Unabridged narration by Chet Williamson
Run time 8 hours

The South...but not as we know it...

On the threshold of infinity, a world awaits the inevitable moment of annihilation - fearing the terrible wild colors that bleed through the shredded fabric of reality.

The river flows across the dimensions - lawless, unstable waterways that seep into chaos and violent uncertainty. Here, on riverboats and in doomed cafes teetering on oblivion's edge, jugador gamblers work their mystical trade - while others, less adept, seek purpose in a space opera mythology that determines all things. And the river flows, carrying the best of the best, jugador supreme Jack Karaquazian, ever closer to the beautiful Colinda Dovero - the walking vision to whom he once promised his eternal heart...then lost through pride and blind folly.

And the river flows, uniting Sam Oakenhurst, disciple of machinoix pain, with his mysterious beloved, the Rose. For somewhere different upriver, they each have a role to play in a continuing cosmic drama-and must risk the future on the famous luck of Jack Karaquazian in the apocalyptic Game of Time.

BLOOD: Michael Moorcock's astonishing journey though volatile matter and corrupted time - a phantasmagoric excursion to the death of the old multiverse...and the birth of the new.

PRAISE FOR BLOOD: A Southern Fantasy:
"...Moorcock (Lunching with the Antichrist) offers a vision of an alternate South so convincing, however, it may leave readers questioning how well they know their history. Those who appreciated the philosophical dimension Moorcock brought to sword-and-sorcery fiction with his Elric saga will find similar pleasures here." --Publisher's Weekly

Michael Moorcock has published more than 70 novels in a variety of genres, including the classic Cornelius Chronicles, The Dancers at the End of Time trilogy and the popular Elric Saga. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the World Fantasy, Nebula, and John W. Campbell Memorial awards, and the Guardian Fiction Prize, and has been short listed for both the Booker and the Whitbread Prize, Great Britain's most prestigious literary awards. Michael has been awarded the title of Grandmaster by the SFWA and is the winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Horror Writer's Association.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
