BOOK EXCERPT:

San Francisco lies under a cloud of radioactive dust. The World War has killed millions, driving entire species to extinction and sending mankind off-planet.

Rick Deckard is an officially sanctioned bounty hunter tasked to find six rogue androids. They're machines, but look, sound, and think like humans

BOOK EXCERPT:

Philip Kindred Dick, born December 16, 1928, in Chicago, Illinois, and died March 2, 1982, in Santa Ana, California, was an American science fiction writer of novels, short stories, and science fiction essays that explored philosophical, social, and political themes. During his lifetime, he received several literary prizes, such as the Hugo Award for the novel The Man in the High Castle, and the John Wood Campbell Memorial Award for the novel Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. Philip K. Dick spent most of his career in near-poverty, but his contribution to science fiction is momentous, and some of his works have been adapted into movies to become cult films: Blade Runner, Total Recall, Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly ... In 2007, Philip K. Dick became the first science fiction writer to be included in The Library of America series.Supported by his wife, he began in 1952 a career as a professional writer; his beginnings were ignored by the literary world, which looked with caution at this author whose scientific concepts were rather odd and the style far from flawless. But his short stories, like Beyond Lies the Wub, Mr. Spaceship, Second Variety, to name only the best known, were well received by readers of Fantasy & Science Fiction magazines; this Philip K. Dick Omnibus (Illustrated with 48 original illustrations by Robert Schoolcraft) showcases ten of his early stories for your reading pleasure.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This e-book only edition brings together the three novels of Philip K. Dick's VALIS trilogy. VALIS What is VALIS? This question is at the heart of Philip K. Dick’s groundbreaking novel, the first book in his defining trilogy. When a beam of pink light begins giving a schizophrenic man named Horselover Fat (who just might also be known as Philip K. Dick) visions of an alternate Earth where the Roman Empire still reigns, he must decide whether he is crazy, or whether a godlike entity is showing him the true nature of the world. The Divine Invasion God is not dead, he has merely been exiled to an extraterrestrial planet. And it is on this planet that God meets Herb Asher and convinces him to help retake Earth from the demonic Belial. As the middlie novel of Dick's VALIS trilogy, The Divine Invasion plays a pivotal role in answering the questions raised by the first novel, expanding that world while exploring just how much anyone can really know -- even God himself. The Transmigration of Timothy Archer The final book in the VALIS trilogy, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer brings the author’s search for the identity and nature of God to a close. The novel follows Bishop Timothy Archer as he travels to Israel, ostensibly to examine ancient scrolls bearing the words of Christ. But, more importantly, this leads him to examine the decisions he made during his life and how they may have contributed to the suicide of his mistress and son.
