As a fan of the work of Philip K Dick (1928-1982), I love this complete collection of his short stories (of which this is the fifth of 5 volumes).
The stories in this volume were written between 1963 and 1981 (shortly before his death). As with any collection of this kind, where all an authors short stories are collected, you get something of a mixed bag. However, to my mind even when PKD is not at his best he is still well worth a read (and at his best he is among the very best). As well as the stories you get some interesting introductory material and some helpful notes.
The stories contained in this volume are:
"The Little Black Box"
"The War with the Fnools"
"A Game of Unchance"
"A Terran Odyssey"
"Your Appointment Will Be Yesterday"
"We Can Remember It for You Wholesale" (which the movie Total Recall was based on)
"Not By Its Cover"
"Faith of Our Fathers"
"The Story to End All Stories for Harlan Ellison's Anthology Dangerous Visions"
"The Electric Ant"
"Cadbury, the Beaver Who Lacked"
"A Little Something for Us Tempunauts"
"The Eye of the Sibyl"
"The Day Mr. Computer Fell out of its Tree"
"The Exit Door Leads In"
"Chains of Air, Web of Aether"
"Strange Memories of Death"
"I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon"
"The Alien Mind"

If you are new to Philip K Dick's work I would also recommend the novels (which generally seem to be regarded as among his best):Ubik (S.F. Masterworks)The Man In The High Castle (S.F. Masterworks)The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (S.F. Masterworks)Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said (S.F. Masterworks)Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?: The novel which became 'Blade Runner' (S.F. Masterworks)
That said, as with the short stories, though some of PKD's works are better than others, to my mind they are all well worth reading.
Also of interest may be Divine Invasions: A Life of Philip K. Dick (Gollancz S.F.)
