Good story by Philip K. Dick about a man who wakes up one day to find he doesn't exist.

Here it is a short story in stand alone format. I loved it. Nicely done -

One of the better PKD novels. Set in a dystopian police-state after a second US civil war, a TV super-star wakes up one day and discovers that no one knows who he is, as if he had never existed. The story tells of his search for the truth and his run-ins with the police, and also provides a rather moving portrait of the Police General in charge of the case.

An Ok book with a drug altering world perception at its core subject. Very science fiction and pretty far fetched. But who knows? Could it happen?

I didn't enjoy this book. It was my first PKD book, I'll give him another chance but I found a lot of the conversations in this book to be just a bunch of "blah blah blah".

An interesting study of what happens to a celebrity who defines his existence on fame when that fame and recognition is suddenly taken away. Does he still exist? And can he survive in a police state where staying alive depends on that famous identity?

A man, he thought, cries not for the future or the past but for the present. And what is the present, now?
