A Voyage to Arcturus

by David Lindsay

This book is literally fantastic. I have read it several times, and I will read it again. It is one of the few science fictions books I like. No wonder C. S. Lewis liked it so much. He was a good enough writer to appreciate the art in such a book that is overlooked by people that only like an easy style. Here something so important is being said that the artist doesn't stop to polish the details like Michangelo's "Men Tearing Themselves out of Rocks" the roughness of the texture adds to the final quality of the reality presented.

Absolutely supurb.
