Summary: On Stories is a companion volume to Lewis's collected shorter fiction, The Dark Tower and Other Stories and presents the literary face of C. S. Lewis's many aspects. The theme of this collection is the excellence of Story, especially the kind of story dear to C. S. Lewis -- fantasy and science fiction, which he fostered in an age dominated by realistic fiction. Gathered here are nine essays, including "On Stories" and "On Three Ways of Writing for Chil
