Description

THE FATHER THING contains the stories written in 1956, just before the publication of Dick's first novel, SOLAR LOTTERY. The stories are a mix of the previously uncollected and some of his most famous pieces such as 'Foster, You're Dead' a powerful extrapolation of nuclear war hysteria, and 'The Golden Man', a very different story about a super-evolved mutant human.
