This volume of the classic stories of Philip K. Dick offers an intriguing glimpse into the early imagination of one of science fiction's most enduring and respected names. Since his untimely death in 1982, interest in Dick's work has continued to mount and his reputation has been enhanced by a growing body of critical attention as well as many films based on his stories and novels.

Featuring the story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, which inspired the major motion picture Total Recall, this collection draws from the writer's earliest fiction, written during the years 1952-55. Also included are fascinating works such as The Adjustment Team (basis of the 2011 movie The Adjustment Bureau), Impostor (basis of the 2001 movie), and many others. 

"A useful acquisition for any serious SF library or collection." --Kirkus Reviews

"More than anyone else in the field, Mr. Dick really puts you inside people's minds." --Wall Street Journal

"The collected stories of Philip K. Dick are awe-inspiring." --Washington Post
