Radio Free Albemuth

Front Cover
Arbor House, 1985 - Fiction - 214 pages
90 Reviews

In his last published novel, Philip K. Dick produced a wild, impassioned work that reads like a visionary alternate history of the United States. Agonizingly suspenseful, darkly hilarious, and filled with enough conspiracy theories to thrill the most hardened paranoid, RADIO FREE ALBEMUTH is proof of Dick's stature as our century's greatest prankster-prophet.
