ReceptionEdit

Dave Langford reviewed Wizardry and Wild Romance: A Study of Epic Fantasy for White Dwarf #95, and stated that "Moorcock's chief touchstone is style, for which he has a fine ear: good verbal effects can win his seal of approval for books which overall I reckon aren't so wonderful, while Moorcock has no time for authors who write flatly, even if (like Tolkien) they can achieve a notable cumulative impact."[1]
