This was just weird, even for PKD standards. Doctor Bluthgeld, a physicist purportedly responsible for some terrible tragedy that aversely effected the world, develops a psychological complex similar to schizophrenia and, fearing that everyone is out to get him, wills a nuclear apocalypse to happen somehow. The story mainly follows the aftermath of this Emergency Day through a handful of characters centering on a little outoftheway suburb. The characters are diverse enough, but never reasonably showcased in a way that makes you connect with them, and the powers of some of these radiation mutated beings that the story is rife with is, in my opinion, a little too out there for the tone. Not one of PKD's stronger works.
