Radio Free Albemuth

Front Cover
Arbor House, 1985 - Fiction - 214 pages
112 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.

Review: Radio Free Albemuth

User Review  - Goodreads

I read this book when I was 17, so my memories of it may be hazy. I recall that it was a bizarro version of VALIS (which is, to think of it, a funny descriptor of any PKD novel), sort of flipping the latter novel around. If taken without having read VALIS, it might seem very strange indeed. Read full review

About the author (1985)

Phillip Kindred Dick was an American science fiction writer best known for his psychological portrayals of characters trapped in illusory environments. Born in Chicago, Illinois, on December 16, 1928, Dick worked in radio and studied briefly at the University of California at Berkeley before embarking on his writing career. His first novel, Solar Lottery, was published in 1955. In 1963, Dick won the Hugo Award for his novel, The Man in the High Castle. He also wrote a series of futuristic tales about artificial creatures on the loose; notable of these was Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which was later adapted into film as Blade Runner. Dick also published several collections of short stories. He died of a stroke in Santa Ana, California, in 1982.
