The Defenders – Philip K Dick

Philip K Dick is nothing short of a genius. Not just a literary genius, he is that, but a true genius.

If there is another author who does a better job of conveying the paranoia of a generation, I would really like to know the name of that person.

The Defenders is amazing. In roughly 18,000 words, he conveys the idiocy of war that most people would find hard to convey in ten times as many words.

I don’t know why I’ve gone up until yesterday without reading any of Philip K Dick’s stories, but I’ll tell you, I’m definitely kicking myself for waiting for so long.
