Rosie Perera:

I hope it's a big bundle with everything!

If we can judge by the books released today on Olive Tree, the CS Lewis collection might contain

  • Mere Christianity
  • The Screwtape Letters
  • The Great Divorce
  • Miracles
  • The Problem of Pain
  • The Weight of Glory: And Other Addresses
  • The Abolition of Man
  • A Grief Observed
  • George MacDonald: An Anthology 365 Readings
  • Yours, Jack
  • A Year with C.S. Lewis
  • A Year with Aslan

IF it ever makes it to Pre-Pub.

Ooh, that would be nice, and that does look like a sign that Aslan is on the move. But ouch! Faithlife, why did you let the other guys beat you to the punch?

Rosie you already know the answer.... It hasn't gone through pre-pub so they can get it under contract!!!

But I meant they haven't even LISTED it in pre-pub yet. They have to get permission from the publisher before they can list it in pre-pub. But the teaser they posted on FB tells me they've probably already secured that permission. So what's taking them so long getting it up in pre-pub so that we can order it, when their competitor already has it listed? I don't know whether OT's listing is a pre-order kind of thing (doesn't look like it) or if it's already ready for download.

My post was just a friendly elbow jab to my friends at Faithlife to get a move on and not let the competition "eat their shorts" (a phrase we used to use at Microsoft).

I take it they're not going to include the Narnia books?

That's what many of us are wondering. I also wonder why it took so long to negotiate something with the publishers but that we will probably never know.

All this about Lewis's books makes me wonder if in the future there will ever be books which make it to the Public Domain in less than 150 years?

Corporate greed among large publishers who will buy up small publishers for their back catalogue means  that copyrights will be renewed until a generation after the paying market has been milked dry. With e-publishing meaning that publishers no longer require warehouse space there will be no constraints.

We probably live in what will in future be regarded as a golden age of publishing, when previously out-of-print books were made available as e-books to readers at reasonable prices.

BTW I would love to have many books from the Geoffrey Bles back catalogue, including the Works of C.S. Lewis. How about the J.B. Phillips New Testament?

I'm hoping these C. S. Lewis titles will be compatible with the "Send to Kindle" functionality.  I can't seem to find a rhyme or reason for why some books are/aren't able to be sent to the Kindle, so in my mind that means that there's at least a chance that these Lewis titles might be transferrable.

Nope, these currently 6 are about Lewis rather than by him.

Logos.com has a teaser on the site, but you have to provide email to know when CSL collection is live. I will trust this forum to keep me informed.

Will that help to get it into production faster? Big Smile

I'm pleased with how comprehensive it is, though there are a few titles that it's missing which I would have liked to see. Hopefully there will be a C.S. Lewis Collection Upgrade at some point that includes these:

And more collections of his essays (though there is no doubt some overlap among all of these and the ones they already have):

I'd also like to see them get these reference works on Lewis:

The C.S. Lewis Readers' Encyclopedia

The C.S. Lewis Index: A Comprehensive Guide To Lewis's Writings and Ideas

And lots more secondary literature about him and his works.

Incidentally, I recently discovered that Lewis wrote an Introduction to Athanasius's On the Incarnation which is available online.
