There Are Doors

by Gene Wolfe
Release date: 1988
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Locus Award nominee 1989.

To step from world to world...

Mr Green, a man from our world, falls in love with Lara. Soon after their mutual declaration of desire she disappears, leaving him an intriguing note. He pursues her, and finds himself in a different universe, where Lara may just be a goddess.

Mr Green's travels result in him being held in hospital and chased by the police as a dangerous criminal as he moves from one reality to the next. None of them seem to lead him to Lara, but he clings tenaciously to his dream...

Following Soldier in the Mist and The Urth of the New Sun, Gene Wolfe has written one of his most singular and unusual books, which will linger in the mind long after the final page is turned.
