  • The Early Stories of Philip K. Dick

    By Philip K. Dick

    Read by Chris Lutkin

    A new audio anthology featuring early stories from acclaimed American novelist Philip K. Dick.

    "...this is a must-listen. Dick was known for his big ideas, his sprawling sociopolitical and philosophical themes, and his sharply drawn characters; reader Lutkin wisely keeps out of the author’s way, narrating the stories in a pleasant but unobtrusive manner that allows us to focus on the material and not the performance." - Booklist (audio review)
