Publisher's Summary

A trading spaceship often has to carry unusual cargo. But none as strange as the blubberous pig-like alien known as the wub. The captain of the ship decides that the wub may make an excellent meal for him and the crew. But the wub might have something to say about it.

Beyond Lies the Wub was Philip K. Dick's first published story and appeared in the legendary Planet Stories pulp magazine.

Also included here is The Hanging Stranger by Philip K. Dick. When Ed Loyce, a respected citizen in a small town, finds a man hanging by a rope in his town square, he is very upset. But why don't the rest of the townspeople care? Ed Loyce is going to find out.

Philip K. Dick is now considered one of the most important authors of the 20th century. Many of his stories and novels have been adapted into movies, including Blade Runner, Paycheck, A Scanner Darkly, and Next.

Yawn

the characterizations were weak, difficult to tell which character was speaking with little difference in performance... in all an annoyingly difficult story to understand!
