    • This was a really great experience, and I'd have to say after this that PKD is one of my favorite authors. I think if I wrote, I'd shamelessly rip him off. After giving each a brief try, I put down each of the VALIS novels. In his last stories, he gets away from sci-fi and really digs into his philosophy on religion and death. Maybe I'll come back to these one day, but it's not for me right now. I gather from some searching that "Transmigration" in particular is really good, if it's what you're [...]


    • The magisterial Library of America thought Philip K. Dick important enough for inclusion and a boxed set. The author is important, certainly, in cinematic history: movies like "Blade Runner," "Total Recall," "Minority Report" and "Adjustment Bureau" -- among others -- were from his inspiration, and Dick's novel "The Man in the High Castle" (now a successful TV miniseries) was a pioneer in the alt-history literary genre. The stories in this collection are all brilliant and those who love sci-fi w [...]


    • I wish I had read this when I was a teenager. These stories are filled with wild fantastic ideas and twists. Each story is a bleak reminder of our human frailty as the human race drives forward into our future, showing that, even with all of our technology, we cannot escape our origins and fears.This is a wonderful collection of dark science fiction.


    • Boring!I understand that this book was written in the 60s and writing style was different then. But these stories are a struggle.I've finished The Man in the High Castle and The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch. These two make up half of this volume. High Castle seemed to have no plot at all. Stigmata sort of had a long, meandering plot where I was wondering what the point of all of this is. I'm only continuing to read this novel for research, out of curiosity of what made so many of his storie [...]


    • I'd just finished assembling a 28 disc filmography of motion pictures inspired by the works of Philip K Dick when my friend showed me his copy of this wonderful Collection. I confessed that I have not yet read any of his books, and he assured me that this is the best PKD collection ever printed. I researched his bibliography and came to the same conclusion. Fortunately, this set is still in print and widely available from any retailer.The only drawback of going to this friend's house is that I i [...]


    • Since this is a collection of many novels, I'll give separate ratings: Book One (Four Novels of the 1960s)The Man in the High Castle ****The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch *****Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? ****Ubik *****Book Two (Five Novels of the 1960s & 70s)Martian Time-Slip ****Dr.Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb ****Now Wait for Last Year ***Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said ****A Scanner Darkly ****Book Three (Valis and Later Novels)A Maze of Death ****Valis ** [...]


    • finished half of this collection, enjoy it a lot although not as much as his short stories. even if you have seen movies of his works, they are all worth reading as hollywood seems to change them all in significant enough ways as to alter their meanings, dick's intent, and the wonderful sixties vision of the future where the stories are set.
