Press Release from Open Road Media
Charles Williams was a close friend of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. He is the sometimes overlooked–but incredibly influential–member of their writing group “the Inklings.”
While Williams achieved less commercial success in his day than his friends, T.S. Eliot said of his work: “there is nothing else that is like them or could take their place,” and Williams was credited by Lewis for trailblazing a type of story which mixes “the probable and the marvelous.”
In other words, Charles Williams was perhaps the first author of the supernatural thriller: a genre that has exploded in recent years, drawing on noir mystery, thriller, contemporary fantasy, and religious themes, to form a blend all its own. Preceding the likes of The Da Vinci Code by half a century, Williams’ novel War in Heaven is a provocative, page-turning tale of a race for the Holy Grail.
The novels have been published in e-editions by Open Road Media. Do check them out.
