Publisher Description

It's America in 1962. Slavery is legal once again. The few Jews who still survive hide under assumed names. In San Francisco, the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages. All because some 20 years earlier the United States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan.

This harrowing, Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction while breaking the barrier between science fiction and the serious novel of ideas. In it Dick offers a haunting vision of history as a nightmare from which it may just be possible to wake.

Half a novel

This book has a really interesting premise. This book has really interesting characters. This book has really interesting plot development. Then it stops in the middle and never finishes. Feels like half a novel. Plot is truncated. Characters are truncated. It feels like walking on a partially completed bridge and then falling into the Grand Canyon.

Half of a great novel

This book is the first half of a great novel. It sets up a very interesting world in an alternate reality, with interesting characters whose storylines become intertwined the way the best stories often do, then it even hints at the reveal of a payoff/crossover into the world we know... then it ends.
