The Maker of Universes - first in the "World of Tiers" series by Philip Jose Farmer. When Robert Wolff found a strange horn in an empty house, he held the key to a different universe. To blow that horn would open up a door through space-time and permit entry to a cosmos whose dimensions and laws were not those known by our starry galaxy. For that other universe was a place of tiers, world upon world piled upon each other like the landings of a sky-piercing mountain. The one who blew that horn would ascend those steps, from creation to creation, until he would come face to face with the being whose brain-child it was. But what if that maker of universes was a madman? Or an impostor? Or a super-criminal hiding from the wrath of his own superiors?
