In the overcrowded world and cramped space colonies of the late twenty-first century, tedium can be endured through the use of the drug Can-D, which enables the user to inhabit a shared illusory world.

But when industrialist Palmer Eldritch returns from an interstellar trip, he brings with him a new drug, Chew-Z, which is far more potent than Can-D. But could the permanent state of drugged illusion it induces be part of something much more sinister?

Reviews

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

For everyone lost in the endlessly multiplicating realities of the modern world, remember: Philip K. Dick got there first
Terry Gilliam
Dick quietly produced serious fiction in a popular form and there can be no greater praise
MICHAEL MOORCOCK
One of the genuine visionaries that North American fiction has produced
