Synopsis: For all the strange worlds borne of his vast and vivid imagination, Philip K. Dick was largely concerned with humanity’s most achingly familiar heartaches and struggles. In Our Friends From Frolix 8, he clashes private dreams against public battles in a fast-paced and provocative tale that ultimately addresses our salvation both as individuals and a whole.
Nick Appleton is a menial laborer whose life is a series of endless frustrations. Willis Gram is the despotic oligarch of a planet ruled by big-brained elites. When they both fall in love with Charlotte Boyer, a feisty black marketer of revolutionary propaganda, Nick seems destined for doom. But everything takes a decidedly unpredictable turn when the revolution’s leader, Thors Provoni, returns from ten years of intergalactic hiding with a ninety-ton protoplasmic slime that is bent on creating a new world order.
Winner of both the Hugo and John W. Campbell awards for best novel, widely regarded as the premiere science fiction writer of his day, and the object of cult-like adoration from his legions of fans, Philip K. Dick has come to be seen in a literary light that defies classification in much the same way as Borges and Calvino. With breathtaking insight, he utilizes vividly unfamiliar worlds to evoke the hauntingly and hilariously familiar in our society and ourselves.
From the Back Cover:
“Dick was a sci-fi poet of paranoia.” —The New York Times
“One of the last century’s real masters–and most unconventional practitioners–of science fiction.” —Book Magazine
“What Franz Kafka was to the first half of the 20th century, Philip K. Dick is to the second half.” —Art Spiegelman
“One of the most original writers of the 20th century. . . . Dick’s books are fun to read, full of action and humor and strong characters. They’re more than a little paranoid . . . but he keeps the pages turning and keeps readers guessing about what’s real and what isn’t.” —The Oregonian
“Dick combines Franz Kafka’s pervasive sense of existential dread with George Orwell’s cautionary vision of the future.” —Boston Herald
“Dick specialized in dystopian futures, altered realities, and the effect of technology on humanity. He was a visionary writing 40 years ago about issues that have only recently become significant.” —USA Today
