Read full description of the books:



The second volume of the definitive five-book set of the complete collected stories of the twentieth century's greatest sf author includes such masterpieces as the title story, with its endless war being fought by ever more cunning and sophisticated robot weapons, and "Impostor" where a man accused of being an alien spy finds his whole identity called into question. In these twenty-seven stories, written and published while America was in the grip of McCarthyism, Philip K. Dick speaks up for ordinary people and against militarism, paranoia and xenophobia - and always in his marvellously varied, quirky and entertainingly idiosyncratic style.
