A Voyage to Arcturusby David Lindsay
After attending a seance, Maskull, a restless and rootless man, finds himself embarking on a journey to the planet Tormance, which orbits Arcturus. Alone, he wanders the startling landscape, open to a bewildering range of experiences from love to ritual murder, encountering new monsters at every turn, metamorphosing, constantly seeking the truth about the divinity known as Shaping, Surtur and Crystalman.
A Voyage to Arcturus is David Lindsay's masterpiece, an extraordinary imaginative tour de force.
