Michael John Moorcock (born December 18, 1939) is a prolific British writer primarily of science fiction and science fantasy who has also published a number of literary novels.

Moorcock's most popular works by far have been the Elric novels, starring the character Elric of Melniboné, an anti-hero written as a deliberate reversal of what Moorcock saw as cliches commonly found in fantasy adventure novels inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, and a direct antithesis of Robert E. Howard's Conan. He has also published a number of parodies of writers for whom he felt affection as a boy, such as Edgar Rice Burroughs, Leigh Brackett, and Howard himself. All his fantasy adventures have elements of satire and parody while respecting what he considers the essentials of the form. While these are perhaps his best known works in the U.S., he came to prominence in the UK as a literary author, with books like Behold the Man and The Final Programme being received as non-generic. Novels like the Cornelius Quartet, Mother London, King of the City, and the Pyat Quartet have established him in the eyes of critics in publications such as the Times Literary Supplement and The London Review of Books as a major contemporary literary novelist.
