A Voyage to Arcturus is a novel by Scottish writer David Lindsay, first published in 1920. It 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 critic and philosopher Colin Wilson as the "greatest novel of the twentieth century", and was a central influence on C. S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. Also J. R. R. Tolkien said he read the book "with avidity", and praised it as a work of philosophy, religion, and morality. It was made widely available in paperback form when published as one of the precursor volumes to the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series in 1968, featuring a cover by illustrator Bob Pepper. Lindsay's choice of title (and therefore the setting of Arcturus) may have been influenced by the nonfictional A Voyage to the Arctic in the Whaler Aurora published in 1911 by his namesake, David Moore Lindsay.
An interstellar voyage is the framework for a narrative of a journey through fantastic landscapes. The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, which, in the novel (but not in reality) is a double star system, consisting of stars Branchspell and
Sphinx is a 1979 novel by Robin Cook. In 1981, it was adapted into the film Sphinx, starring Lesley-Anne Down as "Erica Baron" and Frank Langella as "Akmed Khazzan" (partly filmed in Egypt).
The main plot of the book revolves around a young tourist to Egypt and the trouble she gets into inadvertently.
Well known for his medical fiction, Robin Cook has assured that not a single medical term has been used in this novel.
The Haunted Woman is a dark, metaphysical fantasy novel by David Lindsay. It was first published, somewhat cut, as a serial in The Daily News in 1921. It was first published in book form by Methuen & Co. Ltd., London, in 1922. 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.. It was reissued by Gollancz in 1947. 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 March, 1975; the Newcastle edition was the first American edition. Later editions were issued by Borgo Press (1980), Canongate (1987), Wildside Press (2003), and Tartarus Press (2004).
