A dazzling speculative novel of 'counterfactual history' from one of America's most highly-regarded science fiction authors, Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle includes an introduction by Eric Brown in Penguin Modern Classics.Philip K. Dick's acclaimed cult novel gives us a horrifying glimpse of an alternative world - one where the Allies have lost the Second World War.

Djuppsykologisk science fiction där axelmakterna har vunnit Andra världskriget. Bland det bästa Dick skrev, vilket betyder att det är bland det bästa i genren över huvud taget.
