    Storm over Tanelorn?

    Has anyone ever seen this?

    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

    Goes with this perhaps?



    I think they're foreign-language editions (Dutch? German?) rather than some long-lost Moorcock texts. :)

    EDIT: They are Dutch. 'Storm over Tanelorn' features Theleb K'aarna, so might be 'The Sleeping Sorceress' or could be 'The Bane of the Black Sword'. Likewise, 'Storm over Melnibone' might be 'Elric of Melnibone' or could be 'The Weird of the White Wolf'.

    Since 'BotBS' includes 'The Stealer of Souls' and 'To Rescue Tanelorn...' I'm inclined to go with the latter options in both cases, but any Dutch readers are welcome to put me straight.

    _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
    _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
    _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

      From what I've been able to find, Storm Over Melnibonأ© is Elric of Melnibonأ©, and Storm Over Tanelorn is The Sleeping Sorceress.

        Update: Looks like I was wrong and I should have gone with the first options. :P

            Me too. The cover typography is almost identical to the Mayflower editions of the 70s. Is there any relation between the publishers...?

              Me too. Been enjoying the gallery of foreign covers. I'd sure love to get a hand on some of those for my collection.

                The first cover isn't showing on my PC now. Any reason?

                    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                              I've got both books on my shelf right here. In fact, Storm over Melnibonأ© was the first Moorcock book I read, a less than perfect translation to Dutch of Elric of Melnibonأ©. When Elric stabs Thing and it cries out its name it goes "Ding! Ding! Ding!" like some panicked doorbell.

                              Storm over Tanelorn is indeed translated from The Sleeping Sorceress. Few of Mike's books have been translated to Dutch, but those that were can be found here, along with their covers: http://www.deboekenplank.nl/naslag/a...moorcock_m.htm

                              The covers for the Dancers were done by Bob Haberfield, those for Jerry by Tais Teng, that of Gloriana by D. Groenendijk-Grimme and Behold the Man was done by J.W. Looman. The other books fail to credit the cover artists.
