It includes an exclusive foreword compiled from letters by J.R.R. Tolkien, who inspired Lewis to write the first volume and on whom the main character of Ransom was largely based. The Space Trilogy is a remarkable work of fantasy, demonstrating the powerful imagination of C. S. Lewis.

Perelandra

A sinister society run by his old adversaries intends to harness the ancient powers of a resurrected Merlin in their ambition to subjugate the people of Earth.

He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and have been transformed into three major motion pictures.

3 very unique stories that have one character in common. This e-version is very readable without gaps or misprints. I loved these stories as a young adult and respect and love them still. These adult fairytale or fantasy book contain themes which are timeless.

These have long been my favorite books of science fiction/fantasy/allegory. In my opinion, they are far better than the Lord of the Ring series of Lewis's close friend J.R.R. Tolkien. The 3rd book of the series, That Hideous Strength, adds in elements of a distopian political thriller and a truly creepy horror story. A multi-genre masterpiece!

A deep and ponderous adventure through the galaxy. No words are wasted in creating a curious world where the limits of human nature are challenged. Even in the first novel, one of Lewis' earliest works, there are wonderfully explored themes of morality and divinity. Worth a read to anyone and everyone.
