SF Masterwork of the Week: Dr Bloodmoney

Philip K. Dick‘s 1965 post-apocalyptic classic Dr Bloodmoney returns to the SF Masterworks list, with a brand new cover and an introduction from Hugo and Arthur C. Clarke Award-winner Pat Cadigan. Enjoy!

Seven years after the day of the bombs, Point Reyes was luckier than most places. Its people were reasonably normal – except for the girl with her twin brother growing inside her, and talking to her. Their barter economy was working. Their resident genius could fix almost anything that broke down. But they didn’t know they were harbouring the one man who almost everyone left alive wanted killed…

Shortlisted for the 1966 Nebula Award.

New introduction by Pat Cadigan.


Dr Bloodmoney is available as an SF Masterworks paperback and an SF Gateway eBook. You can find more of Philip K. Dick’s work via his author page on the SF Gateway website and read more about him at his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
