Earth is trapped in the crossfire of an unwinnable war between two alien civilizations. Its leader is perpetually on the verge of death. And on top of that, a new drug has just entered circulation—a drug that haphazardly sends its users traveling through time. In an attempt to escape his doomed marriage, Dr. Eric Sweetscent becomes caught up in all of it. But he has questions: Is Earth on the right side of the war? Is he supposed to heal Earth’s leader or keep him sick? And can he change the harrowing future that the drug has shown him?

    " Mediocre Dick. "

    " In the tradition of Philip K. Dick's relentless quest to explore the nature of reality, "Now Wait For Last Year" more specifically explores the notion of time, utilizing a clever political angle to drive this exploration forward. Its an intriguing book that touches on war, peace, politics, marital problems, the effects of drugs, drug addiction, and the purpose of one's role in the world when everything seems to be collapsing. If it sounds like alot, it is. But PKD is so good at pulling all his ideas together, as he seemingly always does. I found this book to be more depressing than the other ones I've read of his, only because its messages rung very true both to me personally and with regards to the state of the world. Another very solid book by one of America's great philosophers. "

    " Immortality is only possible within one lifespan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jayaprakash Satyamurthy | 1/23/2014

    " Dick's misogyny is at full-bore here (PKD's works are so bound up in his own life and experiences that it helps, if you plan to read a considerable amount of his work, to get hold of a good biography like Lawrence Sutin's Divine Invasions and try and correlate the themes and issues in his books with what was going on in his rather messy and chaotic life at the time). So are his explorations of the nature of reality and time, the effects of weird drugs and his deep engagement with ethics, something that gets commented on less often than the first two themes. This is a gripping novel with a whole lot of really cool ideas, none of which are gadget-spec or extrapolation for its own sake. As always, some of the twists the story takes are unexpected and in retrospect truly brilliant. PKD learned well from that old SF master, Van Vogt the arts of building a story from ideas without letting the ideas overwhelm the plot, a tightrope walk that he manages better than most SF writers. I felt the conclusion of the novel was a bit weak and the story had already reached its crisis and climax a while back, and I am not sure that the lead character's final decisions mitigates or merely continues the misogynistic treatment of the major female character in the book, these two elements are the main reasons I'm giving this book 4 stars instead of 5.
