Synopsis: The darkest and most reprinted of George MacDonald’s works, Lilith explores how people dream and search for salvation. This is a story of divine punishment and hard won salvation. Mr. Vane owns a library which seems to be haunted by the former librarian, a raven-like individual who moves along the edges of his sight. The ghost knew Mr. Vane’s father and offers hints into the parallel universe he once visited. Vane follows this raven wraith into this new universe. There, he learns of a house of beds where dreams sleep until the end of the world. A myriad of creatures occupy this new reality, one Mr. Vane intends to explore despite the danger.

Review: "Lilith is equal if not superior to the best of Poe," the great 20th-century poet W.H. Auden said of this novel, but the comparison only begins to touch on the richness, density, and wonder of this late 19th-century adult fantasy novel. First published in 1895 (inhabiting a universe with the early Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, and Oscar Wilde--not to mention Thomas Hardy), this is the story of the aptly named Mr. Vane, his magical house, and the journeys into another world into which it leads him.

Meeting up with one mystery after another, including Adam and Eve themselves, he slowly but surely explores the mystery of the human fall from grace, and of our redemption. Instructed into the ways of seeing the deeper realities of this world--seeing, in a sense, by the light of the spirit--the reader and Mr. Vane both sense that MacDonald writes from his own deep experience of radiance, from a bliss so profound that death's darkness itself is utterly eclipsed in its light. --Doug Thorpe
