The Mezentian Gate Author:E.R. Eddison C.S. Lewis on the subject of E.R. Eddison "It is very rarely that a middle-aged man finds an author who gives him the sense of having opened a door on wonder. One had thought those days were past. Eddison's heroic romances disproved it. In a word, his books are works, first and foremost, of art."
