The Heaven Makers (1968) is a science fiction novel by American writer Frank Herbert. It was originally serialized in Amazing Stories magazine in 1967.

Plot introduction[edit]

The Heaven Makers is set on contemporary Earth with one difference: that we are being watched and manipulated by aliens for their viewing pleasure; the plot focuses on several humans whose lives are changed by the aliens, and an alien observer investigating the morality of these changes.


Reception[edit]

David Pringle rated The Heaven Makers one star out of four. Pringle added "the sex in the book is all male wish-fulfillment; the politics and science are childish". [2]
