9781606644423: Mr. Spaceship by Philip K. Dick, Science Fiction, Adventure

The story is set in the distant future, where humanity is at war with "Yuks", an alien life form which does not use mechanical spaceships nor constructions. Instead, it relies on life forms. The war has been going on for a long time, and humanity has not been able to come up with a solution against the life-form based ships and mines that the Yuks use. One day, a team of researchers led by Philip Kramer decide to build a spaceship which is powered by a human brain. They find the ideal candidate, Kramer's old professor, a dying man who volunteers to donate his brain to the project. A human brain-controlled spacecraft would mean mechanical perfection. This was accomplished, and something unforeseen: a strange entity called . . . Mr. Spaceship!

About the Author:

Philip Kindred Dick (1928 - 1982) was an American writer, who published works mainly belonging to the genre of science fiction. Dick explored philosophical, sociological and political themes in novels with plots dominated by monopolistic corporations, authoritarian governments, alternate universes and altered states of consciousness. His work reflected his personal interest in metaphysics and theology and often drew upon his life experiences in addressing the nature of reality, identity, drug abuse, schizophrenia and transcendental experiences. Dick's published works mainly belong to the genre of science fiction. --Wikipedia
