Review of 'The Shores of Death'

The Shores of Death by Michael Moorcock

Another rather interesting trip through the rather interesting eyes of Moorcock with the earth no longer rotating and inhabited by humans atrophying in their technology yet effectively sterilized by radiation. Their lives have been extended to hundreds of years yet, unable to procreate, Clovis Marca is seeking some sort of imortality for the human race while the other humans seem intent on self-destruction as they form various factions against one another. Marca goes in search of Orland Sharvis a “mad scientist” who is rumoured to have the secret of imortality, but is the price too high to pay? An interesting book of ideas and political ideology.
