The magnum opus of a master of speculative fiction that established Yoshio Aramaki as a leading representative of the genre, The Sacred Era is part post-apocalyptic world, part faux-religious tract, and part dream narrative. Through the main character's journey into inner and outer space, the novel translates the substance of religious and mythic texts into the language of science fiction.
