Author Francis Spufford has written a book that takes place in the time gap between two installments of the Chronicles of Narnia.

Advance readers — some of them fellow authors — have rave reviews about how he’s captured C.S. Lewis’s voice.

But as things stand right now, Spufford’s The Stone Table probably won’t be formally published until 2034.

That’s when the copyright for the original Narnia novels expires, meaning that Spufford wouldn’t need permission from the Lewis estate to publish his work.

The Guardian, which reported this story, says that Spufford has reached out to the estate but hasn’t received a response.
