The Violet Apple and the Witch

An omnibus of novels by

The Violet Apple is a love story infused with Christian themes. The story centers around the cultivation of an apple tree from a a seed which, according to legend, belonged to the original tree in the garden of Eden. The tree grows, fives forth two violet apples, and dies. The lovers eat the violet apples, and what happens next will be hauntingly familiar to all fans of A Voyage to Arcturus.

The Witch is David Lindsay's final novel, and one he considered to be his major work. The manuscript had been missing for over twenty years, and only just rediscovered. It describes the haunting of a man's consciousness by the "music" of a "witch" and culminates in a description of the soul's experiences after death."
