"The Lathe of Heaven" is George Orr's story - a man who dreams things into being, for better or for worse. It is a dark vision and a warning - a fable of power uncontrolled and uncontrollable - a truly prescient and startling view of humanity, and the consequences of God-playing. It is, quite simply, a masterpiece.
Vibrantly repackaged in a stunning new format, this classic science fiction novel offers 'a rare and powerful synthesis of poetry and science, reason and emotion' ('The New York Times'). In the year 2002, George Orr discovers his dreams can--and do--change the world.
