He describes Dick's difficult existence as an author: poverty-stricken, writing weird idiosyncratic books that were of interest to no publishers, and intermittently cranking out stock SF to pay the bills, dosed up to the eyeballs on amphetamines in order to produce works that he despised.
That is, until you get a nagging sensation that despite how perfect life is, something is amiss.

This book starts well enough, with a strong evocation of suburban 50's life. Western dominance, Islamist terror, and the Arab imagination.

And lets face it ... the new Arcade Fire album is a product.
Brooks places the epicenter of the Bigfoot war in a high-tech hideaway populated by the kind of people you might find in a Jurassic Park franchise: the schmo who doesn’t know how to do much of anything but tries anyway, the well-intentioned bleeding heart, the know-it-all intellectual who turns out to know the wrong things, the immigrant with a tough backstory and an instinct for survival. Heroism and Self-emptying sacrifice are virtues that shine despite the hellish inbreaking that is war. The film isn't a straight horror flick but moves between the cool rationalism of the courtroom drama and the bizarre disjunctive images of horror. This is a really solid PKD novel.

2013-10 is being hailed as evidence of the democratization of cinema through the mediums of digital video and social media distribution (5 million Youtube hits!). This book isn't recommended for readers not familiar with P. An early PKD novel, TIME OUT OF JOINT is not as trippy, surreal, or fractured as his later works. A third sentence, left out of the film but implied by its dramaturgy, tells us that the latter reading is the right one: “You cannot earn that [grace] or deserve it.” In short, there is no relationship between the bestowing or withholding of grace and the actions of those to whom it is either accorded or denied. This is the novel I would pick for someone who never read any of Phillip K. Dick's works. Comments (0)

PKD is such a descriptive writer I was able to picture every scene of this book vividly!
The year is 1998, although Ragle Gumm doesn’t know that. And although my initial list of reviews will be severely truncated I think this limited progression will work well.

One of his better works, in my opinion. It's a paranoiac conspiracy theorists dream. Yet some of the author's trademarks are in evidence here such as smoking cigars, snappy shoes, uncivilised civil war, disconnected discussions, and copious amounts of paranoia.
John "Jack," (Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter films), Kipling's only son, is underage, hopelessly myopic, and eager to join the war effort. I recognized that immediately that Dick was a genius.
