Will Barrent finds himself shipped to a prison planet with a byzantine social structure promoting the worship of evil, and the use of murder and drugs as tools to gain status and prestige.

“Reality is a dream. George Orr is the dreamer. George’s dreams change the world. In the hands of a power-mad psychiatrist George is forced to dream… forever seeking utopia…”

A heavily philosophical utopian SF novel with a distinct underlying theme: if someone/something is gullible or naive, it’s one of the only likable characters in the book. A fatalistic experiment that is largely hit-or-miss, though one riddled with complexity and creativity.
