Description

Glen Runciter is dead. Or is he? Someone died in the explosion orchestrated by his business rivals, but even as his funeral is scheduled, his mourning employees are receiving bewildering messages from their boss. And the world around them is warping and regressing in ways which suggest that their own time is running out. If it hasn't already.

Review quote

SALES POINTS 'One of the most original practitioners writing any kind of fiction, Dick made most of the European avant-garde seem like navel-gazers in a cul-de-sac' - Sunday Times 'My literary hero' -- Fay Weldon 'For everyone lost in the endlessly multiplicating realities of the modern world, remember: Philip K. Dick got there first' -- Terry Gilliam

Review Text

Another of Mr. Dick's staggeringly complex futuramas in which a group of "anti-talents" (they negate telepathic and precognitive abilities) are caught up in an explosion, slowly taken back in time to 1939 and spend an amazing amount of energy trying to figure out if they're alive or dead and/or if there is a clever saboteur in their midst. Ubik stands for ubiquitous. . . and Excedrin headache number 99. (Kirkus Reviews)
