Channeling PKD

Philip K Dick, that is. This book is Daryl Gregory's attempt to take on the persona of the greatly demented late SciFi master. The story includes many of the hallmarks of Dick's writing: identity issues, mundane backdrop, free association, childish protagonist. And PKD himself wanders through the plot. In the end, though, Gregory's sanity breaks through (oops, is this a plot spoiler?) and the story comes to a coherent, non-Dickian conclusion.
