I ve been reading Dick s novels in chronological order and I m almost finished with the 1950s But I needed a break from novels so I switched over to the short story collections which I m reading in reverse chronological order Somehow this makes perfect sense to me So far I ve just read the first story The Little Black Box I m especially interested in Dick s religious themes, so a story that quotes the Bhagavad Gita and references Basho is sure to get my attention.Telepathy is also a common theme [...]

Just as expected, the best were saved for the end.At the end of this anthology, his work becomes philosophical, inner oriented And also grim good thing they ended with a comical short.All five volumes are absolutely worth reading, and this one so.A full five star.

As part of a research project, I read just two of the stories in this book my three star rating is thus not an attempt to judge its merit but just an attempt to give a neutral rating It s a pity GR doesn t offer the option of simply not rating a book Your Appointment Will Be Yesterday Amazing, August 1966 was the short story upon which Dick based his novel Counter Clock World, which I re read recently The same ingredients are there such as the Hobart Phase which makes time run backwards , the Pe [...]

My Philip K Dick ProjectEntry 32 The Collected Stories of Philip K Dick Vol 5 The Eye of the Sibyl 1964 1981 Well, here I am, skipping ahead in the chronology of Dick s writing again, this time all the way to the end of his life, and his very last story, The Alien Mind This collection chronicles nearly 20 years of Dick s short stories, from 1964 to 1981, by far the longest span of time covered in any of the five collections.It s a great collection, showcasing Dick s evolution into middle age Whi [...]

The quality of the stories in The Eye of the Sibyl, the fifth and final Philp K Dick collection, is wildly variable It includes some of his very best short stories, and some of his very worst Most of these stories were written after Dick had shifted his focus to novels Dick expanded several of them into later novels A few others can be described as supplements to later novels For example, The Little Black Box has the same setting as Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep , but does not involve th [...]

This is the final book in the 5 part anthology of the complete short stories of Philip K Dick It s always difficult to rate books of short stories because there s almost always some stories you like , and some stories you like less Overall great collection with a few stories I didn t care for.The greatest hits from this anthology include The Little Black Box featuring Mercer of Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep fame , Holy Quarrel, Not By Its Cover, Faith of Our Fathers, The Electric Ant a rea [...]

Overall, a solid collection of stories from 63 to 81 Suffers from the to be expected wild variations in the quality of Dick s prose, redeemed by a high percentage of fantastically engaging and thought provoking ideas Themes of self doubt, the nature of reality, the struggle of the weak individual against the crushing inhumanity of the System, all very Dickian and wonderful Some real gems in here The Electric Ant, Cadbury, the Beaver Who Lacked, A Terran Odyssey, Faith of Our Fathers to name a fe [...]

I think this is the weakest of the volumes The things I like about Dick the sense of paranoia, the philosophical questions, the religious weirdness are all here, but the ideas seem much weaker As in, those things are still present, but there s regularly an interesting hook into the story to make it interesting There are a few good ones here, but none that I would consider classic, or that I would particularly recommend And there are, unfortunately, some bad ones.

These are some deep cuts At least one is pretty awful most bear a major flaw or two and several achieve legitimate brilliance.

Una suerte de escritor beatnik del sci fi, nunca se podr a decir que los escritos de Philip K Dick pasan desapercibidos Como esta colecci n de historias bien lo demuestra, a la inventiva caracter stica de las historias de ciencia ficci n o fantas a, PKD suele darle una vuelta de tuerca adicional, a menudo alucin gena y hasta lis rgica, que nos lleva a nosotros, meros lectores, por recovecos de la mente que apenas sab amos si exist an Si leer a Asimov es como jugar a un partido de ajedrez, con re [...]

El mejor tomo de la colecci n, y me parece que en ste, los cuentos son un poco m s largos, lo que me parecer a l gico ya que este volumen recoge los cuentos escritos en la etapa m s creativa de su carrera, a partir de finales de los 60 s El primer cuento de esta colecci n contiene los antecedentes de Sue an los androides con ovejas electr nicas , que con el tiempo inspirar a el film Bladerunner Por cierto, me parece que DICK es el autor de ciencia ficci n m s llevado al cine un r pido recuento m [...]

La qualit delle storie incluse nella raccolta non costante per dire, The Pre Persons mi pare una tirata antiaborto abbastanza forzata, e la autobiografica The Eye of the Sibyl non mi ha detto nulla , ma complessivamente qui dentro ci sono un po tutte le sfumature di Dick, dall ironia che sconfina nel nonsense The War With The Fnools a storie decisamente pi angoscianti Faith of our Fathers , una delle mie preferite o deprimenti Chains of Air, Web of Aether , che mi ha fatto quasi star male per il [...]

It took me many years to read all 5 volumes, but well worth it He is a fabulous mind bender, mind expander Incredible stuff Why not 5 stars Well, with a lot of science fiction there is a bit of desperate hope in the face of all that s out there You won t find this a cheery read or something that brightens your day, but you will look at all of your problems as trivial Your problems will be solvable because you are thinking in a new way.The short story form is awesome and I consistently feel it is [...]

Excellent science fiction writer Stories that grab your attention, engage your mind and heart, and give a fresh perspective edge to life All coupled with a superb observation about the difference between short stories and novels The advantage of the story over the novel is that in the story you catch the protagonist at the climax of his life, but in the novel you ve got to follow him from the day he was born to the day he dies or nearly so Open any novel at random and usually what is happening i [...]

Last week I finished my reading of all PKD sf novels Today, I ve finished all his short stories This collection has Return Match in it, which is either the first or second thing I ever read by PKD, back around 1980, when he was still alive It also contains one of the stories I taught for a decade in my Science Fiction and Satire class Frozen Journey it was called when published This collection has some of his best ss, but I still believe he was a very unsteady ss writer He was better at novels Y [...]

I read a lot of short stories, and I have a couple books worth of them on my to read shelves I like the way you can get into a story, with a beginning, a middle, and an end, in a single sitting this is particularly convenient with a little kid around and this is the third or fourth book of PKD short stories I ve read As with other short story collections, some of the individual stories are better than others, but even the lesser ones are over quickly and you can try again.Many of Dick s favorite [...]

I do love the PKD, and this did not disappoint on the whole My only complaint is that this volume 5 out of a total of 5 volumes of his short stories, I believe kind of showcases Dick s misogyny, especially towards the end of the volume stories are arranged chronologically From how the themes of the stories progress, I assume and I really don t know anything about Dick s life, so I am probably totally wrong here that maybe something traumatic happened vis a vis women in his later life failed marr [...]

Most of these stories are excellent Around 1970, however, it seems PKD s latent but palpable misogyny exploded forth in several stories, most notably The Pre Persons , which is offensive not because it is a barely disguised polemic against abortion, but because it treats women as stultifying figures who suck all the joy out if life The same is true of Chains of Air, Web of Aether , where one of the only round female characters in his entire output is described as thanatous literally death induci [...]

All of the stories were fascinating Some were most definitely better than others Some I had no idea what the point was, but they were still interesting and others were almost prophetic I especially like the Pre Persons story since the argument made in this story is the same argument that is still being used today to justify the selfishness of our society set by an arbitrary law blessed by the government At times I felt like I was in the Matrix and at other times in Wonderland There were 24 stori [...]

America s master of surreal science fiction doesn t disappoint in this collection of short stories By warping the fabric of reality with his prose, Phillip K Dick explores what it means to be human There is not much I can write in a short review that will do the breadth of these works justice In truth, there is not much I can do in a short review to encompass his writings at all Like Borges, they must be experienced to be understood However, in spite of Dick s genius, his works with surreality a [...]

El quinto y ltimo tomo de los cuentos completos de K Dick En estos cuentos uno encuentra ya las historias que, para mi, son las m s atractivas de este autor En particular, aquellas ligadas a las dudas sobre la realidad y la alienaci n de la conciencia Todo lo que vivimos puede no existir y ni siquiera somos conscientes de ello Un accidente, un error, un sabotaje nos revelan luego que lo que vivimos es pura ilusi n, que somos otro, o que el universo ni siquiera existe Estos cuentos, muy probablem [...]

I picked up this book to read the short story The Pre Persons, and in the end devoured the entire book How did I miss PKD back in the day This is Vol 5 of 5 of his collected works, so I have a lot to read The Pre Persons is a stark tale about a world in which children may legally be aborted until they have developed reasoning ability the legal standard for being considered fully human This is at or before the age of 12, and the demonstration of which is understanding basic algebra PKD wrote thi [...]

It s impossible to review each story in a collection, but as a whole I can heartily recommend any of the PKD short story collections He s not your normal SF writer at least from the golden age he s of a postmodern Kafka esque fiction writer whose stories are set on far away planets or which involve alien minds When you finish one of these stories you re strongly tempted to stop reading and try to digest it for a while, because it will tell you something about the human condition and about yours [...]

Not my favorite Philip K Dick, but, there are still those remnants of Dickian darkness that I love so much in this collection the paranoid and broken visionary glimpses of futuristic worlds that bear a far too gloomy parallel to our own stories that are so weird they resonate as nightmarish half truths the grim and endless searching through the terrifying fringesme stories in this book are certainly better than others however, all are worth reading.

This collection was read over time I have been reading a lot of PKD s short stories most recently The stories that caught my fancy from this collection are the following The Electric Ant Strange Memories of Death , I think, would make a good one man play with some slight modifications.

More goodness from the master of Sci Fi I found this book on clearance at the Hawley Cooke book store R.I.P in the St Matthews neighborhood of Louisville It contains some stories from other anthologies but the real justification is the stuff that hadn t been published before Sadly, I believe this book is out of print.

I had enjoyed many of the stories on my reread of the previous four volumes, but in this fifth collection, there were few, if any, that I really liked He felt like he was trying to be offensive, and I just didn t enjoy it.
