Summary

In the near future, after the world powers have collapsed, those who were once the disenfranchised now make up the ruling classes on earth. When Bard Sung-wu is sent to investigate disturbances among the lower castes in Detroit, he expects to find savages without any knowledge of the world. What he finds instead will change the course of his life.

Philip K. Dick was an American science-fiction novelist, short-story writer and essayist. His first short story, “Beyond Lies the Wub,” was published shortly after his high school graduation. Some of his most famous short stories were adapted for film, including “The Minority Report,” “Paycheck,” “Second Variety” (adapted into the film Screamers) and “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” (adapted into the film Total Recall).
