I loved The Lathe of Heaven when I saw it on PBS back in the day. I recently rented it from the library. While it still seemed good to me, it didn't seem as great as I remembered it being. By far the best way to experience this story is to read it.

Well done to the daffy. Actually, IMDb has "The Lathe of Heaven" for the 1980 version, and lacks the "The" in the subsequent version.

I too enjoyed it 'way back then. JorJor (George Orr) does as well as he can with his "gift"-- better than I would, I think.

I was trying to spell Nena with an i and having a six letter word wasn't fair.

When did the phrase, 'back in the day' start infecting our language?

jeremy: If you can't take the pressure of associating with really superior people and handling extremely difficult intellectual challenges, then this is not the place for you.

Nyah nyah!! Wussy!

Embarassed

Marilyn -

I agree that LeGuin's book is terrific. I couldn't make it through The Left Hand Of Darkness, though.

Quite obviously, it started back in the day.

You're welcome, censored. I wasn't the best moderator this time, but I had the best participants!
