We Can Remember It for You Wholesale by Philip K. Dick He awoke-and wanted Mars. The valleys, he thought. What would it be like to trudge among them? Great and greater yet: the dream grew as he became fully conscious, the dream and the yearning. He could almost feel the enveloping presence of the other world, which only Government agents and high officials had seen. A clerk like himself? Not likely.

The Book of Dust 1: La Belle Sauvage-Philip Pullman. 20 February 2011 For me, this is the archetypal Philip K Dick story. The Essex Serpent – Sarah Perry. The Noise of Time – Julian Barnes. I can’t remember if I first read it around the time it was published in 1966: as one of the scientists in it says, it’s ‘the actual memory, with all its vagueness, omissions and ellipse. hat’s second-best. Maybe I first read it when Paul Verhoeven’s Total Recall came out, to see how much of that film was based on Dick’s original. A lot, since you ask, at least in the first 15 or 20 minutes. I’ll come back to Paul Verhoeven.

  • It isn't my favorite PK Dick story, but other than "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" (Blade Runner), ""We Can Remember it for You Wholesale" is the most widely known story in movie form (as Total Recall), and it appears as the title of this short story collection. If you haven't read much from Dick, this is a good introduction to him.

  • I am a big fan of PKD. I love his short stories. How PKD plays around with reality is always quite entertaining. I like how things are never quite how they first appear in his writings. His unique and slightly paranoid view of common everyday things that the rest of us take for granted makes me stop and think about things in a new way. I like writers who can make me think and ask me interesting and sometimes troubling questions. Collect and read all five volumes of his short stories. You will find it is quite worth it.

  • We can Remember it for You Wholesale may have been the inspiration for Total Recall, but frankly, I enjoyed the original story better, especially the plot twist at the end. As for the other books in this volume, some are very good, many are not. There are too many are post-apocalyptic earth stories(Dick's nuclear apocalypse seems to have occurred about 1970, by the way). Be aware, there are gems here, but also much dirt. Happy digging.

  • I was unable to get this book in New Zealand which is amazing given its inspiration behind Total Recall, Blade Runner amongst others. No one seemed to know about it

    All of Philip K Dick's short stories in this book were written in the 50's. Some stories such as The Cookie Lady, the opening story, are downright creepy, while others such as The Adjustment Team (which I think would have inspired the recent movie with Matt Damon), are inventive and with a twist. All of his stories have some sort of twist to them.Robots feature in many stories either as rulers of the planet Earth in James P Crow, or as cab drivers, and so on like in like in the story A Present for Pat.

  • I'm a big fan of Philip K. Dick so this was a delight. The stories are short and quick to read, which is great for short road trips or riding on the bus or train. I will be honest and say a few of the stories weren't as good as usual, but seeing as they don't take long to read, it isn't much of a waste of time, plus it may be a matter taste. Just about every story had a very clever twist, the kind you tend to find in episodes of Twilight Zone, which I love. This is a great edition to have if you enjoy sci-fi shorts or are a P.K. Dick fan!

  • Phillip K. Dick does not ever disappoint. I decided to reread all of his short stories. This book and the others in the series were a fast way to acquire almost ever short story. Had a great time. Amazing how much I had forgotten about these stories and particularly Dick's humor.

  • If you like sci-fi or even just an interesting story, then check out Phillip K. Dick.

  • Great read and classic American author. This author and a few others including Asimov, have inspired creative minds of the future.
