    DADOES isn't the best example of psychadelic PKD. If you really want something psychadelic, go find a copy of The Zap Gun (where weapons designers do their best work when in an altered state of reality for days at a time), The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch (where users of the drugs Can-D and Chew-Z duke it out). Better yet, if you want the drug induced schizophrenia with none of the psychadelic culture, check out A Scanner Darkly.

    Of course, one of the most classic PKD novels is Ubik. If I said anything about it, I'd ruin the entire plotline. :-)

    While on the topic of H. G. Wells, check out The World Set Free, a novel he wrote around WWI about airplanes, nukular bombs and the like. Quite prophetic.
