Publisher's Description

"’Of course,’ said Orfieu, ’the sort of time-travelling you read about in books—time-travelling in the body—is absolutely impossible.’"

So begins The Dark Tower, a captivating novella that continues the adventures of Dr. Elwin Ransom after the events of Out of the Silent Planet, the first novel is Lewis’s Space Trilogy. In Orfieu’s office at Cambridge University, five men gather to witness the breach of space-time through the chronoscope, a telescope that looks not just into another world, but into another time. Also included are "After Ten Years," Lewis’s retelling of Menelaus’s battle for Helen, "The Man Born Blind," the story of a man who after gaining sight for the first time in his life learns about the relative nature of reality, and three other short stories. A necessary anthology for fans of futuristic fiction, this collection cements Lewis’s place in the science fiction canon.

"A superb storyteller." –Anthony Burgess

    Anthony Shuler
    This book contains several short fictions and two books that Lewis never finished. Most of the short fictions were great with one exception which was vile and unchristian. Of the two books unfinished: one was quite boring and the other, The Dark Tower, was superb and I wish Lewis would have finished it. It would have certainly been one of the greatest books he ever wrote.
