  • Logan's Run - William F. Nolan cover


Lastday. It is the 23rd century. Your fate is in the palm of your hand.

This is the brilliant, frightening novel of a furious race against death—of two lovers fleeing from a society that wants to destroy them.

In the 23rd century when the crystal flower imprinted on your palm turns black, your life is over.

This is the story of two people who decide to run for their lives.



Logan was doomed by time. The red flower imprinted on his hand had blinked black and his life was officially over. The Thinker had so decreed. Youth must control society.

Now Logan, a DS man who carried a Gun that could explode any prey, would himself become a Runner, pursued by a Sandman.

Guided by the glow-flicker of the Follower, the Sandman sees his quarry is ahead, sees Logan and the girl. But it is not wise to attempt a chase in these caverns. The Sandman smiles. They are moving through the scrub toward the high grass.

He has them now.

There is nowhere for them to go.


A terrifying novel of the 23rd century.

Now a spectacular film experience from MGM.
