Philip K. Dick ~ The Man In The High Castle

It’s America in 1962.

Slavery is legal once again.

The few Jews who still survive – hide under assumed names.

In San Francisco,

the I Ching is as common as the Yellow Pages.

All because some 20 years earlier

the United States lost a war

– and it is now occupied jointly

by Nazi Germany and Japan.


This harrowing,

Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction.

[ His writing directly inspired the movies  :

Total Recall,


Minority Report,


A Scanner Darkly,


The Adjustment Bureau,




and Blade Runner ]


With “The Man In The High Castle”

Philip K. Dick broke the barrier

between science fiction

and the serious novel of ideas.


In it,

Dick offers a haunting vision of history

as a nightmare

from which it may just be possible to awake.
