From the Back Cover:

“One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction.” –The Sunday Times (London)

“A brilliant, idiosyncratic, formidably intelligent writer...Dick illuminates. He casts light. He gives off a radiance.” –Washington Post

“Philip K. Dick’s best books always describe a future that is both entirely recognizable and utterly unimaginable.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Dick [was] many authors: a poor man’s Pynchon, an oracular postmodern, a rich product of the changing subculture.” –The Village Voice
