This growing cult classic is now available in a new edition. It ranks with the best, most imaginative, and most inspirational novels of the genre.

The heroesa young man and womanescape their rough lives on the streets only to be trapped between a parasitic government and an insane satanic netherworld. The only way for the young woman to triumph is to penetrate what cannot be penetrated. The only way for the young man to survive is to become a god. In this futuristic, post-apocalyptic novel, the author convincingly portrays one of the major elements of so-called spiritual fictionan imaginative presentation of self-discovery amid lifes hindrances and limitations, out of time and place.
