OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET is the first volume of Lewis' space trilogy which is continued in PERELANDRA and THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH.
Dr. Ransom, a noted philologist, is kidnapped and flown by spaceship to Malacandra (Mars) where he flees his human captors and establishes communication with the planet's extraordinary inhabitants. What he learns galvanizes his attempt to return to Earth with a message of great urgency.
