Biography:

1876-1945
British writer. Lindsay's major works are all attempts to combine philosophy with various types of novel. His most imaginative work, A Voyage to Arcturus (1920), uses Wellsian space travel to another planet as a template for a spiritual quest. Lindsay's other novels are more conventional but still powerful. The Haunted Woman (1922) is a kind of haunted house story, where some people are at times able to see and enter a staircase leading up to a nonexistent part of the house. Devil's Tor (1932) concerns the worship of the Great Mother and the reunion of a magical talisman associated with her worship that was broken in ancient times.
