In addition to his forty-four novels, the legendary Philip K. Dick (1928–82) was a prolific writer of short stories whose fantasies formed the basis for Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, and other popular films. This original anthology features eleven of his highly inventive short stories and novellas, which originally appeared in pulp magazines of the early 1950s such as Worlds of Science Fiction, Orbit, Beyond Fiction, and Startling Stories.
Riveting tales include a satire of the 1950s obsession with bomb shelters, "Foster, You're Dead," which skewers both consumerism and Cold War anxiety; "Prominent Author," concerning a crack in the space/time continuum that allows an ordinary man to achieve a lasting literary legacy; "Upon the Dull Earth," in which a girl begins by conjuring up angelic-seeming creatures and ends by transforming the nature of reality; and "Adjustment Team," the inspiration for the film The Adjustment Bureau. Additional selections include "Human Is," "Progeny," "Meddler," "The Turning Wheel," "Shell Game," "Exhibit Piece," and "Small Town."
