The Dream of Gotama

£8.99

Product description

"This is the story of Gotama Mann, a politician and scientist who drops off to sleep on a plane and encounters alien 'dimensionauts'. Shocked by his planet's primitive hedonism, they resolve to introduce some new ideas - at whatever cost.
A series of questions, conundrums and ideas about the future of humanity follow, spiced with a welcome sense of humour.
I'd say this book is well worth a look if only for the writer's own extraordinary paintings, with which the book is lavishly illustrated. But the story is intriguing in its own right, and bubbling with new technologies and challenging new ideas. "

Book and dust jacket in very good condition with clean pages throughout and securely bound.Printed in 2002.
