Selected Stories of Philip K. Dick

selected stories of Philip K DickSelected Stories of Philip K. Dick, 5/5

When I found out that the movies Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, Paycheck, Next, and The Adjustment Bureau were all based on the writings of one man, I was metaphorically gobsmacked.  When I reached the final line of the first short story in this collection, Beyond Lies the Wub, I was literally gobsmacked.  These twisty, dystopian sci-fi plots are like nothing else I’ve encountered in literature.  Dick is a genre-definer with an unorthodox mind and I am definitely going to read more of his work.

N.B. Most of these stories are completely clean.  The only ones I wouldn’t feel comfortable recommending to young people are “A Game of Unchance,” “We Can Remember it for You Wholesale,” “Faith of our Fathers,” and “A Little Something for Us Tempunauts.”
