thanks for that word. I've been getting tired of using "pretentious" and "airs" is almost archaic.



Philip K. Dick is ok. I would consider his writing something cerebral. He takes a simple idea and gives it a grit like a dime detective novel.

I've read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep and The Man in the High Castle. "Sheep" is way different from the movie that was based on it, Blade Runner, but it can answer a lot of questions about the characters and motivations behind them. Both the movie and the book examine what it means to be be human but the movie is more sophisticated where the book is simple and almost dated.

The Man in the High Castle is a strange allegory of the Cold War.
