LATHE OF HEAVEN

URSULA K. LE GUIN    Book Number: 88701    Product format: Paperback

Mild mannered George Orr has an ability with which he can transform the world around him, for his dreams alter reality. He finds the world a less than pleasant place to live - seven billion people jostling for living space and food. George's dreams change realities, yet he has no means of controlling this extraordinary power. His psychiatrist Dr William Haber offers to help. At first sceptical of George's powers, he comes to astonished belief when he sees their effects - initially just to advance his own career, but then gaining confidence, to try to change their overcrowded world into a more attractive place. When he follows ambition to get the better of ethics, George finds himself caught up in a situation of alarming peril. First published in 1971 the novel combines a sheaf of future possibilities including an early evocation of global warming. Beautifully written, jolting in its moral force, this classic of science fiction looks at the practical problems of building utopia. 185pp in SF Masterworks paperback.
