Philip K. Dick’s impassioned final novel is a wild and visionary alternate history of the United States. It is 1969, and a paranoid president has convulsed America in a vicious war against imaginary internal enemies. As the country slides into fascism, a struggling science fiction writer named Philip K. Dick is trying to keep from becoming one of that war’s casualties. Meanwhile, Dick’s best friend, a record executive named Nicholas Brady, is receiving transmissions from a God-like extraterrestrial intelligence, which he dubs Valis, who apparently wants him to overthrow the president.

Agonizingly suspenseful, darkly hilarious, and filled with enough conspiracy theories to thrill the most hardened paranoid, Radio Free Albemuth is proof of Dick’s stature as our century’s greatest science-fiction writer.

    " Didn't really like the plot, but PKD writes like his usual self, a very noir, harboiled style which I seem to can't get enough of. "

    " 2.5 / 5 Decent story, not Dick's strongest work. Would recommend to a PKD fan, but not someone being introduced to the author. "

    " Feel like I should read more of his wotk before passing judgement. I know this in one of his "odder" works. Gets heavy on the religious parallels in the end... "
