The story - new to me - that made the greatest impression, `Tony and the Beetles' projected the anti-colonial movement of the 1950s onto the galactic plane, with the `beetles' playing the role of a colonised people encouraged by the imminent defeat of their human overlords to throw off their shackles. The collection ends with an entrancing tale of an Eden in which PK Dick makes allusions to Homer's `Odyssey'.
A good kindle presentation with links for individual stories.
Cost me 34p!Brilliant.
All the stories are good,obviously some better than others, and I know that I read many of them in my youth....but great to read again.
I think the story titled 'Second Variety' was made into a film called,I think,'Screamers' with Peter Weller.
Anyway,a real bargain and therein lies the wub.
also, living in hope that a movie adaption will someday be a worthy salute to his talents ('blade runner still runs as closest)
If you have never heard of him before (other than maybee as the guy that wrote the book "Blade Runner" is based on) then I envy you, for you are goign to experience the joy of discovering one of the most brilliant minds behind sci-fi and general "out-of-the-box thinking" that has ever existed.
This collection is a great place to start

Dated, but still thought provoking stories. P.K. Dick writes intriguing and questioning stories, usually with a twist in their ending.Published 3 months ago by Kashubiantyke
It has been many years since I read any of these stories. They are very primitive, really like cowboys and Indians brought up to date. But badly.Published 5 months ago by Pat
There is a very good reason so many of this author's stories have been used by Hollywood, he can pack as much into a short story, as some authors manage in a trilogy.Published 7 months ago by P. Batty
