C. S. Lewis "happened to pick up a copy of Phantastes by George MacDonald. After only a few pages, he [Lewis] knew at once that he was in for a 'great literary experience'. … George MacDonald was to be so important a figure in Lewis' life, and Phantastes such a great milestone in his inner journey…". C.S Lewis is quoted saying "All was changed… I had not the faintest notion of what I had let myself in for by buying Phantastes" (Wilson p. 45)
