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

Hugo Award-winning novel is the work that established Philip K. Dick as an innovator in science fiction.
[ His writing directly inspired the movies :
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.
Dick offers a haunting vision of history
as a nightmare
from which it may just be possible to awake.
