“It is only when you touch the higher that you realize how low we may be among the possibilities of creation.”
— Arthur Conan Doyle (1929), The Maracot Deep
Arthur Conan Doyle is best known for his seminal works centred around Sherlock Holmes. His deep spiritual outlook, however, comes through in The Maracot Deep, an exciting jump into science fiction. First serialised in 1927 and 1928 and followed in 1929 with a short sequel, this book is undeservedly under-appreciated.
Hermitage Editions is delighted to announce that we will be producing, with the blessings of and in collaboration with the Conan Doyle estate, a newly illustrated fine press edition of The Maracot Deep.
The Maracot Deep will be part of our Science Fiction collection.
