I read this book a hundred years ago when I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. I was interested in science fiction books in those days, but most of what I read didn't seem interesting enough...and some other sci fi books were maybe too advanced for me.

But "Planet of the Dreamers" was just right. After all these years I still have mental images from this book. I loved it.

And little did I know that, years later, John D. McDonald would go on to write some very readable and enjoyable detective books.

About the cover: If this cover had been on the edition of the book I read as a kid, I probably would never had picked it up. It's ridiculous, and I don't know what the cover image has to do with the book. The one I had was some old "Science fiction Book Club" edition...probably was just a plain, hardback cover.

"Planet of the Dreamers" is old-style science fiction. No special effects. No weird super characters. Just thought-provoking ideas. (At least for my 12-year-old brain at the time.)
