Interior text

Pandora's Box: Century XXI

If wishes would only come true ... how often has every human being thought that? How wonderful life would be if only we could have everything we ever dreamed of!

But the man who invented the dream-machine turned out to be the worst enemy humanity ever encountered! The dream became as real as the reality — and yet remained a figment of the imagination. And thereby the very foundations of civilization were undermined. Why strive — when you could get it all without effort?

REALITY FORBIDDEN is the unusual novel of what came afterwards. Of the world in which only the most rigid of terror kept the cities standing, and of the man who dared to escape that world, to find the last place on Earth where dreaming was not prohibited, and where one could not only have one's cake, but eat it as well!
