Synopsis: A collection of Lewis’s complete shorter fiction, including two previously unpublished works, “The Dark Tower” and “The Man Born Blind.” Edited and with a Preface by Walter Hooper.

From the Back Cover: "Lewis's words appear often in my Mitford stories. He is pivotal."--Jan Karon "A superb storyteller."--Anthony Burgess   The Dark Tower, an eerie, highly entertaining novella, finds five men gathered secretly in a room at Cambridge University to witness the workings of the chronoscope, an invention that "does to time what the telescope does to space." The resulting sequence of bizarre events involves Dr. Elwin Ransom, familiar to readers of C.S. Lewis's Out of the Silent Planet. "The Man Born Blind," a short story, dramatizes the relationship between appearance and reality. Also collected here are a retelling of a Greek myth entitled "After Ten Years" and three skillful works of futuristic fiction.   C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) gained international renown for an impressive array of beloved works both popular and scholarly: literary criticism, children's literature, fantasy literature, and numerous books on theology. Among his most celebrated achievements are Out of the Silent Planet, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, and Surprised by Joy.
