SM, you're right, I was wrong. I'm also old.
Neither Lovecraft nor Moorcock are on my favourites list, and I tend to lump them both together. Also Zelazny for some reason, but I like him and I've read most of his work. Strange association because they're not really alike.
The Multiverse gives me a really polite brush-off:

(Later) - I was using Opera. I tried with Chrome and had no trouble. Thanks for that link.
I'll check out "Mother London." Interesting range of prices on Amazon:
48 Used from $0.24
2 New from $249.89
I think I'll get a used one.
(Later still) I can't check it because most of my library is still packed away waiting for house repairs after our (Christchurch New Zealand 2010 and 2011) earthquakes, but I have a feeling Zelazny either collaborated with or satirized Lovecraft. I know he (Zelazny) wrote something with Alfred Bester, another favourite of mine. "The Demolished Man" is right up there with the best.
(rambles more) I read "The Demolished Man" when I was about 10 years old. It was released as a 3? 4? part serial in Galaxy? SF Magazine. Monthly. A month is a huge amount of time to a 10 year old, but at least it gave me the time to save the one shilling and sixpence for the magazine.
Wish I still had them all.
(more ramble) I think I'm mixing authors again. I remember the phrase "I foul the blood of Great Russell" which I think is from Zelazny, maybe "The Doors of His Face, The Lamps of His Mouth" but I've just spent a couple of minutes googling and found nothing.
They say the memory is the second thing to go. I forget the first thing.
