Acclaimed comics writer Alan Moore has published one novel, 1996's Voice of the Fire.
The first chapter, "Hob's Hog," is the tale of a Neolithic simpleton unable to tell the difference between the waking world and his dreams. The chapter is written in a dense, idiosyncratic style somewhat like that of Russell Hoban's post-apocalyptic novel Riddley Walker.
Anecdotally, many readers put the novel down a few pages into this difficult yet rewarding chapter.
Art Turner Jr. has translated the unnamed narrator's tale into modern standard English and partially annotated the chapter to boot.
