The Chemical Wedding

Often described as an alchemical allegory, John Crowley instead decided this is “the first science fiction novel.” After all “it’s fiction; it’s about the possibilities of a science; and it’s a novel.” No matter what else it might be, it’s definitely “one of the great outlandish stories in Western literature.” Illustrated throughout with weird and fascinating woodcuts by Theo Fadel.

Deep mysteries made public are cheapened, and popularized things lose their value. So don’t throw pearls before swine, or make a bed of roses for a donkey.
