Nightspore on Tormance Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay cover image

NEW EDITION of the Epic ARCTURUS
David Lindsay

David Lindsay's first novel is widely regarded as a work of
genius. It was first published in 1920 and only gradually achieved
the recognition it deserves.

Using a mystical journey to a neighbouring star, Lindsay strips
the psyche - to reveal an astonishing world view.

It was retitled 'A Voyage to Arcturus' on the advice of the original
publishers and is best known by that name. Lindsay called it
'Nightspore on Tormance', but Nightspore is not evident on the
planet Tormance which orbits the double Arcturian star - all the
action seems to follow the 'giant' Maskull.

It had a profound effect on C.S. Lewis who said it was one of the
most blasphemous books ever written. 'Perelandra', also titled 'A
Voyage to Venus', from Lewis's Cosmic Trilogy was a Christian
'answer' to Arcturus. Its influence can also be found in 'The
Voyage of the Dawn-Treader'. Professor Lewis considered
Arcturus to be a work of genius.

The influence particularly of A Voyage to Arcturus but also of
others of Lindsay's works can be found in Craig Herbertson's
'
The Death Tableau'.

Lindsay intended to shake and disturb the reader into a
transcendent awareness and reading it has somewhat of the
character of an ordeal.

Returning the original title restores the unsettling effect that
Lindsay intended.
