For the first time in eBook edition comes a science fiction classic that is at once eerie and prescient, wildly entertaining and ferociously intelligent.  
Winner of the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award, the Locus Award, and one of the most acclaimed writers in science fiction, Ursula Le Guin’s classic novel The Lathe of Heaven imagines a world in which one man’s dreams can change all of our realities.

In a world beset by climate instability and overpopulation, George Orr discovers that his dreams have the power to alter reality. Upon waking, the world he knew has become a strange, barely recognizable place, where only George has the clear memory of how it was before. He seeks counseling from Dr. William Haber, a psychiatrist who immediately understands how powerful a weapon George wields. Soon, George is a pawn in Haber’s dangerous game, where the fate of humanity grows more imperiled with every waking hour.

As relevant to our current world as it was when it won the Locus Award, Ursula Le Guin’s novel is a true classic, at once eerie and prescient, wildly entertaining and ferociously intelligent.

How much courage do you need to survive betrayal, war, and loss?



Adara and her friends infiltrate Agro headquarters ready to free the Meeks. With only a handful of allies by their side, Adara soon learns that these mysterious adversaries are more powerful and cruel than she ever imagined. Despite overwhelming odds, she has to summon up all of her strength and power to destroy the Agro army.

As filthy battles ensue and loved ones perish, Adara must sing The Song of Forgetfulness one last time if she is to save not only the Meeks, but all the folk of NotSoGreatBritAlbion, from a life of slavery and despair.

But there is a traitor trying to sabotage their mission. Someone who is in league with the enemy. Someone close to home. 

‘Exciting, fun, unique, and creative. The author is truly a gifted writer to be able to whip up something like this. Easily a must-read for dystopian adventure lovers out there.’

It’s a sickly wind that blows. Ash black and full of menace. Agros. Lots of them

Feet pounding, shaking the earth, drawing closer.

An unseen enemy equipped with tech we know nowt about.

All I have is my voice and the power of friendship.

I must act now before the Agro menace snuffs us out for good.

If you enjoy reading books that are different, have a strong storyline with offbeat characters, and quirky language, then you will love A Silence Heard. It is a great addition to the dystopian/Sci-fi/cli-fi tradition of authors such as, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Bella Forest, Patrick Ness, Ursula K. Le Guin and Margaret Atwood.
