A haunting, memorable extension of C. S. Lewis’ fantasies, these six stories, not all complete, reveal once more the power and vision of this greatest of story tellers.
The Dark Tower itself is a draft of a possible fourth volume to follow Lewis’ acclaimed adult science fiction trilogy. Two characters – Dr Ransom and McPhee – appear again, and the story contains sequences of brilliant debate about matter in time and space.

‘For all lovers of the writings of the late C. S. Lewis... this volume of writings will be as welcome as were his previous books...’
Born in Ireland in 1898, C S Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. Lewis was for many years an atheist. He describes his conversion in Surprised by Joy: "In the Trinity Term of 1929 I gave in, and admitted that God was God…perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England." One of the most gifted and influential Christian writers of our time, he is also celebrated for his Narnia chronicles and his literary criticism and science fiction. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
