It's a Philip K. Dick World!
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”
—Philip K. Dick
Government intrusion into our personal lives is increasing, the economy is shot and the media focus on hate and violence.
Philip K. Dick's fifth and last wife, Tessa Dick, talks about her husband. I have my own books and stories, as well.

A book that Philip K. Dick could have written
Meowing on the Answering Machine by Robert Emmett displays a twisted sense of humor, as well as outrage at the surreal qualities of what we call reality. Festooned with pen-and-ink illustrations, this book has exactly one story about a cat. You will also find self-cooking chickens and a dog who tells lies. And there are flying people, too! Oh, and a talking couch.
I recommend this collection of stories and drawings for the sheer pleasure of laughing out loud.
