Star Maker

by Olaf Stapledon
Release date: 1937
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

One moment a man sits on a suburban hill. The next he is whirling through the firmament. Street lamps become blinding stars and rushing grains swell into planets.

Like H. G. Wells's time traveller, he visits many worlds, often at times of political and social crisis... Like the 'Other Earth' from which he escapes with the quasi-human Bvaltu just before technological change sweeps and annihilates the planet... Like the worlds of the Nautiloids, men-cum-fish-cum-boats, and the Plant men, vast mobile herbs...

As they search up and down time and space for the Star Maker behind the cosmos, the two travellers are joined by others, to develop into a strange mental community, both 'I' and 'We', reacting multi-dimensionally to a mind-spinning range of experiences.
