In this wildly disorienting funhouse of a novel, populated by God-like—or perhaps Satanic—takeover artists and corporate psychics, Philip K. Dick explores mysteries that were once the property of St. Paul and Aquinas. His wit, compassion, and knife-edged irony make The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch moving as well as genuinely visionary.

Over a writing career that spanned three decades, PHILIP K. DICK(1928–1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power.

The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.

Have been reading much of PKD lately - incredible ideas in his work.

...and I loved every page of it. This is one of my favorite books. Although I did not really understand everything that was going on the first time I read it. I re-read it recently and once I realized that I should take everything at face value it suddenly made a lot of sense to me. Although Dick was not particularly fond of this book I think it is one of his best, possibly even better than Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
