UBIK. Garden City: Doubleday & Co., Inc., 1969. Octavo, cloth. First edition. "A brilliantly realized science fiction future darkened by Kafkaesque paranoia. As portrayed by Dick, a world in which cryogenic suspension has abolished traditional concepts of death and in which psychics can alter the future by changing the past is one that offers no foundation for objective truth." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-113. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-336. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 4-97. Berger, Science Fiction and the New Dark Age, p. 104. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2350-56. Upper corner of first two leaves creased, staining to gutter margins from binding glue bleed, a nearly fine copy in very good or better dust jacket with mild dust soiling, light age-darkening to spine panel with just a touch of color fade, and small scratch to rear panel. (#135664).
