A stunning achievement in speculative
fiction, A Voyage to Arcturus has inspired, enchanted, and unsettled
readers for decades. It is an epic quest across one of the most unusual
and brilliantly depicted alien worlds ever conceived, a profoundly
moving journey of discovery into the metaphysical heart of the universe,
and a shockingly intimate excursion into what makes us human and
unique. After a strange journey, Maskull, a man from Earth, awakens
alone in a desert on the planet Tormance, seared by the suns of the
binary star Arcturus. As he journeys northward, guided by a drumbeat, he
encounters a world and its inhabitants like no other, where gender is a
victory won at dear cost; where landscape and emotion are drawn into an
accursed dance; where heroes are killed, reborn, and renamed; and where
the cosmological lures of Shaping, who may be God, torment Maskull in
his astonishing pilgrimage. At the end of his arduous and increasingly
mystical quest waits a dark secret and an unforgettable revelation.
