[From Alien Online] The next Elric book to be published, The White Wolf’s Son: The Albino in the Middle March, will be the last according to author Michael Moorcock. Note that Elric will continue to have adventures in the graphic novel format.

Moorcock states he’s ending the series “Because it’s very hard to keep producing fantasy novels which are faithful to readers’ expectations and are still original.” Assuming that the Elric stories are still selling, it’s good to know that an author is keeping the fans in his mind ahead of the paycheck. How many series do you know of that dragged on waaaay too long?

Or has Elric already passed the peak of quality? Has anyone read the Elric books? What were your impressions?
