9780679761679: Martian Time-Slip

On the arid colony of Mars the only thing more precious than water may be a ten-year-old schizophrenic boy named Manfred Steiner. For although the UN has slated "anomalous" children for deportation and destruction, other people--especially Supreme Goodmember Arnie Kott of the Water Worker's union--suspect that Manfred's disorder  may be a window into the future. In Martian Time-Slip Philip K. Dick uses power politics and extraterrestrial real estate scams, adultery, and murder to penetrate the mysteries of being and time.

About the Author:

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was born in Chicago but lived in California for most of his life. He went to college at Berkeley for a year, ran a record store and had his own classical-music show on a local radio station. He published his first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' in 1952. Among his many fine novels are The Man in the High Castle, Time Out of Joint, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.

From AudioFile:

Parker's voice has a nasal quality that adds commonality to this eerie story of colonial life on Mars. Manfred Steiner is a 10-year-old autistic child, born on Mars, who Arnie Kott of the Water Worker's Union suspects may be able to manipulate time. In this venue, Dick discusses reality and explores madness as a bridge to other realms. Parker's precise reading style alleviates the intensity of the drama and sometimes frenzied action and helps the listener hang on to the story line. Using consistent pacing and tone, Parker leads us through extraterrestrial real estate scams, adultery, suicide and schizophrenic episodes. This interesting social commentary and fascinating view of the future appeals to the philosopher in us all. S.C.A. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
