About

His most stories and books, including such classics like Ubik and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? , reflect a profoundly personal world perspective, exploring the delicate, multifarious nature of reality itself and analyzing those elements which make us make us human. He did as much as anybody to demolish the artificial barrier between genre fiction and"literature," and also the very best of his work has made a permanent place in American popular culture. We Can Remember It for You Wholesale is the Last installation of a uniform, five-volume version of The Collected Stories of Philip K. Dick. This expansive collection includes 27 stories and novellas written between 1963 and 1981, years where Dick produced a few of their most mature work, including such books as Ubik, Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said, and A Scanner Darkly. One of the many joys contained here would be the timeless name narrative (filmed twice as Total Recall), where a typical clerk, awash in literary memories, finds the truth about his past and about the astounding role he's played in human history; the Hugo-nominated"Faith of Our Fathers," with its gloomy and contentious vision of some predatory deity; and"The Electric Ant," a brilliant embodiment of some timeless Dick motif: the evasive --and changeable--character of that which we think to become"real." Like its predecessors, this generous quantity provides humor, creativity, and intellectual enthusiasm on almost every page. The best of those stories, such as the finest of Dick's books, are imagined, profoundly personal visions that nobody else might have written. They are likely to be around for a lengthy period to come.
