Mood organs. Scramble suits. Poison tongue darts. Philip K. Dick may have invented more wildly imaginative creations per novel than any of his peers. An eccentric whose mind danced on the blurry edge between illusion and reality, madness and metaphysics, he produced a body of work that no sci-fi reader should ignore. Laced w/ humor, compassion, irony and paranoia, the four novels in Counterfeit Unrealities are among his best work.
Hardbound. Inaugural volume in the Historical Dictionaries of Literature and the Arts series. This reference tracks the development of speculative fiction influenced by the advancement of science and the idea of progress from the eighteenth century to the present day.
