THE BEST OF PHILIP K. DICK

Ballantine paperback, first edition, March 1977. Cover artwork
by Vincent Di Fate.

"HERE - IN THE DEFINITIVE PHILIP K. DICK COLLECTION - ARE 19 OF HIS MOST FAMOUS STORIES...STORIES THAT LOOK BEHIND WHAT IS APPARENTLY REAL TO WHAT IS REALLY REAL! 
IF THERE WERE NO BENNY CEMOLI 
Then it would have been necessary to invent him, because somebody had to be blamed for the state of the world! 
AUTOFAC 
Automation can be a wonderful thing - as long as somebody is always in control! 
HUMAN IS 
There is more to being a human being than looking like one - and when she discovered that, she knew all would be well! 
BREAKFAST AT TWILIGHT 
They knew the end of the world was in sight - but nobody wanted to listen, alas! 
- AND LOTS MORE."
