From the Publisher:

'ONE OF THE MOST ORIGINAL PRACTITIONERS WRITING ANY KIND OF FICTION, PHILIP K. DICK MADE MOST OF THE EUROPEAN AVANT-GARDE SEEM NAVEL-GAZERS IN A CUL-DE-SAC' - Sunday Times

'I SEE DICK AS A MAJOR 21ST CENTURY WRITER, AN INFLUENTIAL "FICTIONAL PHILOSOPHER" OF THE QUANTUM AGE' - Timothy Leary

From the Back Cover:

In this biting satire, the Cold War may have ended, but the eastern and western governments never told their citizens. Instead they created an elaborate ruse, wherein each side comes up with increasingly outlandish doomsday weapons weapons that don t work. But when aliens invade, the top designers of both sides have to come together to make a real doomsday device if they don t kill each other first.
With its combination of romance, espionage, and alien invasion, The Zap Gun skewers the military-industrial complex in a way that s as relevant today as it was at the height of the Cold War.
PHILIP K. DICK (1928 1982) wrote 121 short stories and 45 novels and is considered one of the most visionary authors of the twentieth century. His work is included in the Library of America and has been translated into more than twenty five languages. Eleven works have been adapted to film, including Blade Runner (based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?), Total Recall, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly.
