Publisher's Summary

The Stories Behind the Series

Though perhaps most famous as a novelist, Philip K. Dick wrote more than 100 short stories over the course of his career, each as mind-bending and genre-defining as his longer works. Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams collects 10 of the best. In "Autofac," Dick shows us one of the earliest examples (and warnings) in science fiction of self-replicating machines. "Exhibit Piece" and "The Commuter" feature Dick exploring one of his favorite themes: the shifting nature of reality and whether it is even possible to perceive the world as it truly exists. And "The Hanging Stranger" provides a thrilling, dark political allegory as relevant today as it was when Dick wrote it at the height of the Cold War.

Strange, funny, and powerful, the stories in this collection highlight a master at work, encapsulating his boundless imagination and deep understanding of the human condition.

I Enjoy P K

But this presentation, eck. The 1st 3 stories met and exceeded my expectations. After that downhill as the stories were/seemed bastardized renditions. Maybe better read than listened to.

Twilight Zone with Technology

This was an alright compilation of twilight zone short stories. This kind of reminded me of a lesser through tour “Black Mirror” type genre of storied. I would recommend it to people that enjoy those types of stories with a technological bleakness.

a great Philip K dick collection of stories

I am a huge fan of Philip k. dick, you think you see the world in one way, and then you read a PKD story, and you see the world... Just a little bit differently. even though these short stories were adapted and slightly updated, the story still holds true to the original work and the message that he was trying to get across. highly recommend this to anybody who's a fan of PKD..

Nice collection if you like PKD.

If you're a PKD fan, you'll like this. themes are repetative but always interesting. Not his best but entertaining. Narration left something to be desired. overall worth the purchase.
