Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said (1974)
by Philip K. Dick
No current Talk conversations about this book.
better the second or third or whatever
I always enjoyed Dick's short stories but as I grow older I'm less impressed by his novels. This was an interesting premise but mostly a seedy space opera. There are a few more of his novels I will read but my expectations are now lower.
It's a Wonderful Life [under Fascism]
The SF premise, that time and space are constructed by human perception was interesting, but the overall storyline was a bit confused and unsatisfying.

Pop star Jason Taverner is the product of a top-secret government experiment that produced a selection of genetically enhanced people forty years ago. Unusually bright and beautiful, he's a television idol beloved by millions -- until one day, all records of his identity inexplicably disappear. Overnight, he has gone from being a celebrity to a being a man whom no one seems to recognize. And in a police state, having no proof of his existence is enough to put his life in danger. As Jason races to solve the riddle of his disappearance, Philip K. Dick immerses us in an Orwellian atmosphere of betrayal, secrecy, and conspiracy. Painting a horribly plausible portrait of a neo-fascist America, he explores the meaning of identity and reality in a world skewed by drugs, genetic enhancement, and a culture of celebrity.
