David Lindsay

Author Code: EDLX

Born: Mar. 3, 1876 - London, England

Died: Jul. 16, 1945 - Brighton, England

From a poor Scottish family, Lindsay's education was limited because of financial concerns. He began working as an insurance clerk for Lloyd's of London. When the First World War broke out, he enlisted in the Grenadier Guards and subsequently moved to the Royal Army Pay Corps, serving for two years. Always an avid reader with a strong interest in literature, Lindsay turned to a writing career after the war. He and his wife moved to Cornwall and in 1920, he published the work for which he is best remembered today, A Voyage to Arcturus. The work received mixed reviews at the time and sales were slow. Nevertheless, Lindsay persevered and produced a number of novels over the next ten years. By 1929, however, Lindsay was in financial difficulties and was forced to move into a smaller home. Many of his works failed to find publishers during his lifetime and those that did were not great financial successes. Today, his A Voyage to Arcturus has an almost cult following and is considered by many to be one of the most important SF works of the 20th century. Lindsay became a recluse in his later years and died from an abscessed tooth that had caused gangrene. His other works include The haunted Woman (1922), Sphinx (1923), The Adventures of M de Mailly (1926), Blade for Sale (1927), Devil's Tor (1932) and The Witch (1975 Posthumous).
