  1. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch A Philip K Dick novel so crazy I found myself laughing out loud on every page Here are a dozen key ingredients PKD mixes in his hallucinogenic science fiction roller coaster The illegal hallucinogenic drug Can DDrug of choice for those colonists on Mars and other remote planets, a drug enabling its chewers to inhabit the same body and mind stream and then travel together to an appealing illusory reality in another dimension.The legal sort of hallucinogenic d [...]


  2. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch was the kind of book that Kilgore Trout, the fictional recurring character in Kurt Vonnegut s novels based on science fiction writer Theodore Sturgeon would have been proud of deftly original, scathingly satirical, wildly entertaining and funny in the kind of subtle way that would have pleased Vonnegut It is good in many different ways, and works well on different levels First published in 1965, this is one of Dick s earlier works that deals both directly an [...]

  4. Reading this book felt a bit like dreaming, after a while it became like a dream within a dream, soon after it became full on Inception Without going into the synopsis in any detail, this novel features a drug induced virtual reality, initially with the aid of Ken and Barbie like dolls in their nicely furnished dollhouse The VR sessions are called translations , a very popular past time in the hellish Mars colony The drug is caled Can D, later on a new type of drug called Chew Z comes on the mar [...]


  5. Unfortunately this suffers from what we may call the Citizen Kane syndrome Someone somewhere must have given this thing a proper name It s when a groundbreaking original work of art gets ripped off so many times by lesser mortals not necessarily out of malignant plagiarism, mostly because the original art introduces various techniques which become part of the lexicon that when you actually get round to seeing reading hearing the original thing, your reaction is okay, is that it Pity the poor fil [...]


  6. As usual, Phillip K Dick has left me with spirally eyes and a whirring brain I d like to give a plot summary, but I ll let someone else do that and egotistically save this space for my own musings philipkdickfans ttsopa There are summaries I found that I like better, but this one provides a useful foil against which to formulate my own thoughts about this book, which rather has my mind tied in knots To start with, I don t see the book s theme as revolving around drugs and hallucinations, cut and [...]


  7. The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch What if god were a lonely drug pushing alien Originally posted at Fantasy LiteratureThis was the 10th and final PKD book I read last year after 40 years without reading any I always felt as a teenager that I would get from his books as an adult, and I think I was right This one is a real mind bending experience, deliciously strange and tantalizing with its ideas.The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch 1965 is one of the earliest PKD novels that deals overtly [...]


  8. My first encounter with the fiction of Philip K Dick is his 1964 novel The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch I was looking for something a bit challenging to read that wouldn t give me an ice cream headache At my library, found a beautiful, barely read edition of this novel printed in 2011 PKD fans might fault my decision to make this title my introduction to the man s mind bending tales of technological perversion, ecological disaster and the search for identity I understand that he s written [...]


  9. Searching for meaning in drugs, god, corporate culture, human evolution And then searching for meaning directly from and of a god of sorts Completely berserk in terms of pacing and plotting, and borders on incoherency in the second half, but totally worth it anyway Dick s conceptual reach exceeds his grasp by a decent margin but the reach is broad and esoteric and stimulating nonetheless.Incidentally, the covers for the old editions of his are so much better than the one I ve got I mean, it s pr [...]



  10. Uneori, c r ile lui Philip K Dick mi par a fi scoase dintr un vis ntreaga lume i pierde substan a, trecutul, prezentul i zeci de variante ale viitorului se contopesc, cauzalitatea este doar o amintire, iar mintea nu poate s disting adev rul de halucina ie


  11. An incredibly prescient satire on multimedia addiction losing oneself in artificial environments to escape or at least muffle an undesirable reality The picture PKD paints of the sad Martian colonists taking drugs and playing with dolls becoming one with the dolls reminds me of theereotypicalage the world has of the American nerd stuffing himself with junkfood and playing Sims, losing track of the time, of the day while living a better or at least dynamic life on a vibrant earth.ultimately a mi [...]


  12. I m a fan of Philip K Dick, but I read his stuff years ago I eagerly sought this book out because I heard from a couple of people that this one was one of his best Maybe I merely disagree, maybe my affection for PKD has waned, maybe I need now than he can give.Dick is famous for his drug use and for taking speed before cranking out an entire novel in fifteen hours flat This book, to me, feels like his most drug influenced book Not because of his crazy ideas, those are to be expected It s becaus [...]


  13. I didn t like this at first, because I couldn t make sense of where Dick was taking it At the end, I loved it He created a myth, based on religious beliefs Brilliant Some of it scared me This guy took Chew Z, rather than Can D, a powerful hallucinogen which makes your hallucination a simulacra of alternate reality It goes deep into plot revelations The kind of stuff I love, mind stuff, like The Matrix movie which I can t watch any because I novelized it scene by scene and don t enjoy it any Dick [...]

  15. Invasione interna Dio ha promesso la vita eterna io posso metterla in commercio Lettura dalle molteplici interpretazioni, a tratti straripante per il devastante contenuto La cinica visione dell autore mette alla berlina le nostre contraddizioni e insoddisfazioni l umanit tratteggiata totalmente allo sbando, in perenne ricerca di sicurezza.Il disperato bisogno d evadere vedi gli inquietanti modellini di Perkie Pat e Walt si concretizza in un tremendo distacco dalla realt , mentre i punti di rifer [...]

I tell myself lies everyday Because when things aren t the way you want them, it s nice to have a little white lie to live within Makes things, tolerable Makes you wake up in the morning and think, Oh yeah, there s that to look forward to In the back of your mind there s a voice reminding you, that s a lie, that s a lie, that s a liebut you go along with it because Because Palmer Eldritch is the lie I tell myself The embodiment The giver of the lie The one who perpetuates it Who says that living [...]

  18. What If God Was One of Us Trying to Make His Way Home I cannot say that I enjoyed reading The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch quite the way I enjoyed reading The Man in the High Castle or most of the short stories I read by PKD, because, all in all, it was very zany and that in an especially zany kind of way Not annoyingly zany but still uh, you know what I mean.It is quite difficult to summarize the story told in this novel but the main conflict is between the big businessman Leo Bulero, who [...]


  19. What I would give for a dick I don t know, but I m perfectly willing to pay 2 pounds a piece for them Review of Saint Maybe and Stigmata There were clues in the titles, I realise retrospectively, that these were both books about God Saint in one, Stigmata in the other a complete coincidence that I read them back to back.But what different takes well, they would be different, wouldn t they Tyler and Dick Not two authors one would typically mention in the same breath.Saint Maybe deals with a perso [...]

  22. I wonder what it is about dream sequences in stories that makes them so dissatisfying There is the obvious sense of feeling cheated the reader viewer builds up a relationship with a character If it turns out that relationship was built on false premises, on nonsense, we feel conned, mocked even Our trust in the author was broken.Yet at the same time, what does it matter The story within a book or a film is or less just a higher level dream sequence, isn t it The Three Stigmata is full of PKD ha [...]


  23. The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch by Philip K Dick is a Science Fiction novel about a new hallucinogenic drug and it s very unusual and weird consequences.In the future the world has become greatly overpopulated and even the offworld colonies are cramped and unpleasant An illegal drug which a large proportion of the population take, called Can D, takes users into an hallucinogenic state which can be shared with friends Palmer Eldritch, missing and thought possibly dead, returns to the solar [...]


  24. This is a terrible novel.Dick s prose is the worst prose I have ever read in a professionally published work It is beyond bland, beyond clunky, well into painful The novel is essentially all dialog The worldbuilding is perfunctory and amateurish There is no sense of place and no atmosphere Everything takes place as if in a white room.All the characters are cardboard, and they are all the same character They all talk the same way, in a dull 1960 s casual style with occasional 1960s slang They are [...]

  26. This book left me cold The plot was all over the place and the characters unformed Yet there were passages which promised better Overall a chore to read rather than a delight.I am still trying to work out if Dick is a genius or the Barbara Cartland of sci fi Perhaps its me Hey ho.


  27. This complicated and rambling little tale by science fiction guru Philip K Dick put forth some fascinating ideas and had some very interesting things to say on a number of topics However, the main plotline left only a vague impression on me by the end, and I was bothered by some of its strangely short sighted social observations throughout.For a speculative novel, this book packs the ideas together like sardines Scattered among its pages are developments in global warming, colonization, drug tra [...]
