Of Other Worlds: Essays and Stories
"The less known the real world is, the more plausibly your marvels can be located near at hand."As the creator of one of the most famous "other worlds" of all time, C.S. Lewis was uniquely qualified to discuss their literary merit. As both a writer and a critic, Lewis explores the importance of story and wonder, elements often ignored or even frowned upon by critics of the day. His discussions of his favorite kinds of stories--children's stories and fantasies--includes his thoughts on his most famous works, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy. "A must for any collection of C. S. Lewis." --"Choice"
