** ItIsDehumanizing: A strange downplaying or aversion: Cornelius Brunner is referred to in the narration as "it". Given that it apparently has the personalities of both the people who were combined to create it, "they" might've been a better choice. But it was 1965 and neither Michael Moorcock nor anyone else really had a good precedent.

Just to keep readers' lives interesting, different editions of short story compilations like ''The Lives and Times of Jerry Cornelius'' and ''The Nature of the Catastrophe'' have different contents. You can see those (and more non-Moorcock Cornelius story compilations) at the Wikiverse (a Michael Moorcook wiki) [[http://www.multiverse.org/wiki/index.php?title=Cornelius_%28series%29 here.]]

* TangledFamilyTree: Oh, you have no ''[[http://www.multiverse.org/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Cornelius_Family idea]]''. Jerry is told about it by his mother in ''The Condition Of Muzak'' ("Incest on top a bloody incest, eh?"). It's quite likely that Jerry is in some way related to most of the series' other important characters.
