From the author of Diary of a Drug Fiend comes another brilliant madcap tale involving Brits and black magic. The plot centers around a war between a group of white magicians, led by Simon Iff, and a group of black magicians, over an unborn child.
“From extensive dissertations on magic and spiritualism we are suddenly switched into humour that is sometimes normal, sometimes sardonic. From a glimpse into the blackest mysteries of Hecate we are transferred to a wonderful white vision of the poets. From the trivialities of peace we emerge into the horrors of the Great War. *Moonchild *is not more fantastic than a thorough going "thriller", but it is also a satire and an allegory, full of disorder and genius.” – The Aberdeen Press.
