Alan Moore writes his Bible: Jerusalem to be printed on Bible Paper?

Alan Moore’s prose novel Jerusalem, forthcoming 2012, will be approximately 750,000 words long.

I was talking to Professor Steve Jones at one of those evenings that I did, the Uncaged Monkeys at the Hammersmith Apollo. I was telling him that Jerusalem, when I’d passed the two-thirds mark, was already over half a million words. He said: “You know, that is bigger than the Bible.” So I was quite pleased with that. I’m just hoping everybody else will confuse quantity with quality. It’s undoubtedly a very big book.

of course, I have doubted that people will even be able to pick it up. This is going to be a very large book. I was talking to some people today who might be involved in the publishing of it. And they were suggesting why don’t we go it to a Bible publisher? Get it printed on Bible paper?

One thought on “Alan Moore writes his Bible: Jerusalem to be printed on Bible Paper?

  1. as a Brazilian big fan to Moore, for almost 20plus years already, I do agree with him; but, our counsciousness can “perfect” itself, and when we do become a “true self”, we can “escape” frm this “Samsara” (eternal recurrence, or Budist whell-of-life; Mr Moore had studed (?)(sorry my bad English) Gurdjieff´s work, and I am sure “he knows this”…btw the book by Anthony Pike, “Is There Life After the Death?” is also very “ellucidative” on this concern…
