“On Stories” — C.S. Lewis

“No physical strangeness of merely spatial distance will realise that idea of otherness which is what we are always trying to grasp in a story about voyaging through space: you must go into another dimension.”

“It is the quality of unexpectedness, not the fact, that delights us.”
