Jones writes "Literally, ellor-gast means a spirit from elsewhere, and it was the 'otherness' that held terror for Beowulf's audience. It finds its modern equation in science fiction's preoccupation with the unknown and unquatifiable 'alien.' The passages I have translated and the images I have made are an attempt to capture the ellor-gast in Beowulf." Printed on paper specially made for this book at Moulin du Verger, France.
