I always thought Moorcock was sci-fi horror, so I never bothered to read him. Have I been missing out?

I'll say. The vast majority of his works are fantasy, sword and sorcery genre and have a few years on them. Others are more of an alternate history, particularely if more recent (i.e., Nazi Europe etc).

In the mid-late 90's, most of his works were republished in books containing 4-6 of his original short books. Hawkmoon was one of the best but since they are all linked with the concept of the Eternal Champion (and his main characters being aspects of that Eternal Champion), I don't think you can loss no matter where you start.

If you like John Carter of Mars, you'll probably like the Kane of Old Mars series. The Elric series is the longest and that hero is more of an anti-hero. Corum is a decidedly Otherworldly hero with those works based in Irish folklore (so it was one of my favorites.)

Enjoy!
