Summary, etc.:
When asked by an interviewer 'Why is there Science Fiction?' Phillip K. Dick responded 'There is SF because the human brain craves sensory and intellectual stimulation before anything else, and the eccentric view provides unlimited stimulation, the eccentric view and the invented world.... The function of SF psychologically is to cut the reader loose from the actual world that he inhabits...' And cut us loose he does. But never disappoints. This collection of five stories from early in his career casts a spotlight on Dick's incredible imagination. Included are 'Second Variety,' 'Beyond Lies the Wub,' 'The Eyes Have It,' 'Piper in the Woods,' 'The Variable Man.'
