Beyond Lies the Wub – Philip K. Dick

Filed under: book review — mahou @ 12:20 am

Great collection of early PKD sci fi. Not every one is a winner but more good ideas in one collection then most writers come up with in a career.
Best stories:
Paycheck – using time travel to see into the future and grab what you need.
The Variable Man – over reliance on technology superceded by natural skill and ability.
The Skull – more time travel paradox.
Piper in the woods – silly tale of men becoming plants.
The Infinites – evolution fable – beware the hampsters!
Meddler – more time travel screw ups.
Prize Ship – is the future bigger?
King of the Elves – PKD can write fantasy too.

10/10
