A Voyage to Arcturus in The Guardian's list of 1000 Novels Everyone Must Read
23 January 2009

The Guardian has included A Voyage to Arcturus in its list of "1000 Novels Everyone Must Read", in the Science Fiction & Fantasy section (part two).

Nice to see Arcturus mentioned in the list — it was through such a list that I first came across the writings of David Lindsay (in Michael Moorcock & James Cawthorne's Fantasy: The 100 Best Books) — though I can't help feeling it will get a little bit lost in amongst a thousand novels, some of which are surely not among the books we must read. (I haven't even got through Moorcock & Cawthorne's one hundred yet.)

You can explore the full list of the Guardian's 1000 novels here.
