Edit February 8, 2021: This is a classic in science fiction, reproduced here for the much later film. The afterword is fantastic, detailing how the book was shopped around the film industry during the 1970s, until it finally got into production, as a much different version, with extensive re-writes by other people and filmmakers, and the author's reactions to that whole process as it went along, as recalled by another writer who extensively featured Mr. Dick in his own articles. In the end, Dick was very pleased with the beginning reels of the final film, but died of a heart attack in the months before its completion. I greatly enjoyed all that background detail. As for the original story, I currently have this ranked at #781 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
