Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch
Not too long from now. when exiles from a blistering Earth huddle miserably in Martian colonies. the only things that make life bearable are the drugs. Can-D „translates” those who take it into the bodies of Barbie-like dolls and opens up an idyllic world. Now there’s competition from the mysterious Palmer Eldritch: a substance called Chew-Z. marketed under the slogan „God promises eternal life. We can deliver it.” The question is: What kind of eternity? And who-or what-is the deliverer? This more addictive experience might bring users closer to God. but in a world where everyone is tripping. no promises can be taken at face value. In this wildly disorienting fun house of a novel. populated by God-like-or perhaps satanic-take-over artists and corporate psychics. Philip K. Dick explores mysteries that were once the property of St. Paul and Aquinas. His wit. compassion. and knife-edged irony make this novel moving as well as genuinely visionary.

He finds himself dodging cloudbursts. raccoons. spilled blood. and his obsessed boss. who needs Bob’s presence on the six o’clock news to improve the ratings. Adding to his problems is his elusive film editor. an entrepreneur usually too busy peddling stolen porno tapes to work on the program. Through this hectic action wander rain-soaked fans in weird costumes vying for places and prizes on the station’s game show. They make it easy for suspects-disguised as surgeons. nuns. and chickens-to melt into the crowd. As Bob Christopher approaches dead center of the w
