    • After three books of tall tales that often completely conflict with history, genius "inventions", rampant drug use, rape and more unnecessary and arbitrary insults directed at Jews than there are Jews in the world, what's left for a potentially insane and completely unlikeable protagonist to go? Why, by doubling down on all such things by involving the one group that pretty much everyone can agree was just no darn good: Nazis!Yes, it's that rascally fellow Colonel Pyat back again, telling us the [...]


    • Originally published on my blog here in April 2006.After twenty-five years, the final volume of the Pyat Quartet has now at last appeared; it has spent almost all that time listed at the front of Moorcock's publications as "in preparation". The quartet as a whole must rank as one of the most ambitious novel series of the period, as well as one of the most slowly written; not content with being a historical narrative of the first half of the twentieth century, Moorcock has immersed himself in the [...]


    • If you have made it through the first three volumes of Colonel Pyat's outrageous memoirs of outright lies, half-truths, evasions, cover-ups, rationalizations and even quibbles, then you know what you are going to get in this book where our anti-hero stumbles into his Fascist wonderlands in Italy, Germany and even Spain.Half the fun in this book is ferreting out what is the actual truth that might be leaking from the ferret's mouth unbeknownst to his ferret-self. Did he really have drawings and p [...]


    • This is the fourth of four novels and bear in mind that I have not read the others - but it stands alone as one of the most remarkable attempts to get inside the mind of the idealistic European fascist. It contains one of the most disgusting sex-scenes in contemporary literature and there are occasional moments of obscure linguistic invention but if you get past the first ten pages, I think you are in for a treat and will find it hard to put down.A basic knowledge of early twentieth century Euro [...]


    • Thank goodness after all these years I no longer have to live within the mind of Maximilian Pyat (if that is his true name). A magnificent end to this series: one of the author's best works. I love an unreliable narrator and Pyat (and Moorcock?) is one of the best. It is shameful that Moorcock has never won the Booker but that's what writing science fiction and hanging out with Hawkwind does for your literary street credentials.


    • The last book of the Quartet takes the hapless and intrepid adventurer Pyat from Africa to the darkest parts of early 20th century Europe- first to Mussolini's Italy and then to 1930's Germany. Armed with his chauvinist right-wing beliefs, the self-hating Jewish Anti-Semite Pyat offers his idealized and willfully blind portrayal of the Fascist societies. Some time after he gets to Germany, things getREALLYbizarre, dark and twisted for a bit, as Pyat recounts in excruciating detail (to the point [...]


    • So, at the end of the fourth volume of Moorcock's Millennium Quartet we get confirmation of something we've suspected since early in the first volume. But the way we find out brings home quite how dishonest, disloyal (to everyone except Mrs Cornelius) and self-obsessed Pyat really is. As usual, there are plenty of unbelievable (probably because they're untrue) coincidences to rescue our clay-footed golden boy from his absurd involvement in the major historical events of the mid nineteen-thirties [...]


    • Horrible as the other books…darkly funny too.A sad end to the whole saga (which I think was really about Mrs C).How much of the whole thing was true? How much the rambling reminiscences of a crazy old man mixing fact, fantasy, and wishful thinking?At times the saga was hard work and uncomfortable reading, but it was worth the journey.A bittersweet tale, all in all, filled with wild escapes, depravity, delusion, obsession, self-loathing, and unrequited love…all sprinkled over major events in [...]


    • Brilliant end to an amazing series. More coherent than the previous volumes with less of the rambling digressions and the better for it. Taken as a whole an extraordinary work of fiction which whirls us with great intensity through that strange period of history between the wars. Thought provoking and ultimately quite moving. The denial of history and what we really are is alive and well today.
