""In life and art both, as it seems to me, we are always trying to catch in our net of successive moments something that is not successive . . . But I think it is sometimes done--or very, very nearly done--in stories.""
C.S. Lewis is widely known for his fiction, especially his stories of science fiction and fantasy, for which he was a pioneering author in an age of realistic fiction. In "On Stories," he lays out his theories and philosophy on fiction over the course of nine essays, including "On Stories," "The Death of Words," and "On Three Ways of Writing for Children." In addition to these essays, "On Stories "collects eleven pieces of Lewis's writing that were unpublished during his lifetime. Along with discussing his own fiction, Lewis reviewed and critiqued works by many of his famous peers, including George Orwell, Charles Williams, Rider Haggard, and his good friend J.R.R. Tolkien, providing a wide-ranging look at what fiction means and how to craft it from one of the masters of his day.
