9780020236214: Solar Lottery (A Collier Nucleus Science Fiction Classic)

In Solar Lottery, the ruler of the Universe is chosen according to the random laws of a strange game. Quizmaster Verrick is currently in charge, but when Ted Bentley, a research technician recently dismissed from his job, signs on to work for Verrick, he has no idea that Leon Cartwright is about to become the new Quizmaster. Nor does he know that he himself is about to play an integral part in the plot to assassinate Cartwright so that Verrick can resume leadership of a universe not nearly as random as it appears.

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
