Along the way he will discover what the Claws have been up to, and it isn’t good… - Second Variety was first published in the May 1953 edition of Space Science Fiction Magazine.

Great short story.

Great Read!

This is my first time reading Dick’s sci-fi work. Great cold war allegory and great level of suspense, and a solid decription of a bleak atmosphere makes the reader want to read further.
