  9. Philip K Dick is known for strange ideas and equally bizarre writing This is not an exception I didn t quite get what he was trying to say in this and sad to say I didn t overly enjoy it due to the unusual and hard to follow ideas and plot He s an author whose books I always greatly like or dislike.

  10. Fueled by prescription amphetamines, and in a burst of creative effort rarely seen before or since in the sci fi field, cult author Philip K Dick, in the period 1963 64, wrote no less than six full length novels His 13th since 1955, The Simulacra, was originally released as an Ace paperback in 1964 with a cover price of 40 cents The book, written in Dick s best middle period style, gives us a pretty whacky look at life in the mid 21st century David Pringle, in his Ultimate Guide to Scienc Fueled by prescription amphetamines, and in a burst of creative effort rarely seen before or since in the sci fi field, cult author Philip K Dick, in the period 1963 64, wrote no less than six full length novels His 13th since 1955, The Simulacra, was originally released as an Ace paperback in 1964 with a cover price of 40 cents The book, written in Dick s best middle period style, gives us a pretty whacky look at life in the mid 21st century David Pringle, in his Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, aptly describes the work as an overpopulated novel which flies off wildly in too many directions, and indeed, readers may need a flowchart to keep track with this one According to my careful count, the book fea...
