Light beyond all shadow : religious experience in Tolkien's work ( Book )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
Organized religion is notably absent from J.R.R. Tolkien's Secondary Universe, despite the author's own deep Catholic faith. Essays in Light Beyond All Shadow explore this anomaly across the full sweep of Tolkien's legendarium, plus Peter Jackson's film trilogy. Contributors examine the sources and style of Tolkien's Catholic imagination, from Biblical typology to personal relationships. Although his imagery has both Christian and pagan resonances, Tolkien's "comedy of grace" is neither occult nor Manichaean. Creation reveals the Creator, Light stands for sub-creative power diffusing from the Deity. Water, music, poetry, and the life-giving Feminine are signposts of transcendence. As in its earlier companion volume, The Ring and the Cross, Light Beyond All Shadow illuminates Tolkien beautifully. -- Back cover

Dreamrider by Sandra Miesel( Book )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
The dreams were driving her mad -- or perhaps they were proof of her madness. They came without warning, not only during sleep, but whenever the glitter of a shiny surface caught her eye, whenever her hold on reality chanced to slip. She dared not tell her doctor or her university colleagues -- in the orderly, controlled world of the next century she'd be committed to a PSI ward for such an admission. It seemed the only way to sanity lay through the gates of the dream, and to help the Shamans from another future -- the old and gentle Kara, and the inhuman Lute. They promised to teach her mastery of her dream-rides through a mutlitude of futures and alternative pasts, but they did not tell her at what cost. . .

Eye in the sky by Philip K Dick( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Caught in a laboratory accident at the Belmont Bevatron, Jack Hamiliton and his seven companions awaken to find themselves trapped in a bizarre fantasy world dominated by instant plagues, immediate damnation, and death to all perceived infidels, and must make their way through the perils of this world and three other fantastical universes to make their way home. While sightseeing at the Belmont Bevatron, Jack Hamilton, along with seven others, is caught in a lab accident. When he regains consciousness, he is in a fantasy world of Old Testament morality gone awry, a place of instant plagues, immediate damnations, and death to all perceived infidels. Hamilton figures out how he and his compatriots can escape this world and return to their own, but first they must pass through three other vividly fantastical worlds, each more perilous and hilarious than the one before. Winner of both the Hugo and John W. Campbell awards for best novel, widely regarded as the premiere science fiction writer of his day, and the object of cult-like adoration from his legions of fans, Philip K. Dick has come to be seen in a literary light that defies classification in much the same way as Borges and Calvino. With breathtaking insight, he utilizes vividly unfamiliar worlds to evoke the hauntingly and hilariously familiar in our society and ourselves
