9780025712508: That Hideous Strength: A Modern Fairy-Tale for Grown-Ups

Jane Studdock has dreams for which she can find no explanation. At the same time her husband Mark joins the National Institute of Coordinated Experiments (NICE) which is building a facility on the ancient site of Merlin's tomb. Soon NICE dominates their lives, and Mark and Jane find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict between good and evil.

C.S. Lewis ends his celebrated space trilogy with a story of satanic will, and an exploration of the lengths to which love and duty can be stretched.

"Well-written, fast-paced satirical fantasy." (Time)
