  • It could never happen.

    By GilHero
    I loved this story, but mankind will never achieve the goal of true peace. It is not in our nature. A very original story line. It is worth the five starts.
  • Preemptive Technology

    By Luis A. del Valle
    A common thought is that throughout the centuries, even with all our technological change, human being haven't changed that much; at our core human beings are as aggressive as we were at the dawn history. This short story presents an interesting variation on this theme. The writing is succinct and ironic, while the plot is clear and yet intriguing. Great little read. I can see why so many of his short stories have been turned into movies. Sad though that he couldn't enjoy his eventual financial success.
  • Wonderful!

    By Bsis304
    This is a short story that was engaging and fun! PKD writes well and the story is enjoyable. The best parts are the underlying themes. I'll keep those to myself as to not spoil other's thoughts, but it's a good story to think about.
  • An Eye Opener

    By Mikehoe
    The story begins like a question, as it unfolds the answer has been in our heart.
