First edition. "Awkward mixture of romance and spiritualism in which a sleeper awakes in 1992 to find that 'applied Christianity' and co-op trusts have changed Brooklyn into a suburban paradise where the city owns most of the land and inventors are eulogized (poets and novelists are extinct)." - Roemer, The Obsolete Necessity, p. 196.
