Plot introductionEdit

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.


ReceptionEdit

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]
