the Violet
The Life and Works of David Lindsay

The Violet is a site dedicated to fantasy writer David Lindsay, author of A Voyage to Arcturus, The Haunted Woman, and other works, including, of course, The Violet Apple.

The aim of the site is twofold: to introduce Lindsay to those who don't know about him, and to provide more information about his life and works for those who want to find out more.

Please note: This site is not official, nor in any way associated with the David Lindsay estate, so I can't answer questions relating to copyright, permission to adapt his works, and so on. I do welcome news and information about David Lindsay, though. Click on my name at the foot of the page to send me an email.
