By George MacDonald
Lilith is the story of Mr. Vane, an orphan and heir to his family estate and fortune. The mysterious librarian at his family's home—“Mr. Raven”—appears and claims to have known not only Mr. Vane’s father but all his ancestors before him. Mr. Vane is led by the librarian through an old mirror and into a "region of the seven dimensions" where he explores various hallucinatory manifestations of good and evil. Journeying through this strange land, Mr. Vane is caught up in a cosmic conflict and must reconcile his perceptions of reality with his new understandings. In chronicling the five trips Mr. Vane makes to this other world, MacDonald, in his strikingly visual prose, hauntingly explores the ultimate mystery of evil.
Most myths were made in prehistoric times…. But every now and then there occurs in the modern world a genius…who can make such a story. MacDonald is the greatest genius of this kind whom I know. ~C. S. Lewis
