Today, November 22nd, is the 50th anniversary of C.S. Lewis’ death. I thought it an appropriate time to discuss our favorite works of Lewis and perhaps share what influence, if any, he has had on us. Plus, that all adds up to a perfect chance for another giveaway too!
The winner will receive a copy of On Stories, The Screwtape Letters, and Till We Have Faces. So, there’s a lot to be gained by entering the giveaway! To do so, leave a comment here telling us about your favorite work by C.S. Lewis and/or telling us what influence, if any, he has had on your life. The giveaway will run through November 29th.
This month sees the 50th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis. He died on November 22, 1963. You may also remember it as the day on which U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Author Aldous Huxley also died that day.
I won’t go into great detail here on a biography of Lewis. It would take too much time and space! Let’s just say Jack (as he preferred to be known) has had an enormous impact in the 20th century and onward. Known for his scholarly works, his Christian literature, and also his Christian apologetic works, Lewis is still widely read today and very influential in those areas.

Her West of the Moon trilogy has just been revised and released in a single volume from HarperCollins. I’m halfway through my own copy and I have to say–it’s breathtaking. A complex, emotional, well-wrought coming-of-age cycle. It’s also about Vikings, but not in the way you’d immediately expect.
So I’m delighted to announce that The Hog’s Head has two signed copies to give away.
Here’s how you get one:
The Harry Potter Franchise is just too good to stop. It’s not enough to hear the author tell us what she thinks happened–we want to read it, and we want to see it, right? Continue reading
