    " 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. "

    " Spotty. "The Exit Door Leads In" and "The Electric Ant" are classic. "

About the Author
Author Philip K. Dick

Philip K. Dick (1928–1982) was a writer of extraordinary vision and imagination whose works reflected a strong interest in metaphysics, theology, and speculative politics. In his work, the individual is often pitted against authoritarian governments or monopolistic corporations. He also drew from his own experiences of altered states, paranoia, and mystical reveries. In 2007, Dick became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America series. In addition to his dozens of published novels, he wrote over 120 short stories, many of which appeared in science fiction magazines. At least eight of his stories have been adapted for film.
