Michael Moorcock on Sauron

Lewis Jones in the Spectator reviews a selection of Michael Moorcock’s short non-fiction, Into the Media Web, and notes his loathing of Star Wars, CS Lewis and especially Tolkein:
in “Epic Pooh” he writes that he is unconvinced of Sauron’s evil since “anyone who hates hobbits can’t be all bad”.

I laughed - its so true, we could be so over hobbits.

I also recalled my favourite ever SF line, from Michael Moorcock: 'the skins of vinyls long since dead'.
