Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin

Lots of raving reviews, for a classic of the genre. Overall a nice book, but nothing that blows (my) your hair back. One of the things I enjoyed was that it was much shorter than I anticipated, for some reason.

And now an awesomely cool quote:

“What nuclear stockpiles remained after the Cislunar War had been taken off and exploded in a series of interesting experiments out in the Asteroid Belt. This building could stand up to anything left on Earth, except perhaps Mount Hood. Or a bad dream.”
