Inhaltsangabe: A preliminary to Dick's masterwork, Valis, in which Phil appears as an explicitly named autobiographical character for the first time. Soon to be a major new film.As America gasps in the stranglehold of a skull-crushing totalitarian regime, a supernatural intelligence speaks from the stars...ARAMCHEK... the word scratched in the sidewalk of the President's childhood home.ARAMCHEK... the name of the subversive society `with no official membership' whose sole purpose is to overthrow the American government.ARAMCHEK... the word printed on a book which contains the President's signature - a book in the hands of a Communist Party organiser.ARAMCHEK... the name of a woman who may hold the key - and who has only weeks to live.Will the agents of the omniscient Valis succeed in their mission of liberation? Or will the seek-and-destroy tactics of President Ferris F. Freemont extend the mind-numbing grip of the Antagonist across the parameters of the free world?In Radio Free Albemuth, his last novel, Philip K. Dick morphed and recombined themes that had informed his fiction from A Scanner Darkly to VALIS and produced a wild, impassioned work that reads like a visionary alternate history of the United States. Agonizingly suspenseful, darkly hilarious, and filled with enough conspiracy theories to thrill the most hardened paranoid, Radio Free Albemuth is proof of Dick's stature as our century's greatest science fiction writer.This prophetic novel of social control and political oppression is now to be turned into a major new movie starring Alanis Morrissette, which promises a provocative and edgy antidote to the summer blockbusters.

Buchbeschreibung Arbor House ., New York, 1985. Octavo, boards. First edition. Posthumously published draft of VALIS, which ultimately mutated into something quite different. The whole novel "is set in an alternate universe in which a certain Ferris F. Fremont, rather than Richard Nixon, was elected president in 1978. The two are not dissimilar, but Nixon's paranoia about domestic 'enemies' becomes Fremont's all-out campaign against a supposed conspiracy known as Aramchek." - Mackey, Philip K. Dick, p. 115.
