John Picacio has just posted the cover art for the upcoming book Elric: The Stealer of Souls by Michael Moorcock. Here’s the large version.

Man, this looks sweet. I think Picacio has the cover art for the sequel to his awesome book, Cover Story.

I haven’t read the Elric books, but I’ve always wanted to. I’ve been picking up the White Wolf trade paperback editions when I see them at the used bookstore. They look good on a shelf, at least.

What’s your take on the Elric series? Is it a worthwhile read?

Do you have a recommended reading order, either by publishing date or by the story chronology? Or is there a better introductory point?

I’m a casual fantasy fan at best…is this series only for true hardcore fantasy fans?
