Jonathan Lethem (as editor) and Steve Erickson (as commentator) discuss this massive tome by the great American science-fiction writer and cyber-prophet Philip K. Dick. The book is drawn from thousands of pages of notes by a man who wanted to write a unified field philosophy, a philosophy of everything. Was he a victim of the sixties? A prophet of the virtual? We discuss all this and more.
