Review of 'The Rituals of Infinity'

The Rituals of Infinity by Michael Moorcock

Another short novel by a classic SF writer The Rituals of Infinity finds us in a universe where there are a series of “alternate earths” that Professor Faustaff and his team of engineers and like-minded individuals are striving to prevent from inevitable destruction. His efforts are hampered by the “Scavangers” – renegades from his own group that scavenge whatever they can from destructing societies – and “D-squads” – armed groups that attack Faustaff's team whenever they attempt to halt the destruction. In his adventures the Professor (I find it hard to believe with his physical activities that he is as overweight as indicated in the book) manages to figure out what is going on and what the future has in store in a not-to-bad though a bit unsatisfying conclusion. A real page-turner, this is an interesting story with some unusual characters.
