The Cosmic Trilogy is a remarkable work of fantasy, demonstrating yet again the powerful imagination of C.S Lewis.

OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET

Dr Ransom, a Cambridge academic is kidnapped and transported to another planet, Malacandra (Mars). His captors are plotting to plunder the planet′s treasures and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the rational creatures they have found there. Through the Malacandrans, spiritual truths concerning the Earth are uncovered.

PERELANDRA

On Perelandra (Venus), Dr Ransom finds himself battling to preserve a second Eden from the evil forces present in the possessed body of his enemy Dr Weston.

THAT HIDEOUS STRENGTH

Back on Earth Jane Studdock is disturbed by prophetic nightmares while her husband, Mark, is drawn into the National Institute for Co-ordinated Experiments which is engaged in a plan to recreate mankind in the image of slave robots.

These are thrilling stories with a spiritual message. Through the fantasy of other worlds, Lewis explores the issues of good and evil, God and the devil and ponders the future of the human race.

About the Author

Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast in 1898. As a child, he was fascinated by the fairy tales, myths and ancient legends recounted to him by his Irish nurse. The image of a faun carrying parcels and an umbrella in a snowy wood came to him when he was 16. However, it was not until many years later as a professor at Cambridge University that the faun was joined by an evil queen and a magnificent lion. Their story became The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, one of the best-loved books of all time. Six further Chronicles of Narnia followed and the final title, The Last Battle, published in 1956, was awarded the highest mark of excellence in children′s literature - the prestigious Carnegie award.
