THE LIVES AND TIMES OF JERRY CORNELIUS

Grafton paperback, 1987. Cover illustration by Tim White.

"WHO - NOT TO SAY WHEN, WHERE, HOW OR WHY - IS JERRY CORNELIUS? 
We'll probably never know. Still, the contents of this book do provide a kind of kaleidoscopic biography of the immortal, ubiquitous assassin who has himself been the target of assassination attempts for his own brother Frank - and of several novels by Michael Moorcock, of course. 
THE LIVES AND TIMES OF JERRY CORNELIUS 
shows the enigmatic superhero about his business in Mandalay, London, the vatican and elsewhere (and elsewhen): they are a sharp, brilliantly witty satire of our times - and of time itself."
