An Alien Heat

Author: Michael Moorcock

Genre: Science Fiction

Year: 1972

Rating: 10 of 10

A wonderfully brilliant and hilarious books! This one had me laughing out loud at times. It’s the first book of the Dancers at the End of Time trilogy and I can’t wait to read the others. Satirical and sardonic, sassy and sarcastic – the book pokes endless fun at the bourgeoisie. It is tempting to include this in the canon of decadent literature instead of science fiction as it brings to mind Huysman’s “Against Nature” although much lighter and without the dark side or tedious passages. Time travel, aliens, the end of the universe, this book has it all. Highly recommended!
