Dick, Philip K.  
Galactic Pot-Healer
Sometimes even gods need help - in this case, an alien creature known as The Glimmung, which looks alternately like a flaming wheel, a teenage girl, and a swirling mass of ocean life. In order to raise a sunken city, he summons beings from across the galaxy. Joe Fernwright is one of those summoned, needed for his skills at repairing broken ceramics. But from the moment Joe arrives on Plowman's Planet, things start to go awry.
