MacDonald, George: Lilith. v1. 20 May 07
Here's a small excerpt from the book:
“Of course not!” he returned; “all the doors you had yet seen-and you haven’t seen many-were doors in; here you came upon a door out! The strange thing to you,” he went on thoughtfully, “will be, that the more doors you go out of, the farther you get in!"
"How am I to begin that where everything is so strange?”
A great fantasy novel.
I hope you enjoy it.

MacDonald was way ahead of the curve with his talk of multiple dimensions and parallel universes. This book deserves far more attention than it has received. I'm not surprised to learn that MacDonald and Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) were friends. Their stories has some similar characteristics in their use of word play and logical conundrums.

My favorite of his by far is Phantastes. C.S. Lewis said Phantastes was the book that 'baptised his imagination' and led to his spiritual awakening. He claimed that he never once wrote a book without quoting G. Macdonald somewhere in it.
I highly recommend Phantastes.
