Meet Karl Glogauer, time traveller and unlikely Messiah. When he finds himself in Palestine in the year 29AD he is shocked to meet the man known as Jesus Christ -- a drooling idiot, hiding in the shadows of the carpenter's shop in Nazareth. But if he is not capable of fulfilling his historical role, then who will take his place?

Nebula Award Winner


"Behold The Man won the 1967 Nebula Award. Moorcock is an acknowledged master of fantasy with social and psychological bite, and this extremely controversial novella may well represent the best the fantasy field has to offer in terms of pure literary firepower. Karl Glogauer travels back in time two thousand years, meets John the Baptist, and then seeks Jesus Christ himself. To quote the jacket copy, "What he discovers shocks him to the core." This is a devastating story- science fiction at its most abstract and symbolic. And absolutely unforgettable."-- from William D. Gagliani's "Literature Fantastique" column

'Here is a writer of rare talent who has stumbled on an idea so dangerous and brilliant that scarcely any living writer could do justice to it' Guardian
