He is and author and was an editor of a sci-fi rag.
In my opinion his most enduring work will be (is) his swords and sorcery books about the "eternal champion". My favorite is Elric, but there are others. After reading a few, they start blending together...The two I remember best are Elric and Corum (Swords trilogy).
Also the time travel sci-fi story Behold the Man won some award or another.
So too did his work "Dancers at the End of Time" - I still remember them being so decadent - about just what the title of the series (trilogy and some short stories if I recall) implies - the far future where humans still exist, but the end of the Universe is nigh. I liked this too.

He's had a huge influence over the course of a long career. His "Eternal Champion" cycle is great; pick up one of the numerous omnibus collections if you can.
