Ragle Gumm is an ordinary man leading an ordinary life, except that he makes his living by entering a newspaper contest every day - and winning, every day.But he gradually begins to suspect that his life - indeed his whole world - is an illusion, constructed around him for the express purpose of keeping him docile and happy. But if that is the case, what is his real world like, and what is he actually doing every day when he thinks he is guessing 'Where Will The Little Green Man Be Next?'

From the Inside Flap:

Time Out of Joint is Philip K. Dick?s classic depiction of the disorienting disparity between the world as we think it is and the world as it actually is. The year is 1998, although Ragle Gumm doesn?t know that. He thinks it?s 1959. He also thinks that he served in World War II, that he lives in a quiet little community, and that he really is the world?s long-standing champion of newspaper puzzle contests. It is only after a series of troubling hallucinations that he begins to suspect otherwise. And once he pursues his suspicions, he begins to see how he is the center of a universe gone terribly awry.

From the Back Cover:

“Dick was one of the genuine visionaries.... His best novels constitute as significant a body of work as that of any writer in this country in the last thirty years.”– L.A. Weekly

“Dick was sf’s greatest extrapolator of modern angst.” --New York Daily News
