A visionary whose writing broke through the boundaries of the science fiction genre, Philip K. Dick is regarded as a major figure of twentieth-century fiction. In 2007, he became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America Series. This collection of nine of his outstanding shorter works includes such classics as Autofac, Progeny, The Exit Door Leads In, A Little Something for Us Tempunauts, The Last of the Masters, The Preserving Machine, Novelty Act, The War with the Fnools, and The Electric Ant.

Set in various dystopian futures, these stories explore such themes as time travel, artificial/alien intelligence, authority, knowledge and the use or control of it, memory, and the frighteningly malleable nature of what we call reality. Download and start listening now!

    " Made it to the third-to-last story. While some of the plots had interesting topics, the old-style sci-fi sexism was bothersome and the audio book readers were poor and extremely irritating, so moving on. "

About the Author
Author Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick (1928–1982) published thirty-six science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power. Toward the end of his life, his work turned toward deeply personal, metaphysical questions concerning the nature of God. Eleven novels and short stories have been adapted to film, notably Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 the Library of America published a selection of his novels in three volumes. His work has been translated into more than twenty-five languages.
