          Sinopsis
          This carefully crafted ebook: "A Voyage to Arcturus & The Haunted Woman" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. A Voyage to Arcturus - The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, which, in the novel is a double star system, consisting of stars Branchspell and Alppain. The lands through which the characters travel represent philosophical systems or states of mind, through which the main character, Maskull, passes on his search for the meaning of life. Described by critic and philosopher Colin Wilson as the "greatest novel of the twentieth century", it was a central influence on C. S. Lewis' Space Trilogy, and through him on J. R. R. Tolkien, who said he read the book "with avidity".The Haunted Woman - Isabel Loment, engaged to the ordinary and unexceptional Marshall Stokes, leads a peripatetic existence as the ward of her aunt, Ann Moor. Their travels take them to the downlands of Sussex, to Runhill Court, an ancient home owned by Henry Judge. There Isabel discovers a strange staircase few can see, which leads upwards to three doors. She chooses one, which opens onto a room that appears to exist only part of the time; what might lie behind the other doors remains a mystery….David Lindsay was an author now best remembered for the philosophical science fiction novel A Voyage to Arcturus. The secret of Lindsay's originality as a novelist lies in his metaphysical assumptions.
          Acerca de David Lindsay

          David Lindsay (1876-1945) is a writer best known for his first novel, A Voyage to Arcturus. Published in 1920, it has been called "the greatest imaginative work of the twentieth century" (Colin Wilson), "a stupendous ontological fable" (E H Visiak), "a masterpiece... an extraordinary work" (Clive Barker), "that shattering, intolerable, and irresistible work" (C S Lewis), and "less a novel than it is private kabbalah" (Alan Moore). John Grant, in The Encyclopedia of Fantasy, called it "a masterpiece of allegorical fantasy".Lindsay himself said that as long as publishing existed he would have readers, however few, and has been proved right. A Voyage to Arcturus, and his subsequent novels The Haunted Woman (1922), Sphinx (1923), The Adventures of Monsieur de Mailly (1926) and Devil's Tor (1932) have found a growing audience of devotees, enabling his unpublished novels (The Violet Apple, and the unfinished The Witch) to be brought out in the 1970s. He has been translated into French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Bulgarian, Russian, Japanese, Catalan, Romanian and Turkish.
