Michael Moorcock ☆ 3 summary

review The Warlord of the Air 103 Michael Moorcock ☆ 3 summary Adãos do Império apoiam a nova ordem mundial de paz e prosperidade Ameaçado por uma conspiração internacional anaruista o capitão Bastable será forçado a uestionar os seus ideais para poder defender a Pax BrittanicaMas viajar para um futuro estranho e desconhecido não é a sua única surpresa Bas. This first Oswald Bastable novel was steampunk before there was a name for such a thing before there was anything punk come to dwell on it It s an alternate history political novel very much in the tradition of Wells told with the found manuscript framing made so popular by Burroughs Set in a 1973 world in which World War II never happened it shares some common themes and characters with other multiverse tapestry pieces but isn t an integral part It s slowly paced than his sword adventure books but less serious Reagan and Jagger have walk ons than much of his later consciously literary work It s good stuff

I have read Warlord of the Air by Michael Moorcock once before many years ago I saw it in a used book store on one of my visits a few years back and decided it would be worth trying again So there you go a bit of back history before my reviewThe book was originally published in 1971 It purport to be a story written by Michael Moorcock s grandfather from events he recorded back in 1903 It s a neat tale told to Moorcock Senior by Oswald Bastable a Victorian Captain who is thrust into the future Sound confusing Well it is only somewhat but the story is rich and interestingMoorcock Senior has moved to Rowe Island a small island near Indonesia to recover from a nervous disability While there he encounters Bastable who has disembarked from a tramp steamer his clothes worn and shredded and also appearing to suffer from a heroin addiction Moorcock takes him under his wing feeds and bathes him and tries to stop him from using heroin While with Moorcock Bastable tells his fascinating taleWhile in the British army in India Bastable takes a troop of Sepoys and Gurkhas to a remote Himalayan country Teku Benga to stop the warlord magician from continuing to threaten border outposts Bastable and a few of his men go to the capital city and are drugged An earthuake strikes and while trying to escape Bastable is lost in the passage ways of the palace He has been warned that there are doorways to unknown places below the palaceWaking up Bastable finds himself in rubble of the destroyed city and is unable to get off the mountain due to the destruction He is very surprised to find himself rescued by an airship of the Royal Indian Air Force Thus begins Bastable s adventure It turns out that he has moved from 1902 to 1973 in a different modern world The world is at peace airships are the norm the world is divided into major empires the British the American the Russian the Japanese etc Bastable finds himself in this new seemingly peaceful world After exams he trains for a job on one of the commercial airships as an Security Air Policeman And from this point the adventure builds and moves into a time of less peaceIt s a fascinating fantasy adventure Reading this again in 2019 trying to picture both the Victorian era from which Bastable starts to the 1970 s which is different from that we ve experienced and comparing with some of the actual events that occurred in our world s history makes for a surprisingly rich layer of textures It s a simple story in many ways but also uite complex Meeting some historical characters and events that take place in Bastable s future add to the story I m glad I read it again I think I appreciate it 4 stars De Lempicka Taschen Basic Art read Warlord of the Air by Michael Moorcock once before many years ago I saw

summary ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Michael Moorcock

review The Warlord of the Air 103 Michael Moorcock ☆ 3 summary Esta é a vida fabulosa e inacreditável do capitão Oswald Bastable Militar inglês do início do século XX Bastable vê se atirado para um futuro em ue os dirigíveis das Grandes Potências dominam um mundo pacificado pelo Império Britânico e governado pelo rei Eduardo VIIINo entanto nem todos os cid. This book is certainly well written and interesting It starts rather slow with Moorcock explaining how he found a manuscript left by his grandfather with the grandfather explaining how he met the main protagonist who dictated said manuscript and then the main protagonist Oswald Bastable describing how he managed to get from a punitive expedition in the 1902 Himalaya to the 1973 British Empire build on giant airships But the speed of the action increases and Bastable goes through what appears to be a fairly conventional adventure stories with air pirates rowdy Americans and everything But underlying this is a strong critiue of imperialism and colonialism subverting not just Bastables morals as an upstanding British officer but also some of the readers preconceptions about politics and adventure literatureOn the downside While easy enough to read and after a slow start well paced the books writing does show its 1971 vintage If I remember correctly there are only two women in the book and for one we primarily hear about her ankles The other is a physicist and anarchist and IIRC takes a bigger role in other instances of Moorcocks multiverse but remains rather anaemic hereRecommended as a good yarn with some unexpected depth and a very early example of steampunk
