The Stories Behind the Series

Though perhaps most famous as a novelist, Philip K. Dick wrote more than one hundred short stories over the course of his career, each as mind-bending and genre-defining as his longer works. Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams collects ten of the best. In “Autofac,” Dick shows us one of the earliest examples (and warnings) in science fiction of self-replicating machines. “Exhibit Piece” and “The Commuter” feature Dick exploring one of his favorite themes: the shifting nature of reality and whether it is even possible to perceive the world as it truly exists. And “The Hanging Stranger” provides a thrilling, dark political allegory as relevant today as it was when Dick wrote it at the height of the Cold War.

Strange, funny, and powerful, the stories in this collection highlight a master at work, encapsulating his boundless imagination and deep understanding of the human condition.

The audiobook was fine but I intend to read these stories as well.

not particularly my cup of tea. accumulation of short stories that just feel hollow, there's such a grand gesture of introducing each writer who has by and large some accommodation in film and TV. which makes for a great hook, however every short falls short and is uninteresting. the narration is rather obnoxious as well. just my two cents.
