"I really enjoyed this short story collection of some of PK Dick's finest and weirdest or short stories. Of course, as we all know, he was a genius and predicted the anxiety and reality confusion of the modern world like no one else."
"Before each tale is a piece by the screenwriter for each episode, where they explain why there are some differences, and what has drawn them to adapt the story. Reading Philip Kindred Dick is always a pleasure for a lot of us, and those new to his works will soon find out why." - Goodreads Reviews.
