Just as readers have been transfixed by the stories, characters, and deeper meanings of Lewis’ timeless tales in The Chronicles of Narnia, most find this same allure in his classic Space Trilogy. In these fantasy stories for adults we encounter, once again, magical creatures, a world of wonders, epic battles, and revelations of transcendent truths.

Out of the Silent Planet is the first novel in C.S. Lewis’ classic science fiction trilogy. It tells the adventure of Dr. Ransom, a Cambridge academic, who is abducted and taken on a spaceship to the red planet of Malacandra, which he knows as Mars. His captors are plotting to plunder the planet’s treasures and plan to offer Ransom as a sacrifice to the creatures who live there. Ransom discovers he has come from the “silent planet”—Earth—whose tragic story is known throughout the universe!

The New York Times

If wit and wisdom, style and scholarship are requisites to passage through the pearly gates, Mr. Lewis will be among the angels.

The New Yorker

Lewis, perhaps more than any other twentieth–century writer, forced those who listened to him and read his works to come to terms with their own philosophical presuppositions.

Los Angeles Times

C. S. Lewis

Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Out of the Silent PlanetThe Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classic Mere Christianity.

    Getting tired of all the medieval themed movies and books, most of which have been so modified that little or none of the correct time period exists within? Had enough of Lord of the Rings reruns (Note: I did not say re-reads. I love the works of J.R.R.) How about a trip to a planet far away where the landscape is almost indescribable? Where people of different regions seem to have odd ways of thinking about and dealing with each other, at least we think so at first glance. This trilogy is without a doubt C.S. Lewis' best kept secret. Yes, Chronicles is a great work and, for its mass, tells a tale that could never be contained within three short paperback books. However the Perelandra Space Trilogy provides the reader with mind images and philosophical paths to travel that even the Narnians have never seen. This is an excellent set of books to enjoy in any format, although my favorite is listening to the unabridged audio book while reading the text. So, if you like Star Trek more than Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey more than Hitchhiker's Guide, it doesn't matter, you will love reading these books. By the way, this applies to the books Perelandra and That Hideous Strength as well. (Note: That Hideous Strength suffers a bit from Lewis' personal thoughts about the war going on at the time.)
