Reviewer: kakunka - - September 22, 2021
Subject: Shifting reality - Philip K. Dick
The preface writer and editor of the book presents a scholastic approach to Dick and his writing. . . He's adroit and well spoken. . . Dick's own writing points to an extremely scholarly approach to his own demented views. . .

It's well done, but at the end, Dick is merely a nut explaining why he has adopted Gnostic Christianity. . .
It more or less degenerates into sophistic word salad. . .

That's great. You can tell he's a bit whacked by reading his novels.

It has an amusing and informative aspect up to a certain point. Then it merely becomes repetitive, boring, and an exercise, as I say, "word salad".

Read it til you are sick of it, and stop. It won't get better.
