Count Brass - Michael Moorcock
I've read quite a few books in the Michael Moorcock Eternal Champion series. This one is definitely middle of the road. The first book, Count Brass, was not good. The ending saved it. The second story, Champion of Garathorm, was better than the first and probably average for a Moorcock story at the time it was written. I liked seeing a female version of the Eternal Champion for once. The third story, Quest for Tanelorn, was on the complete opposite end of the Moorcock spectrum than the first. Sailor on the Sea of Fate from Hawkmoon's point of view. Great stuff and the aftermatch provided an ending to the Eternal Champion cycle.
