Writing That Transcends Time And Space

"Their hearts leaped and a wild hope rose within them. 'There was a real railway accident,' said Aslan, softly. 'Your father and mother and all of you are---as you used to call it in the Shadow Lands---dead. The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.'

And as he spoke, he no longer looked to them like a lion; but things began to happen after that that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us, this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story, which no one on earth has ever read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better then the one before."

C. S. Lewis, from The Last Battle
