Summary

The revered author’s definitive collection of short fiction, which explores enduring spiritual and science fiction themes such as space, time, reality, fantasy, God, and the fate of humankind.

From C.S. Lewis - the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics - comes a collection of his dazzling short fiction.

This collection of futuristic fiction includes a breathtaking science fiction story written early in his career in which Cambridge intellectuals witness the breach of space-time through a chronoscope - a telescope that looks not just into another world, but into another time.

As powerful, inventive, and profound as his theological and philosophical works, The Dark Tower reveals another side of Lewis’s creative mind and his longtime fascination with reality and spirituality. It is ideal listening for fans of J. R. R. Tolkien, Lewis’s longtime friend and colleague.

Buyer beware... incomplete works

If I had known ahead of time that this collection had unfinished stories, I would not have purchased. Unless I missed it somehow, that was not included in the summary, but definitely should be. There are a couple very short writings, but the main attraction is an unfinished concept. To be honest, there are more "notes" on the author than there is substance. This is probably geared toward true collectors.

Not worth a credit and will definitely be exchanging.

Great stories hindered by poor narration

These same stories are available in C.S. Lewis: Essay Collection (starting at chapter 130), which is narrated by Geoffrey Howard.

Excellent for a compilation of unfinished works

I love C S Lewis books. His friend has done an excellent job at publishing some of his unfinished works. There were a couple of times I got lost between stories because I didn’t realize there was a change. I did not enjoy “10 Years Ago” only because I am not a fan of Troy stories.

Great study

The brilliance of the writer is at work in all of these works. It makes you want the completed stories but the stories that are not finished are still gripping.

Worth your time

For a collection of shorts it was very enjoyable. C.S. Lewis is always time well spent.

Riveting

I wish C S Lewis had been able to finish them. Read well and deep
