I read the first half of Philip K. Dick's "The Man Who Japed" last night. It was written in 1956 and I'm surprised at how developed it is . . . in an alternate universe, "The Man Who Japed" might be on high-school summer reading lists along with "Brave New World," "Fahrenheit 451" and "1984." It's "brisk" by PKD standards, but very effective and laugh-out-loud funny.

Tomorrow I'm going to have an interview taped for a forthcoming radio show. Most of it will be about Mars, I expect, but it might get significantly weirder. I hope it does.
