Title: Genius anarchic weird & wonderful
Content: This story is a weird futuristic tale with many themes relevant to today's world( drug abuse, racism, incest, secret genetic engineering, television fame, lesbians, sex, public awareness of existence in society )that were probably very taboo in PKD's time. I imagine that there was a fury by closed minded " law and order" type people that these subjects were taken on and put out into the mainstream in this tale. The tale is also so random in it's plot that you can only feel a bit sorry for the main character Jason Taverner who is a "6",a genetically engineered superior human through no fault of his own. It has a slight flavour of nazi eugenics with a master race theme in the sixes. Telepathy is one of their abilities. Black people have nearly gone extinct too which adds to the Nazi genetic theme in the tale. Weird but wonderful and definitely a 10/10 from me. It almost leaves you with a feeling of dread for the future similar to Orwell's 1984.

Title: Another Fine PKD Novel
Content: "Jason Taverner is a Six, the result of top secret government experiments forty years before which produced a handful of unnaturally bright and beautiful people - and he's the prime-time idol of millions... until, inexplicably, all record of him disappears from the data banks. Now he is a man with no identity in a police state where everybody's records are monitored. Can he ever be rich and famous again?... If indeed those memories are not illusions" -- from the backcover Another fine work by Philip K Dick (1928-1982), exploring the themes of 'what is real?' and 'what is it to be human?'. Flow My Tears The Policeman Said was a Nebula Award nominee in 1974; a John W. Campbell Award winner in 1975; a Hugo Award nominee in 1975 and a Locus Award nominee, again in 1975. `The most consistently brilliant SF writer in the world' --John Brunner `Dick quietly produced serious fiction in a popular form and there can be no greater praise' --Michael Moorcock `One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction, Philip K. Dick made most of the European avant-guarde seem navel-gazers in a cul-de-sac' --Sunday Times `He was the funniest SF writer of his time, and perhaps the most terrifying' --Encyclopedia of Science Fiction If you are new to Philip K Dick's work I would also recommend the following novels (which generally seem to be regarded as among his best): The Man In The High Castle (S.F. Masterworks) Ubik (S.F. Masterworks) Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? (S.F. Masterworks) The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (S.F. Masterworks) Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said (S.F. Masterworks) That said, though some of PKD's works are better than others, to my mind they are all well worth reading. I would also recommend his short story collections: Beyond Lies The Wub: Volume One Of The Collected Short Stories Second Variety: Volume Two Of The Collected Short Stories The Father-Thing: Volume Three Of The Collected Short Stories Minority Report: Volume Four Of The Collected Short Stories We Can Remember It For You Wholesale: Volume Five of The Collected Short Stories

Title: This is all evidence for a extra-terrestrial force of good coming into our world and changing the vibration
Content: For those in the know this was the text that was saved from the raid/robbery on Dick's house on 17 November 1971, as it was in his lawyer's safe at the time. This was brought about by a message in a dream. He claims that it was written as a combined effort from another unseen hand VALIS. For evidence of this, he points to two incidents. 1 - The Acts passages that reflect The Bible (8 26-40) that Dick claims to have not read until afterwards. 2 - The cipher 'King Felix' a message to the third eyed people (the sixes) is mentioned by Dick as a message for the sixes to stop building (interestingly enough the builders of civilisations across the Universe). 3 - The protaganist and the key characters names are the same as those that Dick meets some years later, and their situations reflect his story. Now to most this must seem so bizarre and crazy, until you read what else was happening at the time in 1971: 'In 1971 Andrija Puharich met a talented young Israeli named Uri Geller, whose psychic abilities had already made him well known in his homeland. The next year Uri came to America, where millions of people have since watched him bend keys, stop watches, and break metal rings, with no apparent physical pressure. So far no one has been able to explain successfully how he does these things. 'But these remarkable talents are only the beginning of the story told in this book [Uri- A Journal of the Mystery of Uri Geller and Andrija Puharich]. Out of the friendship between Dr. Puharich and Uri Geller grew one of the most extraordinary adventures of a lifetime. Not long after their first meeting, according to Puharich, they were contacted by "Spectra," a voice they believed to represent an extraterrestrial intelligence called "Hoova." This is Dr. Puharich's account of how he and Uri thus became the first individuals in modern history believed to have made extended contact with non-earthly beings; how "Hoova" explained the source of Uri's psychic powers; and what they learned about the relationship between this intelligence and the inhabitants of earth.' What is important to notice about this is that contact was made in both cases, so there is a correlation that is unconnected as Dick and Uri did not know each other etc. This is all evidence for a extra-terrestrial force of good coming into our world and changing the vibration and ultimately bring forth a new age for humanity. The sixes are the 6th chakra negative people, these are from the Aragon civilisation according to The Only Planet of Choice, that were sent here to rule over mankind until it was ready to go to the next stage. The sevens represent a civilization know as Altea or Ultima that are seventh chakras, who are here to help bring the planet to its true state as the planet of the 4th Chakra that of the Hoovid civilisation, the heat or planet of love. Jesus is the leader of the Hoovids.

Title: Not as good as I remember
Content: Brilliant title, I was impressed by this book when I first read it a long time a go but this time round I couldn't be bothered with it. I think I was much less engaged by a world dominated by corporations and celebrity, frankly we get enough of that in everyday life.

Title: Strange and trippy story
Content: This book is fairly short and and pretty straightforward plot-wise, but also trippy and weird in places. Definitely Phillip K Sick with blending realities etc. Worth your timd.
