This book was released with an accompanying instrumental album, also entitled Earthed.
'The first book from The Church's singer, songwriter and bass guitarist picks up the loose threads of myth, legend, dream, non-sequitur, science fiction, automatic writing and the occasional punctuation error, and sews together a veritable exquisite corpse of nonsensical wisdom and arcane symmetry. It's a story within a story without a story; a buried plot with plenty of red herrings, split infinitives and easy-to-follow revelations, haunted throughout by your favourite arch-spy, Rudlof 'Just add Water' Neuman'. (Back cover.)
Dedication: To the dedicated.
