A voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay( )

110 editions published between 1920 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 2,939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a strange interstellar journey, Maskull, a man from Earth, awakens alone in a desert on the planet Tormance, seared by the suns of the binary star Arcturus. As he journeys northward, guided by a drumbeat, he encounters a world and its inhabitants like no other, where gender is a victory won at dear cost; where landscape and emotion are drawn into an accursed dance; where heroes are killed, reborn, and renamed; and where the cosmological lures of Shaping, who may be God, torment Maskull in his astonishing pilgrimage. At the end of his arduous and increasingly mystical quest waits a dark secret and an unforgettable revelation."--Jacket

The Haunted Woman is a dark, metaphysical fantasy novel by David Lindsay. It was first published in 1922. In The Haunted Woman, the two main characters discover a room which seems to exist only some of the time; while they are there together, they can see more clearly and express themselves honestly. The work supposedly marked Lindsay's attempt to write a more "commercial" novel after the initial failure of his first work, the classic A Voyage to Arcturus (1920), though he began it before that work was published. Its importance in the history of fantasy literature was recognized by its republication by the Newcastle Publishing Company as the fourth volume of the celebrated Newcastle Forgotten Fantasy Library in 1975. David Lindsay (1876-1945) was a Scottish author now best remembered for the philosophical science fiction novel A Voyage to Arcturus (1920). Other novels by Lindsay include: The Haunted Woman (1922), Sphinx (1923), Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly (1926) [UK]; A Blade for Sale (1927) [US], Devil's Tor (1932), The Violet Apple and The Witch (1976) and A Christmas Play (2003).

Voyage to arcturus and the haunted woman by David Lindsay( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay combines fantasy, philosophy, and science fiction in an exploration of the nature of good and evil and their relationship with existence. It has been described by the critic and philosopher Colin Wilson as the greatest novel of the twentieth century. Lindsays descriptive prose is simply beyond compare. The Haunted Woman is a tense, atmospheric novel that questions the nature of reality. Isbel Loment is leading an ordinary, if uneventful, existence. She is engaged to a rather boring man and is just passing through her own life. Everything changes when she and her fiance rent a remote house in Sussex. In the house Isbel discovers rooms that appear to exist in different realities from her own. Her discoveries in this house will change both her life and her destiny forever
