Cool!  C.S.Lewis' Space Trilogy!

Yup! One of my all time favorite series of books. :)

This is a nice visualization of this creature. It's a little more overtly otter-like than I pictured it (I had a hard time getting a sleek Chewbacca out of my head, ha ha), but it's quite good, and much more pleasant to look at than what I imagined, ha.

Thanks again! If I were to create any more illustrations with the hross, I'd make their faces a bit more alien and exotic, but I do like how the body-type came out!

Yeah, definitely, the body looks pretty much how I pictured it, muscular but also pretty sinewy and sleek. I imagine seeing them in motion they would be pretty slithery and slippery though, ha ha.

Found this doing a Google Images search for "hrossa". Wonderful! Love his posture, and the obvious strength in his muscles! Not a creature to mess with, but clearly intelligent and reasonable.

Thanks, I appreciate it! Glad to see another Space Trilogy fan, there aren't too many of them. :)

There are not.  I have looked for it at the book stores, but you can't find it.  I suspect that it's purposely not published because it's a Christian send up of H.G. Wells works.

I've had some luck in used bookstores obtaining older copies, but I agree. It's probably the theological elements that, while are my favorite parts of the books, are keeping them from gaining more widespread attention and are unfortunately dismissed for that very reason.

Whether you believe in his philosophies or not, that guy was a great world builder.

Oh definitely, he knew how to tell a story brilliantly, always imaginative, thoughtful and intelligent. He strikes me as one who is always thinking.

That he knew. More than an excellent storyteller, he knew how to make a point — in the case, about the Paradise lost.

What I also like about him is that he makes a point more than once, gives tons of examples, just to make sure the reader totally understands.
