Prepare to lose yourself in the heady, mythical expanse of The Vorrh, a daring debut that Alan Moore has called “a phosphorescent masterpiece” and “the current century's first landmark work of fantasy.”  Next to the colonial town of Essenwald sits the Vorrh, a vast—perhaps endless—forest. It is a place of demons and angels, of warriors and priests. Sentient and magical, the Vorrh bends time and wipes  memory. Legend has it that the Garden of Eden still exists at its heart. Now, a renegade English soldier aims to be the first human to traverse its expanse. Armed with only a strange bow, he begins his journey, but some fear the consequences of his mission, and a native marksman has been chosen to stop him. Around them swirl a remarkable cast of characters, including a Cyclops raised by robots and a young girl with tragic curiosity, as well as historical figures, such as writer Raymond Roussel and photographer and Edward Muybridge.  While fact and fictional blend, and the hunter will become the hunted, and everyone’s fate hangs in the balance, under the will of the Vorrh.  Afterword by Alan Moore Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “[In this] richly textured and enigmatic fantasy trilogy opener…Catling weaves an intricate story with a diverse cast of characters…It’s not easy to keep all the plots and subplots straight, but even those who struggle to navigate the labyrinth will still find the twisted journey thought provoking, full of memorable imagery and language.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A phosphorescent masterpiece…a brilliant and sustained piece of invention which establishes a benchmark not just for imaginative writing but for the human imagination in itself…Read this book, and marvel.”

    Alan Moore, author of V for Vendetta

  • “Brian Catling is simply a genius. His writing is so extraordinary it hurts; it makes me realize how little imagination I have.”

    Terry Gilliam, actor and member of the Monty Python comedy troupe

  • “There are not many books that rearrange the molecules of your being, turning your eyes inside out. The Vorrh, this saturnine post-traumatic testament, is one of them. A work of genius.”

    Iain Sinclair, British writer and filmmaker
