Electronic mechanic Jennings wakes up with no memory of the past two years of his life, except that he had agreed to work for Retherick Construction. Payment for his services, now completed, is a bag of seemingly worthless objects: a code key, a ticket stub, a receipt, a length of wire, half a poker chip, a piece of green cloth, and a bus token. But when he is confronted by the Special Police, who seem to be investigating Retherick for their own reasons, Jennings finds himself running for his life, realizing that the worthless objects are the key to unlocking his recent past, and ensuring that he has a future.

    " I enjoy the early sci-fi 50's-ish conservative feel. Also the twist driven. And it is PKD. But there are plenty of volumes of his short stories and this contains his earliest. I'd reach a little farther down the isle and pick up later short stories had I the choice to make again. "

    " Fun, classic sf short stories. It's amazing how much they reveal the culture of the day (there's one about a Nanny robot who takes care of kids, and the mom still stays home all day). There's a lot of great ideas here, and some interesting reccurring themes, like insect world dominance, perilous creatures that seem harmless, the perils of time travel, etc. "

    " I didn't realize from the cover blurb that this was a collection of short stories. I'm not really a huge fan of shorts, they tend to end too abruptly. But these were ok and brought up some interesting ideas. "

    " I wanted to like this more. I really did like some of the stories, but too many of them felt like they were just mediocre sci-fi leading up to an obvious twist at the end. Some of the twists weren't so obvious, but then those stories were disappointing too. In the end, it was OK, but I wish my first PKD that I read was something better. "
