Short Stories - Good ideas, but little development
on May 18, 2015
This is a collection of short stories from Phillip K. Dick. PKD is a great sci-fi author, but short stories are difficult because you have to tell the whole story in about 20 pages. As such, the stories felt rushed and characters were not developed. A few of these short stories were made into movies (Minority Report, Total Recall), and when seen in that regard, it is obvious how much more development these stories could have had if they were books rather than in the short form as provided.
