THE SIMULACRA. Philip K. Dick.


New York: Ace Books, Inc., [1964]. Small octavo, cover by Ed Emshwiller, pictorial wrappers. First edition. Ace Book F-301. The USEA (the United States and Europe combined) is a repressive police state run by a covert ruling council who delude the masses by rewriting history. The council's figurehead is a simulacrum president. "The United States' long-lived First Lady proves to be a simulacrum, in this comedy of twenty-first-century life by a master of the bizarre. It's an overpopulated novel which flies off wildly in too many directions, but it nevertheless adds up to a cherishable Dickian vision of a crazy, crazy world." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition, p. 329. Age darkening to text block, mild rubs to spine ends, a fine, unread copy. (25111). Item #25111
