Wendy Pini's Elric

Thanks to Joe at the Forbidden Planet blog for pointing out that Richard Pini has posted what appears to be an updated version of Wendy Pini's Law & Chaos, the book documenting her never-made animated version of Michael Moorcock's Stormbringer.

I was a huge fan of Wendy and Richard Pini's Elfquest in middle school and high school, and around the same time became an ardent follower of Moorcock's Eternal Champion novels. So I'm not sure why I never bought a copy of Wendy's Law & Chaos when I would see it for sale in the various Dallas Fantasy Fairs over the years. All I can think is that it was already priced as a collectible by then, and too rich for my callow blood.

The text posted to Wendy's site appears to be an updated version of the original, with references to the additional decades that have past since the book was published. It's a fascinating read, either way, an a glimpse into an early effort by a talent that was just beginning to find her voice. It would not be too much after this abortive attempt at a Stormbringer animation that Wendy and Richard would introduce Elfquest to the world.

If you're a fan of Moorcock's work, or the Pinis, or just interested in a glimpse at what might have been, the site is well worth checking out.
