The Lathe of Heaven


Ursula Le Guin referred to this novel as her "homage a Philip K. Dick." George Orr is a draftsman whose dreams are changing reality. He takes speed to stay awake, and barbiturates so that when he does fall asleep he won't dream. But ultimately he consults with Dr. Haber, a psychiatrist who--delighted at George's talent--hooks him up to a machine and sets about reforming the world. What Dr. Haber does not consider is that when one part of reality is changed--no matter how lofty the goal--other parts must also change as a consequence. When George awakens, he fights Haber's attempts to manipulate him. Nominated for the Hugo and Nebula awards, this novel was the winner of the 1972 Locus Poll Award. Hide synopsis
