Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Classic PKD but avoid the introductions for spoile"

    Philip K. Dick stories like to play with your expectations, often it's not clear what's going on until the end. If you haven't seen the TV series I would avoid listening to the introductions, the first one somewhat spoils the first story so I decided to skip the rest of the introductions, unfortunately Audible is as bad as it always is for chapters and the only way to do this is to mash the 30 second button until you hear the narrator change.

    It's a quick listen, I finished it in a few days but all of the stories are fantastic, the performance is good. Well worth picking up if you're a PKD fan.
