Quando C.S. Lewis – uno dei due più celebri membri del gruppo degli Inklings di Oxford (l’altro era Tolkien) – si lanciò, nel corso degli anni Trenta, nella azzardata impresa di scrivere una trilogia di fantascienza metafisica, il mondo non era ancora invaso da miriadi di racconti di guerre stellari. Lewis li anticipò – ma subito andò ben oltre. Di fatto, ciò che più gli stava a cuore non era la creazione di remoti scenari cosmici (nella quale peraltro era maestro), ma qualcosa di più avventuroso: narrare una nuova sfida fra Bene e Male in cui il Bene riesca a vincere in modo plausibile. E qui, nella descrizione della lotta fra l’eroe Ransom e il feroce Weston che vuole corrompere l’innocenza del pianeta abitato dalla Signora Verde, l’acume del teologo si incontra felicemente con l’estro del romanziere. Come in Tolkien, anche in C.S. Lewis la sapienza fabulatoria ha innanzitutto la funzione di svelarci una impalcatura etica e metafisica estremamente salda.

Scottish novelist David Lindsay (1876-1945) was born to a middle-class Calvinist family, forced by poverty to work as an insurance clerk instead of attending university, and at the age of forty took up the cause and worked his way to Corporal of the Royal Army Pay Corps in World War I. After the war he moved to Cornwall with his wife and began writing full-time, publishing his first novel, "A Voyage to Arcturus," in 1920. Although the science fiction novel initially sold less than six hundred copies, it has come to be known as a major "underground" novel of the 20th century, and heavily influenced C.S. Lewis's "Out of the Silent Planet." The story is set at Tormance, an imaginary planet orbiting Arcturus, where an adventurous Scot named Muskall has travelled and where he encounters myriad characters and lands that reflect Lindsay's critique of various philosophical systems.

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead. So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay. When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn't expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home. But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas's life. Anna Dressed in Blood is a 2011 Kirkus Best Teen Books of the Year title. One of NPR's Top 5 Young Adult Novels of 2011. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
