Other Comments: In this title, Ransom travels again, this time to Venus, to witness the temptation of Venus' parallel of Eve. (Perelandra has also been published under the title, Voyage to Venus.) Dr. Weston also makes the voyage, to act as the tempter. While Lewis' conception of Venus is even more fanciful than his description of Mars (and, alas, inaccurate, for Lewis' depiction of Venus would make it the tourist attraction in the solar system), the science fictional elements are not quite so much to the fore in this story, and theology plays a more central role. Not that this book is a tract in the guise of a story, but Ransom's interaction with the other characters gives rise to much dialogue on the nature of God, good, evil, and temptation. – Greg Slade
