Charles Walter Stansby Williams was a British poet, novelist, playwright, theologian, literary critic, and member of the Inklings. Although chiefly remembered as a novelist, Williams also published poetry, works of literary criticism, theology, drama, history, biography, and a voluminous number of book reviews. Some of his best known novels are War in Heaven, Descent into Hell, and All Hallows’ Eve.
“He is writing that sort of book in which we begin by saying, let us suppose that this everyday world were at some one point invaded by the marvelous”— C.S. Lewis on Charles Williams’s novels
