This is an amalgam of his best stories. Some of these I read before (his earlier stories), but most were new to me. Dick had a clever way of writing that draws you in. Yes, his Science Fiction writing is not for everyone. What I find fascinating is the ability he had to foresee things.
Much of his writings take place far in the future so, if his predictions come to pass, we have a lot ahead of us as a species. Will we reach the stars? Will AI take control? Will Androids become a fixture of our lives? When we do meet other species, will we work together or will there be interstellar war?
I thoroughly enjoy his writings. Some are almost believable while others are pretty far out there. But they provide a great escape from our mundane lives as we open our imaginations to the possibilities.
Stories included in this collection include: Beyond the Door; Beyond Lies the Wub; The Crystal Crypt; The Defenders; The Gun; The Skull; The Eyes Have it; Second Variety; The Variable Man; Mr. Spaceship; Piper in the Woods. Every story is great. I espwcially recommend: Second Variety; The Variable Man; The Defenders; The Skull; Beyond Lies the Wub; and Pioer in the Woods. As long as you, the reader, have a reasonable amount of imagination, can comprehend the nuance of meanings of written English words, and have enough experience to not take American politics, society, or yourself real serious, I garuantee you will enjoy this colletion!
Halcyon does their usual good job here-- the Kindle book has a linked table of contents and few to no typos.
