9780007117932: Out of the Silent Planet / Perelandra (Voyager Classics): AND Perelandra

A special edition containing the first two novels in C.S. Lewis’s classic Cosmic Trilogy which tells the adventures of Dr Ransom who is kidnapped and transported to first Mars and then Venus.

Dr Ransom is a Cambridge academic who is captured whilst on a walking tour and forced into a spaceship by two men. With them he flies to Malacandra (Mars). There he escapes his two captors and discovers an amazing range of rational and spiritual creatures on the planet.

In the sequel, Ransom is sent by the Elida to Perelandra (Venus) to battle against evil incarnate and preserve a second Eden from the evil forces present in the possessed body of his enemy, Weston.

Through these works, Lewis explores issues of good and evil, and his remarkable and vividly imaginative descriptions of other worlds cements his place as a first-class author of science fiction adventure.
