“Eat this,” said Dreamsinter. “Then we will chase the sound together.”

Attractive copy of Davd Lindsay’s remarkable interplanetary romance A Voyage to Arcturus, “a tale whose apocalyptic intensity – and whose refusal of any balm or loving-kindness as its protagonist scours an alien world in search of a savage Transcendence – marks it as a work written in the aftermath of World War One” (SFE).
