Flinx's Folly by Alan Dean Foster

Description: Series hero Flinx's empathic powers go out of control, and then there is a massive blackout. After escaping hospital workers, who want to further test his decidedly strange brain, Flinx realizes he needs to tell someone about his strange dreams, not to mention the mental power surges and the worsening of the headaches that come with his empathy. There is only one person he trusts enough, his ex-lover Clarity. Visiting her on New Riviera, he discovers that his dreams are, for lack of a better term, contagious. Those dreams, which involve a great, destructive evil traveling toward occupied space, also seem to cause his power surges. While with Clarity, he unintentionally manages to kill all nearby plants and cause her to see something of what he sees. Between the mad jealousy of Clarity's almost-but-not-quite fiance and the appearance of bizarre death cultists, Flinx has his work cut out for him. Despite its nasty cliffhanger ending, a fast, light, adventurous afternoon read.
