SYNOPSIS:  “The 22nd century, 150 years after the Dust War destroyed America’s Mid-West, and much else besides.  California is a last outpost for survival and reclamation during a long epidemic of all-purpose despair.

Tom O’Bedlam, an apparent madman, prey since childhood to visions which seem to confirm ‘Tumbonde’, goes even further.  He can, he will, help others to make the Crossing.  If the world doesn’t go too mad too soon.  If well-meaning ‘rationalists’ don’t lock him away…”
