Description

A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series.


Investigating spiritual questions through science fiction imagery, these stories explore the boundaries of human consciousness as they entertain such themes as multiple realities, creating life, and man's relationship to God.


This collection presents seven outstanding examples of Dick's shorter works: "Colony" read by Tom Weiner, "Upon the Dull Earth" read by William Hughes, "The Short Happy Life of the Brown Oxford" read by Tom Weiner, "Faith of Our Fathers" read by Paul Michael Garcia, "The Days of Perky Pat" read by Malcolm Hillgartner, "The Variable Man" read by Tom Weiner, and "I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon" read by Anthony Heald.
