4.0 out of 5 stars At last!, 28 Feb. 2014
Mr. David E. Buckley "David Buckley" (East Yorkshire, UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charles Williams Omnibus - War in Heaven, Many Dimensions, the Place of the Lion, Shadows of Ecstasy, the Greater Trumps, Descent Into Hell, All Hallo (Paperback)
At last the novels of Charles Williams are available in the UK. CW was an important member of the Inklings in Oxford during the war when the Oxford University Press was moved to Oxford from London. As such he was associated with C S Lewis and J R R Toklein. It is said that he influenced C S Lewis' novel, "That Hideous Strength". This may be true, but the influence was not from these novels, but more his Arthurian poems. C S Lewis did enjoy The Place of the Lion and the Inklings helped with the flow of his last (and best) novel, "All Hallows Eve". These 7 novel and 1 short story are overflowing with ideas, so much so that some are difficult to follow on first reading. One such is "Descent Into Hell" which was available on Kindle (as were 2 others). These are an amazing set of what could be called (in the best sense) Fairy Tales for adults or Spiritual Horror stories where man is not in control of either the forces of good or evil.
