  • Diablo Propone Unbrindis – (Spanish)

    $14.99

    La unica secuela oficial, escrita por el propio Lewis, de la siempre popular Cartas del diablo, publicada junto con otros ensayos breves.

    Uno de los libros mas populares que jamas haya salido de la pluma de C. S. Lewis fue escrito en nombre del diablo, un demonio mayor, experimentado en el arte de atraer a sus “pacientes” en la tierra a su propia condenacion al servicio de “nuestro padre abajo” y capacitar a otros para que hagan lo mismo.

    La correspondencia del diablo con su sobrino, un aprendiz de diablo, llego a manos de Lewis, dijo, por una ruta que no quiso revelar, y muchos lectores han terminado la coleccion anhelando mas de las ideas que obtuvieron de su sabiduria.

    Para gran resistencia de Lewis, este discurso de despues de la cena, dado por el diablo a una clase de demonios que se graduaban en una universidad en el infierno, salio a la luz unos aos despues de la publicacion de las cartas originales. Ahora, 80 aos despues, el discurso se reproduce en su totalidad una vez mas, junto con una breve coleccion de otras obras menos conocidas pero perennes de Lewis.

    Mucha gente se habra olvidado de la unica “secuela” oficial que existe de “el diablo”, el 80 aniversario de la publicacion de “El diablo” es la oportunidad perfecta para traer esto de vuelta. Este volumen incluye tambien siete brillantes ensayos de Lewis, incluido el famoso El peso de la gloria.

    Screwtape Proposes a Toast

    The only official sequel, penned by Lewis himself, to the ever-popular ‘Screwtape Letters” – published alongside other short essays.

    One of the most popular books ever to come from the pen of C.S. Lewis was written in the name of Screwtape, a senior devil, experienced in the art of luring his “patients” on earth to their own damnation in service of “our father below” – and training others to do the same.

    Screwtape’s correspondence with his nephew, an apprentice devil, came into Lewis’s hands, he said, by a route he would not disclose, and many a reader has finished the collection longing for more of the insights they gained from its wisdom.

    Much to Lewis’s resistance, this after-dinner speech, given by Screwtape to a graduating class of demons at a college in hell, came to light a few years after the publication of the original letters. Now 80 years later, the speech is reproduced in full once more, along with a short collection of Lewis’s other lesser-known, but perennial works.

    Many people will have forgotten about the only official “sequel” th

  • Innoncence Of Father Brown

    $14.99

    “He thought his detective brain as good as the criminal’s, which was true. But he fully realized the disadvantage. ‘The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic,’ he said with a sour smile, and lifted his coffee cup to his lips slowly, and put it down very quickly. He had put salt in it.” -G. K. Chesterton, The Innocence of Father Brown, “The Blue Cross”

    In 1911, G. K. Chesterton published this first collection of twelve short stories featuring Father Brown, a priest-turned-detective who combines philosophical and spiritual reasoning with scientific observation to solve crimes. In doing so, Chesterton laid the foundation for future fictional detectives, such as Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Ellery Queen, and Nero Wolfe.

    Unlike other writers of his time, who concocted outlandish crimes and intricate puzzles for the protagonist to solve, Chesterton pioneered the cozy mystery, narrowing the scope of the investigation to limited time, limited space, and a limited number of suspects, with all the clues revealed to the reader as well as to the detective.

    Chesterton is highly regarded as a biting social commentator, and his humorous and insightful comparisons leave readers reeling. These tales are short, easy reads with strong plots, all connected by the clever detective with an above-average understanding of human nature.

  • Man Who Was Thursday

    $14.99

    Part detective story, part surreal thriller, and part social commentary, The Man Who Was Thursday is a masterpiece of literary fiction by the brilliant G. K. Chesterton. The story centers around seven anarchists in turn-of-the-century London who call themselves by the days of the week. Fearing an impending act of terrorism, Gabriel Syme is sent by Scotland Yard to infiltrate their ranks by becoming “Thursday.” Elected undercover into the Central European Council of anarchists, Syme must avoid discovery and save the world from future bombings.

    Beyond the excitement of an elephant chase, duels, elaborate disguises, and a hot-air balloon pursuit through the streets of London, Chesterton is most interested in the battle of ideas. Indeed, his real agenda is to expose the moral relativism and parlor nihilism for the devils he believed them to be in the world of his day. Chesterton’s classic novella tackles anarchy, social order, God, peace, war, religion, and human nature, somehow managing to combine them all into a delightful tale full of biting social commentary that is still relevant today.
