About the Author

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. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film, notably Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall,Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. 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.

In keeping with the theme from Phil's 'The World that Jones Made', the main character is a small boy who is autistic. The view of this character is that he views ALL periods of time in his life (past, present, future) at once. As such, he is forever trapped and un-able to communicate. Unfortunately, one of the most powerful men on Mars is determined to use the boy's talents to get further control over Mars -- and the future. This is one of the most moving tales ever written. As with all of Phil's works, you really understand the characters and what happens to them. All of his works are a reflection of modern society -- cast as 'science fiction'.

A terrifying novel about schizophrenia, right up there with The Man in the High Castle in the sf pantheon.
