The high comedy of Michael Moorcock's outlandish futuristic world is at its most entertaining in these stories of the hedonistic immortals who dwell at the End of Time.

Werther de Goethe, womb-child and apprehensive optimist, find innocence in the form of Catherine Gratitude. When Werther's paternal feelings tourn to lust, he rejoices in a remorse he has never known before.

The Duke of Queens, always game for something diverting, challenges Lord Shrk to a duel. To make the spoart all the more fun for the spectators, the duel will be to the death--even if death is something of a trick for immortals.

And, finally, there's the arrival of prudish time-traveler Dafnish Armatuce with her sixty-year-old son, Snuffles, in tow. Snuffles is all to delighted by what he sees at the End of Time, but the wanton abandon is a bit too much for his poor mother.

Michale Moorcock's sharp social satire is cause for celebration for that breed of readers who delight in wit, whimsey and brilliance of language.
