    Good collection but poor formatting

    C.S. Lewis was an amazing writer and I am very impressed by his material. Unfortunately, I am not so impressed by this e-book. The book is rife with misspellings, odd punctuation, capitalization that does not belong, and just plain poor formatting. There are errors in spelling of the sort that seem to generate from digitization through scanning: transposition of letters such as F for L, and randomly placed letters or punctuation, among others.
    3 stars only for the poor formatting, which sadly seriously distracts from the excellent writing.

    great collection of lewis' work

    Most of the stories in this collection can be found elsewhere. What makes this collection a treasure is the two incomplete novels, The Dark Tower and After Ten Years, both of which are well written enjoyable stories that I wish I could read the end to. also included are several other excellent stories by lewis. A definite must have for any sci-fi fan.

    an amazing book

    i was astonished when i stumbled upon this book. i have enjoyed c.s. lewis's writing style for years and this is one of his most thought provoking works since the space trilogy.

    ...

    I read this book for my Encounters with Literature class. There is a lot of criticism about whether C.S. Lewis actually wrote any of these stories though, since this was published after his death and was supposedly "discovered" by his secretary, Walter Hooper. But it is recognized as being written by C.S. Lewis regardless, and either way, The Dark Tower is very interesting, and so is some of the short stories in it -- "The Shoddy Lands" probably being my favorite.

    Dark Tower

    I loved this book! But was so mad that there was no end...he seemed to stop at the most interesting part! But it was still well worth it. I had the hardest time finding it again after I first read it though.
