The first novel in C.S. Lewis's classic sci-fi trilogy which tells the adventure of Dr Ransom who is kidnapped and transported to Mars / C.S. Lewis's only other major work of fiction outside The Chronicles of Narnia. / Classic and thrilling science fiction writing, inspired particularly by Lewis's closest friends JRR Tolkien and Arthur C Clarke. / The release of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe film in December will inspire new fans to read more Lewis (e.g. The Silmarillion sales leapt up more than 400% after The Lord of the Rings). These new editions are carefully positioned to make full capital of that demand.
