This is one of the early Philip K. Dick stories but it has the classic themes that will be explored in more detail in his later novels. The main character is a common man who sees something wrong with his world, something out of place. What develops is sinister and enough to make anyone question their grip on what is real. If you like disturbing tales from the Twilight Zone you'll find this tale worth your time.

A short and fun read. Free for the Kindle. You might as well download it and spend thirty minutes or less reading it. You just might spend more time than that thinking about it.

I discovered Philip K. Dick rather late in life, but have become a real fan. In the Hanging Stranger, Dick took his dystopian view of the world, mixed it again with science fiction, but has just enough mystery mixed in so that the reader is wondering if aliens were taking over the world or if paranoia is taking over our hero's mind.
And again, Dick makes the story just long enough. There are no boring parts.

I've always loved the movies that were made from Philip K. Dick novels, so I decided to try some of his short stories. I typically do not enjoy short stories, but this one was great. It's pretty short, so there's not much character development (as expected), but the story has an interesting twist or two, and it was fun to read.

THE HANGING STRANGER is another gem from science fiction author Philip K. Dick.

Dick's writing perfectly encapsulates the protagonists sense of paranoia, and like most well told stories, leaves a bit to your own imagination. Highly recommended if you're a sci-fi fan.

This was the second story by Philip K. Dick I read. The first PKD story I read was "The Skull". This story was much better and weirder. It's a good short read. Check it out.

I never liked reading as a child (or adult to be honest). But now that I have a kindle I'm reading voraciously. I came across all these public domain stories, mostly old classic sci-fi's that defined our parent's generation of space and explorations and curiosity. I love, love, love these short stories!
