Shadrach in the Furnace - Bison Frontiers of Imagination (Paperback)Robert Silverberg (author)
- We can order this
Shadrach makes the unsettling discovery that it is his body that is to be used. His friends beg him to flee, but he refuses to panic. Instead, and with startling composure, he evolves a dangerous plan that could change the face of the earth or, if it backfires, mean the end of life.
Shadrach in the Furnace is at once a broad, sweeping novel and a harsh, abrasive, irreverent book about a life-and-death battle between two titans-one the epitome of evil, the other a paragon of idealism-in a society pushed to extremes.

"A child of its times yet still relevant today and, above all, brilliantly entertaining and occasionally darkly poetic, this book is a winner all-around. Kudos to Bison Books for bringing this neglected classic back into print!"-Jim Lee, Tales of the Talisman -- Jim Lee * Tales of the Talisman *
