The stories within SECOND VARIETY were written between 1952 and 1955, while America was in the grip of McCarthyism. The concerns of the time are reflected in stories such as Second Variety, which tells of an endless war fought by ever more cunning and sophisticated robots, or Imposter where a man accused of being an alien spy finds his whole identity called into question. Using his marvellously varied, quirky and idiosyncratic style, Dick speaks up for ordinary people against militarism, paranoia and xenophobia.

SECOND VARIETY The claws were bad enough in the first place—nasty, crawling little death-robots. But when they began to imitate their creators, it was time for the human race to make peace—if it could! The Russian soldier made his way nervously up the ragged side of the hill, holding his gun ready. He glanced around him, licking his dry lips, his face set. From time to time he reached up a gloved hand and wiped perspiration from his neck, pushing down his coat collar. Eric turned to Corporal Leone. “Want him? Or can I have him?” He adjusted the view sight so the Russian’s features squarely filled the glass, the lines cutting across his hard, somber features. Leone considered. The Russian was close, moving rapidly, almost running. “Don’t fire. Wait.” Leone tensed. “I don’t think we’re needed.” The Russian increased his pace, kicking ash and piles of debris out of his way. He reached the top of the hill and stopped, panting, staring around him. The sky was overcast, drifting clouds of gray particles. Bare trunks of trees jutted up occasionally; the ground was level and bare, rubble-strewn, with the ruins of buildings standing out here and there like yellowing skulls. The Russian was uneasy. He knew something was wrong. He started down the hill. Now he was only a few paces from the bunker. Eric was getting fidgety. He played with his pistol, glancing at Leone. “Don’t worry,” Leone said. “He won’t get here. They’ll take care of him.” “Are you sure? He’s got damn far.” “They hang around close to the bunker. He’s getting into the bad part. Get set!” The Russian began to hurry, sliding down the hill, his boots sinking into the heaps of gray ash, trying to keep his gun up. He stopped for a moment, lifting his fieldglasses to his face. “He’s looking right at us,” Eric said.

Includes The Golden Man, the basis for the motion picture "Next" The collected stories of Philip K. Dick are awe inspiring. "The Washington Post" Many thousands of readers worldwide consider Philip K. Dick to have been the greatest science fiction writer on "any" planet. Since his untimely death in 1982, interest in Dick s work has continued to mount and his reputation has been enhanced by a growing body of critical attention. The Philip K. Dick Award is now presented annually to a distinguished work of science fiction, and the Philip K. Dick Society is devoted to the study and promulgation of his works. This collection draws from the writer s earliest short and medium-length fiction (including several previously unpublished stories) during the years 1952-1955, and features such fascinating works as "Second Variety, " "Foster, You re Dead, The Father-Thing," and many others. Here, readers will find Dick s initial explorations of the themes he so brilliantly brought to life in his later work. Dick won the prestigious Hugo Award for best novel of 1963 for "The Man in the High Castle" and in the last year of his life, the now-classic film "Blade Runner" was made from his novel "Do Androids Dream Electric Sheep?" More recently, Dick s short story"The Minority Report"inspired a Steven Spielberg movie as well as a TV series. The classic stories of Philip K. Dick offer an intriguing glimpse into the early imagination of one of science fiction s most enduring and respected names. A useful acquisition for any serious SF library or collection. "Kirkus Reviews" More than anyone else in the field, Mr. Dick really puts you inside people s minds. "Wall Street Journal" With an Introduction by John Brunner"
