This non-Orthodox writer of
supernatural horror novels,
a friend of
C. S. Lewis, has often been cited for the implicitly
Orthodox worldview of some of his fiction, and in particular
for his use of the patristic idea of co-inherency.
(His description of the Thames as seen with the eye of the soul
was repeatedly mentioned by the late
Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh.)
Less accessible than his fiction is
his "Arthurian" poetry, set in late antiquity,
and featuring an elaborate allegory of the Christian Roman Empire
as a person.
