Publisher's Summary

Imagine if you will, you have been underground during the day, and when you come up the world has changed. There is a man hanging from a telephone pole right on Main Street, and no one seems to notice or if they do, they don't indeed care. Life appears otherwise normal, but is it? Who do you tell? Who can you tell? Or is anything really wrong? Philip K. Dick takes us into that nightmare where we run and things seen so real, but perhaps you are the one that is confused.

    "For P. K. Dick fans . . . 😱"

    I like short stories . . . They are much more difficult to craft well than longer works -- so many simply don't work.
    This works reasonably well. I admit I am a fan of Dick.
    My best advice ? Grab any number of well edited short story anthologies. You'll admire what some of these authors can do . . . 😱

    Any additional comments?

    This was a terrific short story by Dick.
    It had me hooked right off the bat and continued to have me glued right up until the ending.
    Great narration job by Vendeitti as well.
    Grab this one if you are ANY sort of fan of sci/fi.

    "Nice story but problematic narration."
    Any additional comments?


    Mr Mike Vendetti reads too fast and sometimes swallows word. If I didn't have the textual matter in front of me, I wouldn't understand some of the words and wouldn't be able to follow the story.
