Over a writing career that spanned three decades, Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film; notably: Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
Not a very good book from PKD. A bit like Eye in the sky, but a lot less exciting. Also it's very short. But a lot better than Zap gun.Published 1 month ago by Jackie Chance
PKD never fails to surprise. A MAZE OF DEATH is a hoot. It's a fast read, elegantly constructed, and designed to propel the reader forward to its delicious, off-kilter conclusion. Read morePublished 2 months ago by A reader
I would give this novel 3 1/2 stars. It touches on questions of life, death, religion, human nature, etc. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Paul Militello

if you liked the show LOST you will like this book. A group of people stranded in an unknown place, strange things going on, buildings that move and reappear somewhere else,... Read morePublished 6 months ago by m.robinson

I have been fascinated by Mr. Dick's books in the last few years, and this book is one of his most disturbing works yet so clearly incisive. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Zadius Sky
definitely worth the read.
starts out pretty weird, but has a lot of interesting ideas. I recommend it to all sci-fi and psychology fans
Really readable with Dick's usual slightly odd take on people and events. Unexpected ending. Well worth your time if you like his writing.Published 13 months ago by Gerard
