Fantastic Travelogue: Mark Twain and CS Lewis Talk Things Over in The Hereafter
by S. Dorman
Scrolling down this page, in Smashwords, will bring you to links for sampling various file-types of FANTASTIC TRAVELOGUE. Jack Lewis—here as a fictive character experiencing a state of phantasm—is not the great rhetorical craftsman out to convince through argument. In fact, he is discovering that argument is of little use in his limping hope to convert the old satiric storyteller and wounded Job-like public stand-in of his day.
Mark Twain as a character was easier to draw for the strength of his voice, the singleness of his spiritual dilemma, and the abundance of material in the public domain. Many are unaware that he wrote of hitching a ride on a comet, and gave an account of going to sea in a drop of water. In this story together they range, experiencing aspects of the astronomical; of terrestrial geography, biology, Western cultural history, and the fictive supernatural.
Two others take part in the conversation, the Renaissance astronomer Johannes Kepler and the Scots romanticist George MacDonald.
