Precognition; a world ruled by Relativism; giant alien jellyfish. The World Jones Made is a classic Philip K. Dick mash-up, taking deep philosophical musings and infusing them with wild action.
Floyd Jones has always been able to see exactly one year into his future, a gift and curse that began one year before he was even born. As a fortuneteller at a post-apocalyptic carnival, Jones is a powerful force, and may be able to free society from its paralyzing Relativism. If, that is, he can avoid the radioactively unstable government hit man on his tail.

I'm a big fan of Philip K. Dick stories and novels, and this one doesn't disappoint even though it is not one of his better known works. As interesting and thought provoking as most, though perhaps a little more far-fetched.....but then, that's part of what science fiction is about.
I love Phillip K. Dick (PKD), and it books like this coming back for more. The book is about knowing the future, yet still trying to change it. Does it change or does it change you. Is it good to know what will happen or is the discovery part of life. There are a lot of other theme, but I won't spoil the book. If this it your first PKD book, go with Ubik first.
