Description

The stories within SECOND VARIETY were written between 1952 and 1955, while America was in the grip of McCarthyism. The concerns of the time are reflected in stories such as 'Second Variety', which tells of an endless war fought by ever more cunning and sophisticated robots, or 'Imposter' where a man accused of being an alien spy finds his whole identity called into question. Using his marvellously varied, quirky and idiosyncratic style, Dick speaks up for ordinary people against militarism, paranoia and xenophobia.

Author Biography

SALES POINTS ' A fitting tribute to a great philosophical writer who found science fiction the ideal form the expression of his ideas' The Independent ' One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction. Philip K. Dick made most of the European avant-garde seem naval gazers in a cul-de-sac' Sunday Times ' Dick quietly produced serious fiction in a popular form and there can be no greater praise' Michael Moorcock ' No other writer of his generation had such a powerful intellectual presence. He stamped himself no only on our memories but in our imaginations' Brian Aldiss
