CS Lewis

Science Fiction and Fantasy author. An Oxford don, and one of the creators of OUSFG, also one of the Ink Lings alongside JRR Tolkien.

His books include the Narnia Chronicles (The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe etc) and the Cosmic Trilogy (Out of the Silent Planet, Perelandra, That Hideous Strength).

According to Philip Pullman, CS Lewis's work is "blatantly racist" and "monumentally disparaging of women", being "propaganda in the cause of the religion he believed in." (according to <http://books.guardian.co.uk/guardianhayfestival2002/story/0,11873,726818,00.html>).

More to come.
