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.

About the Author

Johann Valentin Andreae (1586–1654), or Johannes Valentinus Andreä, was a Lutheran theologian, who claimed to have written Chymische Hochzeit Christiani Rosencreutz, one of the three founding works of Rosicrucianism, as a youthful jest. He was born in Herrenberg, Württemberg, in southwest Germany, studied theology and natural sciences in Tübingen, and died in Stuttgart after a long career in the church.

About the Narrator

John Crowley, a major voice in imaginative writing, was born in Presque Isle, Maine, in 1942. After college in Indiana he moved to New York City to make movies and found work in documentary films, an occupation he still pursues. Crowley teaches creative writing at Yale University and has published many novels, among them Engine Summer, the Ægypt quartet, and Little, Big. He is a three-time winner of the World Fantasy Award and in 1992 received the Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
