       Additional Information  
     
      Unique epic fantasy of a descent into Hell, a scientific nightmare devoted to the study of pain. Powys's vision is a bizarre synthesis of Dante's Inferno, the Fisher King legend, and his own personal obsessions, particularly his ambivalent fascination with sadistic tortures. A work of genius, peculiar and compelling.
