Arts La-di-Da, LBJ. Here are Some books that I Have Read

Coming in May 2007, sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick is transmogrified into a literary writer. The American Library is dedicating one of their fine fine editions to four Dick novels, including Ubik, which, in my opinion, is one of the greatest American novels.
If you haven’t read Ubik, it’s about how the reach of corporate culture extends into the land of the dead. It also features the creepiest villian, besides Enron’s Andy Fastow, in American letters. I realize that Andy Fastow, detailed in this great book, is non-fiction. But as PKD once said, Ubik is non-fiction!!
The other 3 Dick novels in the volume are: The Man in the High Castle, The 3 Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (Unfortunately, no Martian Time Slip.)
