From the mounting terror of a resurrection gone terribly wrong (the subject of the title story) to the narrator's dawning realization that logic points inescapably to a dark fate for the human race ("The Golden Man"), the moments embodied in the stories of Philip K. Dick remain some of the best and most significant in sf. Featuring 22 novellas and stories written in 1953 and 1954, this third volume of a projected five-volume series presents the work of one of the 20th century's most literate and articulate writers.
VERDICT Fans of the author and libraries wishing for a comprehensive collection of Dick's short fiction will appreciate this series.
