Though perhaps most famous as a novelist, Philip K. Dick wrote more than 100 short stories over the course of his career, each as mind-bending and genre-defining as his longer works. Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams collects 10 of the best. In "Autofac," Dick shows us one of the earliest examples (and warnings) in science fiction of self-replicating machines. "Exhibit Piece" and "The Commuter" feature Dick exploring one of his favorite themes: the shifting nature of reality and whether it is even possible to perceive the world as it truly exists. And "The Hanging Stranger" provides a thrilling, dark political allegory as relevant today as it was when Dick wrote it at the height of the Cold War.
Strange, funny, and powerful, the stories in this collection highlight a master at work, encapsulating his boundless imagination and deep understanding of the human condition.

I Enjoy P K
But this presentation, eck. The 1st 3 stories met and exceeded my expectations. After that downhill as the stories were/seemed bastardized renditions. Maybe better read than listened to.

Twilight Zone with Technology
This was an alright compilation of twilight zone short stories. This kind of reminded me of a lesser through tour “Black Mirror” type genre of storied. I would recommend it to people that enjoy those types of stories with a technological bleakness.
