If you are a big fan of PK Dick you should read this book- not the greatest but good. Not a good Dick book if it is your first. Too sporadic, however this is an inphallable quality of the work of Dick. I felt the characters could have been stronger.

I was a little surprised with the quality of this story. The ending was kinda cheesy and I did not appreciate the political forward by Dean Koontz whose aim it seemed was to perpetuate the idea that Pod People are Communists. As I was compelled to re ...more

The Mad Gasser Of Mattoon by Scott Maruna
"Can't really remember why I put this book on my to read list - but it was a load of old shite really. It's a sort of critical review of a real life event - in 1944 there was a spate of weird gas attacks on homes in a small rural town in the US tha..." Read more of this review »
