Used by C.S. Lewis himself, the term qscientifictionq is revived here as it once encompassed not only what we call science fiction, but also that indeterminate field of the 1940s and 1950s sometimes referred to as science fantasy (leading up to Ray Bradbury), along with a portion of that great realm that has come, since the advent of The Lord of the Rings, to be called fantasy. Rather as an eighteenth-century novel may pre-date the divide between novel and romance, so C.S. Lewis's qinterplanetaryq novels may be considered to pre-date the modern divide between fantasy and science fiction and thus be thought of as qscientifictionalq in nature. The stories dealt with are those in which Elwin Ransom is a character, the three usually called the qspace trilogyq: Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength--and the time-fragment entitled The Dark Tower. Lengthy chapters are devoted to each of the four Ransom stories. The book presents a study of Lewis, the nature of science fiction, the nature of Lewis's qArcadianq science fiction and his (and its) place in English literary history.Space and Time in the Ransom Stories Jared Lobdell. would claim, and this book suggests, that this satirical pageant and pastoral is the broad area of literaturea€” call it the genre if you willa€”of which science-fiction is the modern subgenre.
