The Lathe of Heaven: Now in eBook!

As we never tire of reminding you, we recently completed a comprehensive agreement to publish almost all of Ursula K. Le Guin’s SF & Fantasy work, including eBook editions of the great Earthsea cycle and adding eBook rights to our existing SF Masterworks The Dispossessed and The Lathe of Heaven.

We’re delighted to announce that the eBook edition of the latter is now available – so get thee to thy ereader and enjoy!

Shortlisted for both the Hugo and Nebula Awards in 1972, our current SFMasterwork of the Week is Grand Master Ursula K. Le Guin‘s The Lathe of Heaven.

Through his dreams, George Orr can make alternate realities real

George Orr is a mild and unremarkable man who finds the world a less than pleasant place to live: seven billion people jostle for living space and food. But George dreams dreams which do in fact change reality ? and he has no means of controlling this extraordinary power.

Psychiatrist Dr William Haber offers to help. At first sceptical of George?s powers, he comes to astonished belief. When he allows ambition to get the better of ethics, George finds himself caught up in a situation of alarming peril.


The Lathe of Heaven is available as an SF Masterworks paperback and – now! – a Gateway eBook.  You can find more of Ursula K. Le Guin’s work via her Author page on the Gateway website and  read more about her in her entry at The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
