THE FAR REALITY

Consul books paperback, 1963. Cover artist uncredited.

"The companion novel to Tomorrow and Tomorrow, this book, under the deft touch of Lewis Padgett, makes fascinating and exciting reading. It concerns Robert Cameron, trained in applied psychology, who finds himself being driven insane by a strange, unfathomable force. As an experienced psychometrician he fights the terrifying hallucinations (a doorknob opens a blue eye and looks at him). He knows his job is vital. America, dug into great, shielded cavern-cities, has been at war for decades with the European Falangists. Now a new Falangist weapon has appeared to break the stalemate. And it is up to Cameron to find the man to provide the solution - before his own mind collapses under the weird and terrible stresses!"
