      Williams' mind must have been full of fireflies. He is a writer of the
      short burst of intense light -- one sentence or paragraph -- which he then
      chases with long darkness. The genius moments are higher than Lewis,
      but the clunkers are so bad Lewis could not have written them in the

      The steadiest work, I think, is The Figure of Beatrice.

      Ah, that's a really good way of putting it. Williams is very inconsistent.

      That Hideous Strength is 10x better than any of William's supernatural
      novels if for no other reason than it's good the whole way through - not
      just for a passing moment here and there. He has his moments though.
