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 whichorbits 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 a work of genius and one of the most blasphemous books ever written.
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.
