Publisher's Summary

Philip K. Dick’s classic short story tells the story of Douglas Quail, an unfulfilled bureaucrat who dreams of visiting Mars, but can't afford the trip. Luckily, there is Rekal Incorporated, a company that lets everyday stiffs believe they’ve been on incredible adventures. The only problem is that when technicians attempt a memory implant of a spy mission to Mars, they find that real memories of just such a trip are already in Quail's brain. Suddenly, Quail is running for his life from government agents, but his memories might make him more of a liability than he is worth.

An hour well-spent...or was it?

Was the main character in a dream, or did the events actually happen?

PKD draws upon unique ideas, and creates a surprisingly realistic premises from the completely bizare, and he does so in an interesting way. It is funny to me that he could bring forth more in a short story, than many authors seem capable of writing in endless hours of written material.

PKD good one

this is a well known and excellent story, different than the movie of course. i do think this is contained within one of the other short story collections of PKD and I didn't double check before buying. still a good performance, but may even be same reader as other collection. I have grown to like PKD more and more but generally his alternate reality ideas are his best in my opinion, Scanner, Androids, Valis, Policeman so far the best.
