Psychic security expert Glen Runciter is dead. Or is he? Someone died in the explosion orchestrated by his business rivals, but even as his funeral is scheduled, his mourning employees are receiving bewildering messages from their boss. In this mind-bending 1969 novel—one of science fiction grandmaster Philip K. Dick's most iconic works—Joe Chip and his team are trying to figure out what Runciter wants to tell them, even as the world around them is warping and regressing in ways that suggest that their own time is running out.
"For everyone lost in the endlessly multiplicating realities of the modern world, remember: Philip K. Dick got there first."—Terry Gilliam
