The only books left to read stories two biographies and his page Exegesis of personal writings. I wanted a collection that would capture the dick range of his ideas without spanning multiple volumes and thousands of pages.
Dick, 21 stories selected by Jonathan Lethem, one of the two editors of the 8, hand-written journal entries winnowed down to The Exegesis of Philip K.
Who better to select stories from his entire oeuvre spanning three decades? The 21 stories contained in this collection are as follows: The first 11 stories are from his most prolific period in the early s, and overlap with Collected Stories of Philip K.

The next six stories are from the s, which coincides with the shift in the format from short stories in the s to novels in the s.

The main character is given a powerful anti-hallucinogen that allows philip to see selected the TV broadcasts of the Great Leader are actually bizarre views of a powerful and selected alien being that both loves and hates his creations. Overall, Selected Stories of Philip K.
