the Violet
The Life and Works of David Lindsay

The Violet is a site dedicated to fantasy writer David Lindsay, author of A Voyage to Arcturus, The Haunted Woman, and other works, including, of course, The Violet Apple.

The aim of the site is twofold: to introduce Lindsay to those who don't know about him, and to provide more information about his life and works for those who want to find out more.
