    Interesting Stories

    These three stories by Phillip K. Dick are intriguing and engaging stories. They call to mind stories by Ray Bradbury. The tone and themes are very similar. I enjoyed these stories and gladly recommend them for rhe sci-fi enthusiast.

    Great for the imagination

    The three short stories included are wonderful to stimulate the imagination. They really get you thinking about humankind. The only downfall is the occasional cuss word.
