In this final episode on Philip K. Dick's Solar Lottery, I take a closer look at some of the themes of the novel and give my final thoughts. Thanks for listening to this series. It has been fun getting into one of Dick's most thematically rich novels.

In this episode, we finish up with the chapter summaries for Solar Lottery. What will happen to this world when the crisis passes? Dick does not give us easy answers (or really any answers). Like the frontier, the future is unwritten.

I am back from the USA! Thanks for waiting. Here is the next part on Solar Lottery. It is a very action and plot-heavy section, but still has some great Philip K. Dick themes to explore.

In this episode, I look at the second half of John Steinbeck's Pastures of Heaven. Sorry for the delays in publishing these episodes. I am enjoying my summer in Wisconsin. Things will get more regular when I get back to Taiwan.

And we come to Dick's first novel, Solar Lottery. In this episode we will look at the first three chapters of the book, which does a lot to set up the setting and the world.

In this episode we start a new series on John Steinbeck, beginning with his novel of short stories The Pastures of Heaven.

In this episode of the Philip K. Dick Book Club we take on one of my favorite early Dick stories (novella to be honest), "The Variable Man".
(I mention that Hollywood never took on A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, but I was wrote. There was a 1944 adaptation. I stand by that my claim that this could make a good movie if revisted.)
Let me know what you think? Does "The Variable Man" deserve more love?
