About

For all the odd worlds hauled of his amazing and vibrant imagination, Philip K. Dick was mostly concerned with humankind's most achingly familiar heartaches and battles. In Our Friends From Frolix 8, he also clashes private fantasies against people conflicts within an fast-paced and provocative narrative that finally addresses our salvation equally as individuals and an entire. Nick Appleton is a menial laborer whose lifestyle is a string of endless temptations. Willis Gram is the despotic oligarch of a world ruled by big-brained elites. When they fall in love with Charlotte Boyer, a feisty black marketer of radical propaganda, Nick appears destined for doom. But what takes a decidedly unpredictable twist once the revolution's leader, Thors Provoni, yields from ten decades of intergalactic hiding using a ninety-ton protoplasmic slime that's bent on creating a new world order. Winner of both the Hugo and John W. Campbell awards for best novel, widely regarded as the premiere science fiction writer of the day, and also the thing of cult-like adoration from his legions of fans, Philip K. Dick has come to be viewed in a literary light that defies classification in much the exact same way as Borges and Calvino. From the Trade Paperback edition.
