Of Other Worlds

by Lewis, C S

Of Other Worlds by C.S. Lewis contains a cohesive collection of his revered essays and stories. The work examines the value of creative writing and imaginative exploration, providing commentary on the importance of the whimsical. 

C. S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—presents a well-reasoned case for the importance of story and wonder, elements often ignored by critics of his time. He also discusses his favorite kinds of stories—children’s stories and fantasies—and offers insights into his most famous works, The Chronicles of Narnia and the Space Trilogy.
