PKD

I finished the audiobook of Martian Time-slip by Philip K. Dick on the way back from a conference today. I was a bit disappointed overall, although it may just be that this story hasn't aged as well as many of Dick's others. The story very much has that golden age s.f. environment where we all have flying cars and are living on Mars back in 1980. Not that there's anything wrong with that vision of a future that never came to be, especially since this was very much a novel about 1964, but Dick has written much better than this.
