Occult fantasy novel wherein "the hero becomes involved with an adept who has harnessed the magical powers of sound but still needs a particular chord to perfect his powers -- but is such power meant to be attained by man? A very unusual and original work which binds its allegory neatly into its narrative; it has affinities with the metaphysical fantasies of David Lindsay." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-35. "Highly original, unusual, brilliantly executed." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 179. Ashley, Who's Who in Horror and Fantasy Fiction, pp. 36-7. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-35.
