"The Lathe of Heaven"

Back when I was a freshman in high school (around 1980) I happened upon a movie on PBS. It was a sci-fi with really horrible special FX like an early episode of "Dr Who," but I was really drawn into it. The plot was about a person who had his dreams become a new reality and a psychologist who then uses him to change the world with disastrous results. The movie was one of those moments of youth that stick with you. I think there might have even been a 30th anniversary show on PBS a year or so ago which re-kindled my interest. So in honor of my Summer reading program, (which I have been enjoying immensely!) I decided to finally read the book. I was very pleasantly surprised as to how true the movie was to the book as I had remembered it. The movie is now the Netflix queue. I also see there is a horrible adaptation of the book starring James Caan. The reviews are less than stellar. I'll probably put it in the queue as well for the lulz.
