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' hands, he said, by a route he would not disclose, and many a listener has finished the collection longing for more of the insights they gained from its wisdom.
Much to Lewis' 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, 75 years later, the speech is reproduced in full once more along with a short collection of Lewis' other lesser-known but perennial works.
Many people will have forgotten about the only official sequel that exists to Screwtape; the 75th anniversary of Screwtape's publication is the perfect opportunity to bring this back.
