—ICONIC AUTHOR: Alan Moore is the most acclaimed writer in the history of comics, and a godlike figure in the world of speculative fiction.
—CATCH A SECOND WIND: Moore, now retired from graphic novels, has just announced a 5-volume fantasy epic in prose fiction, so it’s a perfect time to discover his first novel.
—Alan Moore’s astonishing first prose novel is just as groundbreaking and mind-blowing as his celebrated achievements in the graphic novel form (Watchmen, From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta, etc)
—Alan Moore’s second novel, Jerusalem (2016, Liveright/Norton), has sold a combined 30,000 Bookscan units despite its staggering thousand-page length, and created a new generation of readers primed for discovering Voice of the Fire.
—Moore continues to be a vital cultural figure, as his million-selling Watchmen graphic novel saw not only a 2009 film but a smash hit 2019 series on HBO.
—Lately out of print, Voice of the Fire now returns for its third Top Shelf edition with an all-new cover.
“Do not trust the tales, or the town, or even the man who tells the tales. Trust only the voice of the fire.”—Neil Gaiman
“A daring, unsettling work of literature.”—Locus
“[Alan Moore’s] many-layered, symbolism-intensive comics style…shows through in his prose writing, which is packed with big ideas about millennia-spanning drifts in human history, language, conceptualization, storytelling, and religion. But he doesn’t let those ideas get in the way of his solid, entertaining yarns…Part mythic cycle, part fictional history of Moore’s hometown, part collection of fireside ghost stories, Voice of the Fire is as clever and well-crafted as Moore’s other genre experiments, and by taking his dialogue out of word-balloons and panel arrangements, it gives his limitless literary ambition room to stretch out into new and fascinating forms.”—Tasha Robinson, The A.V. Club
