  • I love P. K. Dick. I've read all his books; and T3SoPE (if I can write such an acronym) is one of my favorites (with, say, Ubik, Flow my tears, the policeman said and the very strange Counter-clock world, and a dozen other ones.) In this novel the peculiar talent of P. K. Dick of burring reality and illusion is at its highest point. I recommend it. Crucifixion is only one of the themes, virtuosly subverted, Dick not being at this time become a paranoid mystic (as when he wrote the disturbing VALIS regained.)
    • I also bought Ubik when I bought Three Stigmata. I'm going to read that next.
      • If you liked PKD's religious themes interwoven into a SciFi story, then you absolutely must read A Maze of Death. The plot and ending are quintessential PKD, incorporating religious exploration, drug experimentation (I think...), and fundemental and drastic changes to the nature of reality.

        If I say anything more, I'll spoil it. It's a shame it's not one of his more well known pieces. It was much more enjoyable than Man in the High Castle or The Zap Gun.
