"Philip K. Dick: (1928-1982) was a writer of incandescent originality and astonishing fertility, who made and unmade fictional world-systems with ferocious rapidity and unbridled speculative daring. The five novels collected in this volume - a successor to Philip K. Dick: Four Novels of the 1960s - Offer an overview of the range of this science-fiction master." "Martian Time-Slip (1964) unfolds on a parched and thinly colonized Red Planet where the unscrupulous seek to profit from a troubled child's time-fracturing visions. Dr. Bloodmoney, or How We Got Along After the Bomb (1965) chronicles the interwoven stories of a multiracial community of survivors, including the scientist who may have been responsible for World War III. Into this apocalyptic framework Dick weaves observations of daily life in the California of his own moment. Famous, among other reasons, for a therapy session involving a talking taxicab, Now Wait for Last Year (1966) explores the effects of JJ-180, a hallucinogen that alters not only perception, but reality." "In Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said (1974), a television star seeks to unravel a mystery that has left him stripped of his identity. A Scanner Darkly (1977), the basis for the 2006 film, envisions a drug-addled world in which a narcotics officer's tenuous hold on sanity is strained by his new surveillance assignment: himself. Regarded by some as Dick's most powerful novel, A Scanner Darkly mixes futuristic fantasy with an all-too-real evocation of the culture of addiction in 1970s America. Mixing metaphysics and madness, Dick's work remains exhilarating and unsettling in equal measure."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

So far I have read only two of these five novels, A Scanner Darkly and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said. Dick is a true California weirdo. and he captures the essence of that state while giving us memorable sci-fi. ( )

Martian Time-Slip

Arnie Kott: ‘... we got the future, and where else do you think things happen except in the future?’ (p. 115)

Martian Time-Slip refers to living in different times instead of present, also past or future.

This novel by Philip K. Dick is set in a colony on Mars and tells the story of Manfred Steiner, an autistic boy who can help other people to live in the past or in the future.
Arnie Kott, leader of the water worker’s union, becomes interested in Manfred because he wants to use Manfred’s skill to predict future in his business ventures.

Martian Time-Slip is a speculative science-fiction novel because Dick doesn’t tell about space ships or other futuristic electronic devices; so who remembers Blade Runner (or Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) is crowded out by reading this novel. ( )

In process:

Martian Time-Slip (?) - Its been a while.
Dr. Bloodmoney, Or How We Got Along After the Bomb (coping after the 'Accident' and then after the 'Event'. 'Handies' are needed. No industry, tribal societies, etc.) - Had me interested, quite entertaining.
Now Wait for Last Year (Interplanetary war. Allied with wrong side. Try to end involvement. Temporary time altering drug) - Confusing, but time travel/alternate existences have to be.
Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said (time altering drug. Wake up in alternate existence, where he doesn't exist.) -
A Scanner Darkly (Drug culture with Substance D, holoscopes/holograms.) - Nothing to do with sci-fi, etc. Just the babbling of a drug addict. Boringgggg! ( )
