I loved Volume 1 and look forward to completing the rest of the series. Mr. Dick was a visionary. For the most part, I liked the narrator but sometimes the men's "voices" sounded a bit stilted.
I wished Audible listed the title for each chapter in the Table of Contents. I created my own, as listed below for Volume 1.
Volume 1: The King of Elves
1. Stability (1987)
2. Roog (1953)
3. The Little Movement (1952)

6. The Skull (1952)
7. The Defenders (1953)

I'll just get it out in the open. The stories run together as if they do not end. The narration is very good. The narrator seamlessly voices character of difference sex, age, and species (because it is PKD) with skill and feeling. But the stories are ran together with no discernable break. The stories themselves are gold. It could have used a little more careful production.

I'm sorry to say that the quality of this collection is very poor. It certainly wasn't made for digital format, and is about as useful as a cassette tape. There is no gap between many of the chapters, so you will end up halfway through another story before you realise.
Some of the short stories are great, other not so much. Philip K Dick has great stories.

There are many interesting stories in the collection. Even when they are less than perfectly executed they already have the beginnings of the authors approach
A fine grouping of very listenable short stories with thought provoking ideas..
Some require to be heard a second time...
