Philip Jose Farmer by A WORLD GONE BERSERK Every seven years, the placid planet of DanteтАЩs Joy becomes a waking nightmare of death, deformity, and madness. To escape, the populace has the choice of SleepingтАФlying drugged in their tomblike housesтАФor taking the ChanceтАФstaying awake and going abroad while their world goes berserk. They become what their innermost longings dictate, whether it be a beast locked in the vilest bowels of depravity, or a supreme being raised to the flowering serenity of truth and tight. Thousands are mutilated, killed, transformed into monstrous things.

Night of Light was what I would call a "detailed outline" for a story. Which of course will be blasphemy to Farmer fans! But this book definitely felt typical of a fault I sometimes find in "earlier SF:" that the ideas are so interesting that the actual writing gets a pass, and doesn't have to be tht good. I find that's typical of a lot of the earlier science fiction novels, though since this one was published in 1972, it probably shouldn't fall into that category. But it did feel, all the way through, that we were really being told the main character's story more as observers, than really getting into his mind and emotions. One person found this helpful.
