THE LAND LEVIATHAN

Granada / Panther paperback, 1984. Cover illustration by
Melvyn Grant.

"A BARBARIC NEW DARK AGE- 
IN AN ALTERNATIVE TWENTIETH CENTURY 
Seeking the answer to the mystery of life, Captain Oswald Bastable visits the Temple of the Future Buddha and is thrown through time to a new twentieth century. Plague, anarchy and superstition rule the world where he finds himself. Bands of diseased mutants pillage the continents while pirate U-boats prowl the oceans. 
But from this chaos emerges the Black Attila, commander of the African Hordes and master of the most terrible weapon ever devised by Man - the Land Leviathan, a terrifying ziggurat on wheels, a moving mountain of deadly artillery. 
At last, after centuries of cruel oppression, the Land Leviathan helps the Black Attila establish Black Power on an unimaginable, global scale. Unimaginable that is, to anyone except Michael Moorcock who has rewritten the history of the twentieth century in his own totally original, biting style."
