An Often Overlooked Classic of Weird Fiction,
This review is from: A Voyage to Arcturus (Hardcover)
Voyage To Arcturus fits perfectly in with Savoy's present publishing programme which is set to climax with W. H. Hodgson's The House On The Borderland. Lindsay's classic is an unconventional fantasy that uses 'psychedlic' visions to convey his philosophies of life and the world around us. It begins with a fairly conventional seance and reads in a somewhat stlited style but then becomes almost ecstatic like Hodgson's end of world viosion in House on the Borderland. Characters constantly change physically in the seemingly plotless trip that is Voyage to Arcturus. Buy this book, not only is it a beautifully presented hardback with fantastic artwork, an intro by Alan Moore, an afterword by Colin Wilson and other 'extras', but you'll really never read another book like it!!
