    A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call "reality."

    James says: "Reality questioned brilliantly!"

    Overall

    Philip K Dick is fantastic at weaving stories about what is reality, or what is living and what is not. These stories hit so many notes. Autofac - World is ended for humans (or is it?), and now the factories battle for resources. (Repeating why we go to war?) Electric Ant - Wow, are any of us really alive? Or just some experiment? Who knows! He will blow your mind.

    The previous individual's review is horribly inaccurate. True, it's written long ago, but the ideas behind these stories each could make an episode of OUTER LIMITS, or even a Blockbuster Movie. Listen to the stories with an open mind, and understand what his reasons for writing them were.

    I actually used Autofac as a 1st story read for my High School class.
