Overview

A NOVEL THAT COMBINES FANTASY, PHILOSOPHY AND SCIENCE FICTION IN AN EXPLORATION OF THE NATURE OF GOOD AND EVIL AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH EXISTENCE!

The novel is not really science fiction in the technological sense. An interstellar voyage is mostly a perfunctory background framework to a narrative of a journey through fantastic landscapes.
Maskull, a man longing for adventures, accepts an invitation from Krag, an acquaintance of his friend Nightspore, to travel to Tormance after a seance. The three set off in a crystal ship from an abandoned observatory in Scotland but Maskull awakens to find himself alone on Tormance. In every land he passes through he usually meets only one or two persons; these meetings often (though not always) end in the death of those he meets, either at his own hand or by that of another. He learns of his own impending death, meets Krag again, and dies shortly after learning that he is in fact Nightspore himself. The book concludes with a final revelation from Krag (who claims to be known on Earth as "Pain") to Nightspore about the origin of the Universe.
All of the characters and lands are types used to convey the author's critique of several philosophical systems.

    Love it or hate it

    This is the most fascinating story I've ever read, but a good visual imagination is required. Without giving too much away (I hope), I keep thinking of what the Joker said to Batman. 'Did you ever dance with the devil by the pale moonlight?'
