What would the world have been like if The Axis had won World War II? What If and interplanetary drug war creates a jump in human evolution? What if we really could talk to the dead, or if dead, talk to the living? And what if we can't tell the difference between ourselves and our thoughts and the technology we create? Philip K. Dick has been one of my favorite authors since I read him in high school. He often explores the sense of dislocated identity that people acquire from the dystopian view of the future he often presents. Read these themes as warnings about what the world could be. This book contains the novel that inspired the movie blade runner (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep), but his stories usually don't resolve themselves as comfortably as the movies based on his works. Be prepared to be disturbed.
