Synopsis

A daring novel of mankind's strange and startling destiny. . .

Here is a novel to equal Arthur C. Clarke's great work, Childhood's End. It tells with frightening clarity of a desperately stricken Earth - wracked by overpopulation and plagued by famine and despair.

It tells, too, of a new breed of men and women - twenty-first century lotus eaters caught up in a mysterious euphoria which will ultimately threaten all life on this planet: the drug-induced world of 'happy dreams'. Do these 'happy dreamers' herald the end of the human race - or the next extraordinary step in the evolution of Man?


First published in 1963.
