloriana, winner of both the Campbell Memorial and World Fantasy, awards for best novel. Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon all cite Moorcock as a major influence; as editor of New Worlds magazine, he helped launch the careers of many of his contemporaries, including Harlan Ellison, Philip K. Dick, and J. G. Ballard.
Tor Books now proudly presents Moorcock's first independent novel in nine years, a tale both fantastical and autobiographical, a celebration of London and what it meant to be young there in the years after World War II. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London.

“Moorcock changed the field single-handedly: he's a giant. He has kept me entertained, shocked, and fascinated for as long as I have been reading.” ―Tad Williams, New York Times bestselling author of the Otherland series
“The vast, tragic symbols by which Mr. Moorcock continually illuminates the metaphysical quest of his hero are a measure of the author's remarkable talents.” ―J.G. Ballard
“A giant of fantasy.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“A giant in the history of science fiction and fantasy--and mainstream literature.” ―The Guardian
“[His stories] are the spells that first drew me into Moorcock's luminous and captivating webs.” ―Alan Moore, New York Times bestselling author of Watchmen and V For Vendetta
