    Darned Publishers...

    The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is EXACTLY the same as The Collected Short Stories of Phillip K. Dick: The Short Happy Life of the Brown Oxford! This warning is really the only reason I wrote this review. (You don't want to find that out by buying it first and being disappointed because you already own the others in the collection.) Many of the novels he wrote were based on his short stories in this book (and his other books of collected short stories). Fascinating reading for the open-minded science fiction lover who enjoys originality. What else can I say? Phillip K. Dick is a genius - if you read him, you'll love him. No need to explain further.
