This final story is set on Earth, and tells of a terrifying conspiracy against humanity, a plot to recreate mankind in the image of slave robots. The story surrounds Mark and Jane Studdock, a newly married couple. Mark is a Sociologist who is enticed to join an organisation called N.I.C.E. which aims to control all human life. His wife, meanwhile, has bizarre prophetic dreams about a decapitated scientist, Alcasan. As Mark is drawn inextricably into the sinister organisation, he discovers the truth of his wife's dreams when he meets the literal head of Alcasan which is being kept alive by infusions of blood. Jane seeks help concerning her dreams at a community called St Anne's, where she meets their leader -- Dr Ransom (the main character of the previous two titles in the trilogy). The story ends in a final spectacular scene at the N.I.C.E. headquarters where Merlin appears to confront the powers of Hell.Read Less
New in New jacket. The last book of Lewis's sci-fi trilogy is a breakneck journey of suspense in which Dr. Ransom must choose sides in a battle between science and ethics. Like Perelandra and Out of the Silent Planet, this is a compelling work of fiction that is also, at its heart, a timeless allegory of good and evil. Full refund if not satisfied.

C.S. Lewis demonstrates an uncanny and prescient
look into the 21st first century with this unique novel.
It is one of my all time favorites! Every time I read it I understand something new. Although Lewis was already seeing the dangers of progressivism in the 1940's we are having a fresh look at its sinister implications today.
This is the third tome of Lewis' Science Fiction Trilogy but can be read alone. If one is willing to read all three books, (not long at all),
one will be rewarded with deeper insights !
Unparalleled enjoyment in fiction !
