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.

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.
